Great gig!

Well I believe we scored this week for having a pretty cool gig. Last summer we were fortunate enough to be able to play for an organization called Student Life. They invited us to come and lead worship at a couple of their summer camps. We love playing these and have a lot of fun spending a few days with the students rather than just a night doing a concert. So I guess thay liked us enough to bring us back for two weeks of this years camp. The difference is our first week is camp at the beach! So we are hooked up staying in condos right on the Gulf of Mexico. I even have the luxury of having my wife and 13 month old with me. It has been pretty cool already and we are only finishing the second day.

Today we created team Downhere to enter into the beach volleyball competition and as much as I don't like to gloat I've got to mention that yes, we took the whole thing. And you thought all we knew how to do was to play music. Oh yes we have skills. We were playing against students 10 years younger than us but does that really make a difference?

So for an update . . . there WILL be an announcement very soon THIS week that you won't want to miss. I guarantee it. So keep checking our site and we will keep you in the loop!

Hope to see you soon!!

It was this paragraph, "Today we created team Downhere..." that told me you were the writer of this post. It's all about the competition with you, eh? ;) Well good work! Have fun, and play safe!

It was this paragraph, "I even have the luxury of having my wife and 13 month old with me" that tipped me off that that you were the writer of this post. I've always been a little quicker than your other sister though. LOL! Kidding Tracy!

Sounds like an absolutely great time! Being able to hang out with the kids without being responsible for them would be so cool. Being a camp counsellor would have been a lot more fun without the responsibility...but, I guess that's the whole point of it! Oh well.

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your trip. Give my sweet nephew kisses, and say hi to the gang for me!

Marc you really had a killer serve man. You took my team out in the first round of the tournament, I was a little mad. I had the opportunity meeting a couple of you, Jeremy and Glenn. (Jeremy I met you out by an elevator with a friend of mine and got a pic. with you) You guys rocked my socks off. Glenn you are my hero.

I'd just like to say in the name of sportsmanship that we played some great teams and met some wonderful people through the tournament. Yes, we did kick some teenage butt, but that happens every once in a while... "Age before beauty" as my father would always say...
