Fun-Day a Suc­cess

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On Sun­day May 31 the Lime-Trevor Daniel Foot­ball Devel­op­ment Pro­gramme held a Fun­Day at the Sab play­ing field. The event has been hailed a suc­cess drawing par­tic­i­pa­tion from chil­dren and their par­ents.

Ac­cord­ing to the or­ga­niz­ers, although fam­i­lies en­joyed only 11 out of the 20 events on the menu it was still a de­li­cious treat for all. At the penul­ti­mate race there was a tie for lead po­si­tion as Ac­coun­tants, En­gi­neers, Jour­nal­ists and Phar­ma­cists (the names of the teams) all bat­tled on to claim gold. “Res­cue (won­der bed­sheet)” would de­cide the first ever “Fun Cham­pi­ons of the World” and in the end the re­sults were as fol­lows: 4th place with 29 points - En­gi­neers 3rd place with 32 points - Ac­coun­tants 2nd place with 40 points - Phar­ma­cists 1st place with 43 points - the mighty Jour­nal­ists.

The teams en­gaged in: onion and spoon, foot­bowl­ing, sack re­lay, tug of war, three legged re­lay, con­joined cross­ing, linked race, blind fill, dizzy re­lay, res­cue (won­der bed­sheet) and the favourite of the day, Chi­nese Skip which took many of the moth­ers back to their pri­mary school days. It was a vi­cious “Jump Off” with Team Jour­nal­ists clear­ing up to the height of the dreaded waist. Ac­coun­tants and Phar­ma­cists both cleared knees while En­gi­neers, de­spite their per­fect jump­ing form, could only clear an­kle height.

The or­ga­niz­ers would like to thank the kids and par­ents, es­pe­cially those par­ents who wish they were still kids, for an amaz­ing day.

Spe­cial thanks go to the staff and of­fi­cials for their ef­forts as well as to Lime, San­dals,”K’s Kiddy Shack”, Renwick & Com­pany, Du Boulay’s, The Voice, Val­ley Cold Stor­age, Temp­ta­tions Perfumes & Gifts and Ebeneza Pro­duce.

The next event will be an in-house tour­na­ment on Satur­day June 27th from 9am to 3pm.
