|The game begins. The goals were a lot farther apart than the photo makes it look.|
The Blongo Balls went up, but they did not come down.
Since they were bright orange they could be seen high in the tree. It was reminiscent of Charlie Brown and the kite-eating tree!
|Where'd they go?|
Next they tried Mike's solution. He brought out an assortment of large balls, which the guys took turns tossing up into the tree. They got plenty of exercise heaving those balls into the tree, but the tree won.
Finally, the very agile Ben climbed the tree. From his perch in the tree he was able to toss one of the balls into the limb holding the Blongos, which were shaken free and fell to the ground.
I think the retrieval of the Blongo Balls was probably more fun for the guys than even the game!
