Wel-Met/Summer Camp Games

Not many posts lately, so I'll see if I can get something going. What games do you remember that you only played at Wel-Met? I remember a game we used to play in the bunk where you lobbed a Spalding rubber ball or tennis ball up and tried to get it to bounce on the rafter as many times as you could before it came down. It may even have been a type of baseball game (if the ball bounces once, it's a single, twice, double, etc.). Anyone remember this? Dave Baicker

Yes, Dave, it was a baseball game. I also remember playing "Stretch" which involved throwing a knife into the ground just beyond where your opponent could reach it.

That would be "Rafter ball"

Ok here's one for the parents among ya; How bout a nice game of Stretch - Everyone favorite Knife game, many a holes in the bunks floor from that one. Anyone have any good stretch stories?

Then it's close cousin the one you played with two people facing each other and one person hands behind their back and the other person palms together held out in front, and see if you can get that person to FLINCH. Ouch when ya did!!!

There's another version of Flinch where both people have their hand out in front of them, one palms up, the other palms down (resting on the upward palms). Either by just flipping their hand over or crossing over, the upward facing palms person was to slap the opponent. My 9 yo nephew enjoys playing both versions.
