Tough-man Contest

Are you tough enough?

This was the question we asked everyone as we started the Tough-man Contest. Clint and the ABKA put together this contest as a fun, healthy activity to do during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. Clint compiled a list of events (see below) and had different age groups compete against each other. We had everyone from 3 year olds to 50 year olds competing! It was too fun, and I'm so thankful that we had a good turn out. We had about 20-30 contestants and about 60 people overall attend the event.

One of our ABKA members graciously asked CAMP and NSEDC for donations to give as prizes for the contestants. Our expectations were passed as we had tons to give away! The winners of the contests were able to pick either water bottles, sweatshirts, Brooks running bags, walking pedometers, and New Testament Bibles!!

The fifth event, Kick Pad Sumo Wrestling: 

Unfortunately my camera ran out of memory. Yup. I need to take note that we need more memory cards...There was also another event that I wasn't able to get pictures of, which was the seal hop. If you don't know what the seal hop is, it's an event that they used to do in the older days. It's where you get down in a push-up position, and with one single motion, you hop up on your arms and legs. You continue the motion the full length of the gym. It's hard, but so funny to watch!

We had a successful Saturday, and I think everyone had a great time and went home with at least one prize. Some went home with more than one! We had snacks and refreshments after all the participants hard work! This will be a fun annual ABKA event that Clint and I think will be fun for the community.
