Heber Family Reunion

We had our family reunion in Heber, AZ over Memorial Day weekend. I hosted 3 double elimination tournaments--all hotly contested. I'm posting the results here so we have something to refer back to when doing next year's seedings. We take these things very seriously. (Ok, I take it very seriously)

Ping Pong

This is the most important and longest running tournament in our family. David has been the undefeated champion for more years than I can remember, but his time will come.

Geocaching

Before flying down to Arizona, I loaded up my GPS with some caches around Heber to find with the family. More people were interested in the hunt than I anticipated.


These are from caches hidden in Black Canyon


This ammo box was an extremely well hidden, but Dave spotted it when he sat down to fix his shoe.


Does it make me a bad person if I was rooting for Dave to fall into the creek? We all went around, but he insisted on pulling that log across and making a wobbly bridge.


This would have been a much better picture if Dave had made a giant splash as he hit the water.


They wanted to do one with "funny faces".


The boys went out the next day to find a few more in town.

Love all the additional pics.
I was taking the tournament pretty seriously too.

Pretty pathetic that my name is nowhere in sight on the tournaments, oh well! Loved the geocaching, thanks Shane!
