I've been at Kiamichi Baptist Assembly [KBA] Camp in Talihina with Double Branch Baptist Church's youth group this week. I was one of the sponsors and the event co-ordinator.
As you can imagine, all of those kids wanted to do everything. So, we signed up for every sport and activity offered for the week.
Among the activities offered was a â€śrope challenge courseâ€ť with a giant swing as well as ziplining and the dreaded â€śLeap of Faith.â€ť The â€śLeap of Faithâ€ť is a 25-foot long pole that you climb up and have to jump off and try to grab a flag about 10 feet away from you.
â€śBungeeâ€ť Barbara Billy is all suited up and says she wants to try. She races up the pole faster than I did. She gets to the top. To the surprise of all of us, she gets one foot up on top of the pole. She sits there for a few seconds and yells, â€śI'm gonna try now before my legs give out,â€ť and leaps. She flies through the air and grabs the yellow flag.
In last week's column, one of the young persons with a fish was misidentified. Her name is Maddy Ramsey. The Poteau Daily News regrets the error.
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and our veterans.
Have a great weekend.
