So our stake put on a horseshoes tournament this past week. A couple weeks before we were waiting by the bishop's office for ward choir and one of the counselors, Bro Pane'ee told us that we should sign up for the tournament...so we did. Team Sorenson began. After much anticipation, the day finally came for the tournament. Don't worry...we were well prepared. We looked up how to play horseshoes on youtube a few hours before. We put on our tye-dyed shirts and headed off to the park for the tournament. We were definitely the youngest ones there and the only females entered into the tourney. At this particular tournament you played to 15 and played matches best 2 out of 3. The tournament began and the first team we played was Bishop Ewing and his son James. Now I'm not trying to make excuses but we lost...probably because it was the very first time we had ever played horseshoes and were still trying to figure it out. We scored only 1 point that first game. The second game we made a 900% increase and scored 9! Most improved? I think so! We ended up losing both of those games. The second team we played we totally dominated!! We got ringers, and leaners, and a lot of one pointers. They didn't even know what hit them. And the last match we played was against pretty much the best team. We gave them their only loss of the day! WOOT! The next day we continued the tournament. We lost to Dad. He couldn't let his little girls beat him. At the end of everything, we didn't end up winning the tournament but we were probably the funnest team to play and we celebrated whenever anything good happened. All the old guys liked us! Now we if could only get the young guys to....
