Sky Zone/Bass Pro Shop Adventure with my sixth-grade Bandit team

November 21, 2014

I took my sixth-grade Bi-State Bandit League football team Saturday to Tulsa for its “end-of-the-year party.” I’ve had some of these kids for four years, and I really wanted to do something special for them.
We left Poteau at 9 a.m. and went to Muldrow, since half of them were playing Stilwell for the Pansy Middle School Raiders in the Muldrow Tournament at 10 a.m. that morning.
After the game, we headed out for Tulsa and got there by 1 p.m. The first stop was Sky Zone indoor trampoline park on 61st Street.
