Fort Frenzy, Round A

Oh boy, group A just had a wonderful day out in the sun, playing games for their forts - Peela, Neela, Laal, and Hara battled it out on Wednesday and they battled hard. From freezing our toes off to running across the school in a scavenger hunt, it is safe to say that Fort Frenzy was a bundle of fun.

My team (Peela 3) did great. We had such a blast and it was the greatest thing of the semester for me and many more. Daniel in grade 8 said, “Well that exceeded my expectations.”


The teachers also had a blast as they cheered on the students while the activities were going on. Mr. Hoiseth, a 6th-grade teacher said, "Fort Frenzy was awesome this year!! I think everyone really needed to get outside, sun around and have some fun!!"

During the competition, it was an all-out war as students fought tooth and nail to win.

The Fort Cup is the most prized thing in middle school for many. Some people were even willing to power through injuries to help their teams. I sprained my ankle badly, but still kept playing because I wanted to win.


This was also a good relationship builder for students. Friendships were made because people met each other, some for the first time.


But let’s talk about the games and the results.


The Games

  • Capture the flag

  • scavenger hunt

  • basketball

  • heads up

  • cup stacking

  • icy toes

  • relay Rubix cubes

  • tic tac toe.


All games were hosted by different teachers but they all were fun. Here are my top 3.

  1. heads up

  2. icy toes

  3. basketball hoops / tic tac toe

But let’s talk about the most talked about event of all…ICY TOES.

Man what an event, I almost did not do it, and once I did I almost got a frostbite. Like sticking your feet in that bucket was funny...but painful. The goal was to get 10 marbles out; one of my teammates got 9 in 60 seconds - I heard some people got 10.


But seriously, who thought of this, whoever it is, you are a genius.


Results

All right the time you’ve all been waiting for - the current leaderboard:

4th Place - Laal

Tied for 2nd Place - Hara and Neela

Winner - Peela


Yes go Peela and congrats to everyone else. Next week group B will be playing for their fort. Even only online people will play their own version of fort frenzy. I myself am Peela and will wish luck to everyone playing next week...especially Peela.
