Challenger All-Star Game A Great Success

Gang,
This past Saturday was one for the ages. Friends and family met at Seminary Park for the annual All-Star game. The game featured two teams of Challengers taking each other on. Due to a scoreboard malfunction the final score is unknown though there were reports that the game finished in a tie. As usual the Challengers stepped their usual great play to an even higher level. Defense was the theme of this year's game with a number of half inning finishing with three outs. This is not to say that the game was short of offense. Coach Coleman, our pitcher for the game, spent most of the game defending himself from rockets hit right back at him. Coach Marty set a record for getting dirty originally held by Coach Ed. The coaches for both sides did a great job helping our Challenger athletes. The teams were headed up by Coaches Courtney, Stephanie, Andrea, Sarah, Sarah (yes, we have two) Katie, Ashley, Sam, Maggie just to name a few. Weezie and the Mad Dawg, Eric were dynamite on sound with assistance from John, Rich, Scott, Denise, Jeff, etc.. We were also graced by Emma with her rendition of the National Anthem. Many thanks to Mrs. Mary for her help. I hope that no one was forgotten and if they were I am sorry. The evening was really  BLAST!!!


The Special Olympics Oath

"Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."



Take Me Out To The Ball Game (Chorus)

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."


An Important Thought

Quote: I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness or ablities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
