John dredged up trays with an assist from Nick
The athletes awaiting their events.
Matt and Mike battled across the trampoline bridge but spent a lot of time in the water.
Jonathan and Tim moving golf balls with their toes
Looks more like a ski jumper
Ben, Mike and George in the row boat and kayak event. (Strategic error - Mike got his rowing merit badge but Ben took the oars)
The race to build the sandwich.  Everyone gave it their best but there wasn't much left at the finish line.  But Joe didn't let it go to waste.
The buttered melon challenge.  Unfortunately it was so well hidden only seconds remained to gain control once it was found
Too much excitement + too much sugar = crash.  Anthony noted that a well placed towel can make even the hardest rock  suitable for 40 winks.
