A Win-Win-Win Situation
July 2009

The U16 Boys Premier team recently spent an afternoon moving brush piles and carrying firewood for the Thayer family.  No, this was not a form of punishment from their coach Tom Johnson!  The team offered this service in the Live Auction held at the Club’s Gala Night last February.

After the work was completed, the guys then jumped on the trampoline, hit the pool with cannon balls, and enjoyed grilling dinner.  This was a great bonding activity for the team preparing for Regionals and Super Y.

This is an activity that Tom has encouraged his team to do for several years now.  The Club wins with funds raised by the auction, the Team wins with the bonding, and the high bidder wins (Mr. Thayer, now 2 years in a row).  Will anyone outbid him next year??
