Super Hero Tryouts


Check out our Poland Spring Campground Justice League!

Don’t they look super cool and brave?  I was .  . .


Miiiiii-ghty Moose!  Defender of  little campers, protector of woodland creatures,  lover of Debbie’s Wednesday ice cream!

We started the weekend by finding stolen treasure, making get away boats then racing them in the rain,  playing ping pong  and bingo too.

When Saturday dawned bright and sunny, everyone bowed down to Storm for arranging it !


The first important task on our long list of things-to-do, was to design capes and masks to hide our secret identities


Then we went right into the Tryouts!   My little camping buddies were tested by Daredevil Debbie and Spiderman


to see if they could run faster than a speeding bullet


did they have teamwork skills?


Could they jump through hoops to capture an enemy?


Leap tall buildings?


Squeeze through tight spots?


Everyone did such an awesome job!  They passed every test we threw at them!


Then, from out of nowhere, we were surrounded by the Poland Spring Campground Tie-Die Villians!


So my Super Hero campers got together and chased them away . . .

With our handy, dandy, waterballoon slingshot!

They got scared, I tell you.  Scared!!

Then they shot balloons at us, and let us catch them.

Later that day we practiced tying up villians . . .


had important discussions about Super Heroes past and present . . .


and hung out with Storm, Spidey and Bat Girl!


Actually, we hung out with lots and lots of Spideys!  Including Bear Spideys .. .

On Saturday night, Almodarr and Angelique: The Magic of the Steelgraves, magically reappeared this year to amaze and astound us!   Tami could hear their laughing and clapping all the way up at the office!

I wish I could’ve gone too, but Tami told me I had to go to bed early, ’cause I had to be at story time Sunday  morning. Early.  Really early!  9am!

My friend Sammie .. . well, she and I loooooove story time.  But we think it’s kind of early in the morning for a Sunday.  So, I tried to tell Bryant it was toooooo early.

But Bryant said it’s never too early for a story and moose feed . . .

So I tried to tell Ben.  But he said, that if he and Amanda had to get up at 7am to deliver the Sunday paper to all 132 campsites, I can get up to go to story time.

So I complained to Dave.  He said that he’d gladly get up at 9am to listen to stories over his morning coffee  . . . buuuut he has to do security rounds till at least 2am the night before.

I’m not even gonna ask Tami, ’cause I KNOW what she thinks about storytime.  I guess it has to stay at 9am Sammie!

Now we get ready for Halloween!

A whoooooole week of it!
