Well, it's another fun year for the Solstice Safari. This is
my third safari, my last one having been last summer, and I'm very excited for
The Solstice Safari is a great experience. First of all, you
meet so many new people. My team last year was Team 8, the winner of the summer
safari. Winning is definitely great, but it's really just the icing on top of an
already delicious cake! We also had a great time.
I wasn't the leader, and I couldn't make it to many of the
meetings, but it was still awesome. My team made over 400 posts on the BBS
boards, which was rare for a safari a year ago. That was the summer that I
really learned about teamwork. Yeah, our team had its own fights, especially
over who was going to be team leader. But it ended up okay. We learned that the
prestige of being team leader isn't everything and that no matter who led us, we
would be a strong team if we bonded together. And that's what happened. We came
in first on all three team challenges and actually had fun in the process.
This year, I've signed up with team one. Our name is the SUPA
SAFARIARS and we are setting out to win. As of now, I'm the leader of my
team. However, it's going to be tough to win this one. Team 30 has many of last
winter's winners, whereas my team has mostly new people to the safari. But I'm
not about to lose any hope!
Anyway, I guess my point is to have a whole mess of fun this
year doing the Solstice Safari. Team leaders, lead your teams well! Don't just
set out to win. Set out to have fun, make friends with all of the team, and to
learn lots. That's really what this whole thing is about, anyway.
