Trampolines and Dodgeball: What a Combination!
For our meeting this week, we chose to have an activity. More specifically, a sport that mixes jumping around on trampoline pads until you can't stand up straight, and whizzing foam balls at people. When you combine these two fun things, you get: TRAMPOLINE DODGEBALL! We went to Lazer Kraze to partake in this wacky thing. When we got there, we all put on special trampoline shoes and headed for the room marked 'Zero Gravity Training.' After that, we were divided into two groups. One group played for the first half-hour, and the other played for the second half-hour. Though the half-hour seemed more like five minutes, we had a lot of fun. Sam W. looked like he was having a great time jumping around on the trampolines. It was thirty minutes of jumping, throwing, and falling over unexpectedly.
For me, the session ended a few minutes early. Austin and Andrew were zipping balls at each other as hard as they could (brothers seem to always be that way). Austin threw one at Andrew's head, but, instead of hitting him, it accidentally sailed past and smacked me in the face. Even though I had been about ten or fifteen feet away from the intended target, my nose started gushing blood. It didn't even hurt, but I went to the bathroom to clean it up before it made a mess. Austin apologized, and I survived- yay!
After our session ended, the group spent the next thirty minutes sitting around, playing arcade games, and other stuff. Andrew was playing an arcade game and hit the jackpot- literally. He got over 200 tickets from that. He spent his tickets on sticky hands, invisible ink, and a disk gun. After everyone got out of their trampoline shoes, cashed in their tickets, and went to their drivers, we were on our way back to the church. Everyone had a blast.
