Fun Day 2016

Fun Day 2016

Hey, this is FUN! Take a full day with back-to-back constant events, fill the spaces with people primed for participation, and you have a sure success – even in the rain!

You start out at an early hour with people on the move, walking or biking all over the place. This is followed by a tricky version of golf playfully named “Golf Shuffleboard” using a putter on carpeting. At the same time there is real putting on the practice putting green with prize money being rewarded. Then there is the aesthetic appeal of visiting other people’s carefully chosen units, and looking at the interior decorating and the very smart use of space.

Right after lunch and an inopportune rain shower, comes a water show featuring twenty mermaids. It is a short show but a spectacular one, and the viewers are truly charmed and entertained. Meanwhile, two hundred little yellow ducks, turned loose in the pond for a race to the bridge, needed to be coaxed along, due to a lack of wind and waves. No matter, two kayaks solved the problem by churning things up, and the ducks made the expected progress. Alas, the kayaks dumped their riders bringing about unanticipated high spirits on the part of onlookers.

You think that’s the end? No, no, no, there’s more to come: additional golf competitions, shuffleboard, billiards, and the event you can always count on to draw a crowd – BINGO.

Later in the evening, inside where rain cannot disrupt pleasure, came the music and dancing which brought the day of fun to a restful though upbeat conclusion.
