Ping Pong Tournament
Among the many activities on-board was a ping pong tournament on the family deck (next to the kiddie pool). Oddly, children were not permitted to enter. This was a great disappointment, as I was hoping for at least one competitive game.
I did score some points. Well, ok, two points. But they were lovely shots, unlike my other nine.
Since it was single elimination and I participated in the first game, at least you can rest assured I didn't spend too much of my vacation smashing ping pong balls across a net.
I might mention at this point that I won the previous month's ping pong tournament at work. I believe I would have done much better if I could have convinced my opponent to wear his business casual clothes, but regrettably he wouldn't.
