The Troops Take Over Bee Haven Acres
This year our Thanksgiving celebration was started with a paintball tournament. The troops gathered at 11:30 AM for debriefing and issuing of BDU's and firearms. The day was blustery so we all dressed in many layers (a good idea when playing paintball...as more layers decrease the sting of the hits!) We took off for the woods on ATV's and Gator loaded with additional rounds of ammuntition and refreshments. The afternoon's games included "capture the flag", "capture the fugitives", "ATV jousting", "storming the fort", several duels and "each man for himself". After 4 hours of play, we were all exhausted and starved. We returned to the house for a traditional turkey dinner. It was great to have all the kids together for such a fun day! We all had a few welts and lots of great memories to carry home with us!!
