All really awesome! The tug-of-war is my favorite, but they are all so special.

Yup! Tug o'war is definately my fav.

Roy, the he ismost probably a she but I agree - if you look closer they're actually holding the joint in the guise of paint brushes.

I like the last portrait but would have probably cropped closer.

250 teenagers on an outing, same place, same time? Must have been awsome.

gfurm - I agree, I think many places are getting this same attitude no wonder we have so many coach-potatoes. Ira what's it like on the big Island.

Kjell thanks for posting.

besides in couple years they'll ban all sorts of competitions becaus children who don't win may have nervous breakdown or feel worse and it may affect their self esteem (that's what some very clever people say, and they already started banning this sort of competitions or started giving equal prizes to everyone). and in 2012 when there's summer olympics in UK they will ask: why we don't have any medalists?

Glad to see that somewhere else people use common sense and keep all this funny stuff going. it's goodto get kids together to have some fun
I dont' know if this will be a dissapointment to you, but the competing part of the rope pulling weren't that serious. For the finals, the teachers team was about to win for the first time in world history. Then a crowd of the spectators intervened to help their compatriots, and so others gave a hand on the teachers side. It all ended with a pile of teenagers yelling and laughing and giggeling. No winner was identified!:-)

Your description of the events makes it sound like you had a barrel of fun - a good way to start off the school year. I imagine they'll be talking about it for a while. What a nice way to get people talking and into their learning.

We didn't have this when I went to school. That was only 3 decades or so ago.
