The olympics at Carefree are just so much fun! There are many events, including those that test your brain, so those not into sports can participate also! We had a parade, complete with cheerleaders and our own torch, opening ceremonies, and 2 weeks of competition and comradery! I took part in shuffleboard (both singles and doubles), pickleball, ladderball (some call it hillbilly golf), washer toss, bean bag toss (also called cornhole), and kayak races. I helped out with the scrabble matches - they were timed and I looked up words that were contested - and the water polo game - I kept the time for the halfs.

While I didn't win any ribbons or medals, I had great fun and made new friends along the way!

btw - I didn't take any of these pictures! I took part and watched the games - didn't feel like bringing my camera - many photographers all around! thanks to Pam, Cindy, another Pam, and probably others who posted pics on FB and let us download them for ourselves!
