How fun is this! Battle Ball was a first time experience for Jeff, John and Jarrod and they had a blast!
The Savannah Christian's Children's Ministry, the Elevate team invited all its volunteers out for an evening of fun, fellowship, a picnic and Battle Ball at Forsythe Park in downtown Savannah one evening in late July. We had never experienced Battle Ball and while John and Jarrod were hesitant at first, and held back for a little while, Jeff was not and jumped right in to the action.
We brought a picnic dinner of fried chicken, chips and fresh peaches for dessert. After we ate our scrumptious fare, Jeff plunged into the wild, crazy, tiring, and sweaty action of Battle Ball. He had a blast! Our neighbors, the Cranes, were there so Jeff had an ongoing battle with Davis before John got into the action. No question John was the biggest battle ball challenger on the field and all the kids were a riot brushing against him and with a little tap John would send the kids' balls rollin' over sometimes a couple times with the kids getting back up and coming back for more. It was a hoot to watch from the sidelines.
Finally, Jarrod got into the action and he and John tag teamed against their dad. Although Jeff put up a tough fight, two 260 pound guys against one 220 pound guy is no match - they sent him rolling. Oooh! POW! BAM!...and I'm roaring on the sidelines.
