Billings Electric took first place in the league and now have two weeks off to prepare for the tournament. The top two teams from Puyallup will play against the top two teams from Auburn & Kent. Last year we were the 2nd place team and we took 3rd place in the tournament. Wish us luck for this year.
1st Place Team 7-19-08
SEATTLE TO PORTLAND
IN TWO DAYS
Steve & John prep John's bike
Now it is time to prep Hong's bike
And they are off!!!! Actually I dropped them off a few blocks from the University of Washington & they rode over to get checked in. Nic, his friend Kohl and I drove down to pick them up at the 2 day rider stopping point (Centrailia College) and we headed off to the new Great Wolf Lodge. Steve, John & Hong stayed the night & Nic & Kohl enjoyed the waterslides before dinner. I didn't get any pictures from the finish line in Portland but hope to order them from the rides's photographers. I can make a great scrapbook page!!!
NBC BASKETBALL CAMP
I had heard great things about NBC camp from several people and was able to sign Nic up this year. It worked out great with the baseball schedule (only 1 game missed). Last night they held and hour long intensity course for family & friends to watch. There were 25 to 30 stations the boys did for about 2 minutes each and they were dripping when all was said & done. This is the first camp Nic has been to where he is away for several days. He is having a blast & working his tail off. I dropped him off Sunday while Steve was riding the STP and will pick him up on Thursday. Besides great basketball skills these kids are taught, they learn teamwork, how to motivate each other, leadership & how to be a better person.
