Wednesday, July 23

Today was a bit of a break in the training schedule as the visitors were out on the town during the morning and afternoon and the St. Louis players trained in the morning. Some of the activities for the visitors included a trip to the Arch, the City Museum, Forest Park paddle boat and Boathouse for lunch,Six Flags, malls and shopping and go carts.

In the evening we gathered at St Luke's for4v4 on grass fields, BBQ and watermelon.
It was a great night and everyone was very enthusiastic and had a great time. Then we went to the pool for a fun-filled 90 minutes of all sots of water activities, including the "unofficial" diving contest won again by Michelle van der Laan of Holland. "Jumping" Jack Tettamble was an amusing 2nd with an assortment of flops that produced near tidal wave splashes in the pool area. Everyone enjoyed themselves throughout the evening.

Jan presented the host families with some momentos and then held a raffle where all the host families won a prize from Holland.

All in all, a great day-- busy for some , rest for others -- fun for all those who joined in the evening activities.

We resume normal camp schedule on Thursday with the usual 3 sessions, although the visitors will attend the Cardinals baseball game at night.

More tomorrow, with more pictures.

Thursday:
it's RAINING! A second "cool day" in a row...The players and coaches will appreciate that...high temp expected to be in mid-20's today. 11v11 scrimmages at 2-4PM today to allow the Dutchies enough time to attend the STL Cardinals baseball game this evening...
Life is great....who would have predicted two "cool days" in a row in St. Louis in late July...
