BTLN UPDATE - BRIGADE NIGHT EDITION
The night started at the Twisted Tomato, it was our pregame meal before Brigade Night. Our Meal at the Twisted Tomato was dubbed "Pizza with Pike" by Ryley and Charles. This is a fitting name and will probably stick but only time will tell. There were around fifteen of us so we ordered 4 extra large Battalion Baconators(Is there anything else on the menu?)that we managed to finish.(It was looking doubtful at first as Dan wasn't pulling his weight. Dan only ate two slices of pizza!)
Next we made our way to the church. After Stockade had their turn on the stage it was time for our boys to recite their passages. Zach recited 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, GeRRald recited Ephesians 6:13-18, Cody recited 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 and Maxwell recited Ephesians 1:3-14. I am so proud of you guys! Good Work!
Chris(The King) and Zane were next on the stage, and it was their job to read out the 2011 Btln Top Ten.
Top Ten ways that you know that you are at Battalion 3739.
10)If it smells like pizza and b.o.
9)If there is a lot of grunting and other many noises.
8)If you are on your way to Castlegar Boston Pizza at midnight.
7)If you are on the bottom of a dog pile.
6)If you are drinking from the Director's Cup.
5)If all you get for winning a belly flop competition is a chocolate bar.
4)If you are being tackled in a non-contact sport.
3)If those around you consider the Bulldog a noble creature.
2)If you are using a bag of frozen peas as an ice pack.
1)If Ryley Heppner is there!
After attempting to watch the pictures it was Howards turn and his focus was the commissioning of Dan Trithardt as his assistant. It is good to see 3739 Alumni making a difference in their world! Congrats Dan, again I am proud of what you are doing!
The second time through we were able to watch the powerpoint and then on to the Ping Pong Final! Zane and Jordan played one of the closest matches that I can ever remember in Btln Ping Pong history! It was a best of five games series.(The games were first to 11.) Jordan took the first game and then Zane took the next two making it 2 games to 1 for Zane. Jordan then took the fourth game forcing a fifth game. Jordan jumped out to an early 5-1 lead but Zane came back to make it 9-9 in the final game! The fifth game ended 11-9 for Zane giving him the win! Congrats to both Zane and Jordan! It was nerve racking to watch and was very good Ping Pong!
Lastly I would like to thank all the Members of the Btln Nation that came out for Brigade Night! It was a good showing and a lot of fun!
