day 2115 – housewarmers

a house warmer that started off normal with takeout chinese dinner, usual cup games, and board games; my team lost in flip cup but we whooped butts as undefeated champs in beer pong. then ended with pullup and arm wrestling challenges. i’m surprised i faired well taking some by surprise and putting up a fight for ones i didn’t think i’d stand a chance. i can be confident in my right, but the same cannot be said for my left arm as there’s a big discrepancy over the years

day 2112 – adventure plex

our gstrings midseason bonder became a season end bonder. the trampoline is a different beast because it gives so much more height and has so much recoil. it definitely took some time adjusting and controlling the front flips and back flips. we also tried the ninja courses, rock climbing walls, dodgeball and free run area. i stayed away from bubble soccer and only did back flips there. we were all so pooped when our two hours were up. i want to come back for more flips, and hopefully next time my ankles will be okay to let me try things like roundoff back flip

day 2089 – sechelt wrap

easter long weekend came to an end and so did the squirtle squad sechelt retreat. the past three days have been unforgettable in so many ways. i had a lot of fun just hanging out with this group. we didn’t do anything out of the ordinary but no shortage of action – just the basics like hotpot, barbecue, drinking, board games, and sun tan to name a few. also played around with some photoshoots, held some deeper conversations and some impromptu stints of wrestling. the bond we’ve created this weekend is beyond just being teammates

day 2087 – sechelt home

the squirtle squad has arrived at sechelt, the place we’ll call home for the next three days. the twelve of us have this beautiful place all to ourselves thanks to a hookup. we only have enough beds for half of us, but i think sleeping arrangement will be the least of our worries. i’ve never been to sechelt despite it only being a forty minute ferry ride away. consider this a season end team bonder on top of our championship celebration. the weekend ahead will be full of eating, drinking, gaming and a lot of laziness. we brought so much food and alcohol in anticipation of a weekend of hotpot and barbecue

day 2058 – obyf reunion

finally meeting up with the our balls your face gang at eastside craft house to celebrate our belated spirit owl championship. there wasn’t much to choose from on the menu to stick with my keto diet so i went with the grilled chicken salad. we had plenty of food and lots of good laughs. it seems like majority of the team is intending to return next season and somehow talked me into returning as well. i love this team, but i’m just iffy about playing in another tier 1 playoffs again

day 2053 – nerf shenanigans

the championship win was just an excuse to have a squirtle house party. it’s just another reason for the team to get together for a bonder. i skipped the dinner, but arrived just in time for the team shots. it was a fun night that had just about everything. we went from having nerf wars, to jamming with guitars, to playing story games, to some light sparring to some hockey goalie tutorials. the party went real late and i didn’t get home after past 4am. i haven’t had such a late night in a long time, but i’m glad i did

day 1949 – squirtle bonder

we as a team randomly decided to take a ceramic workshop as part of our mid season bonder. most of the people made squirtle cups in some sort of mug form. i had other ideas of a squirtle cup and wanted one in the shape of a stanley cup. i spent so much time moulding and didn’t get a chance to add any paint to it. it was so much fun getting our hands dirty and talking smack at each other. we will have to wait until the baking is complete to compare the turnout and see who has bragging rights
