Ahhhh... Now, how should I start? This year R-U-L-E-D. Especially over last year. This year we had no fear for the Invalid Logins, because they were a thing of the past.. (Maybe Scott decided to check things ahead of time to make sure.) This was probably the best camp I have been at, this making it my 4th year at camp. Every year is something special, but this year .. I don't know. It was great, even though this year I couldn't get on as much due to work. Let's hope next years camp runs pretty much as smoothly as this years did.
This years camp had a variety of different activities to do. The classical "Face Painting" remained. Some other activities included Box Art Challenge (Majora's Mask), Canoe Trip, Trophy Design, Mario Golf Tournament, Loft Monster Hunt, Trophy Search, Make a Profile for NOAMike, Prof. Oak's Challenge, and Prof. Elm's Challenge.
The victims for the "Face Painting" this year were the following: Travis (Monday), Mike (Tuesday), Taylor (Wednesday), Indiana (Thursday), and Dan (Friday). Some of the pictures pretty wild, although that's what anyone should expect from the NSiders, as we take full advantage of payback! =D
Prof. Oak's Challenge consisted of you finding one Pokémon that day and doing the puzzle that went with it. Prof. Elm's Challenge was to find a new Pokémon hidden among camp. There were 4 new Pokémon introduced in this way.
Some of the places that existed this year to chit chat with your friends were the following: Bonfire, Cabin 1-20, The Moon (after it crashed), Half Pipe, NOAHQ, Romani Ranch, Pokémon Stadium, Battle Zone, Lake, Sunken Ship, Diving Platform, Sulfur Drain, Clubhouse, Tennis Court, Green, and Kirby's Messhall.
Every year, at Camp Hyrule, some NOA's undies ended up on the flag pole near the end of the week. Although I didn't see that this year, but there were quite a few shockgames of capturing Dan, Mike, and Trav's undies. Ooo.. look at those thongs. ;)
Well, there's not much else to say about camp other than it ruled ALL. It could not have been better, especially to make up for last years camp. There were new NOAs... new chatters.... and new activities, but it's the same camp. Nothing could get better than CH2K.
