"We'll keep on fighting 'til the end..."

I can't be sure, but there's definitely a chance that a record was broken in Kuji over the weekend:

The most foreigners this place has seen at one time!

We had a big group of ALT friends (around 30) and some Japanese friends come up for our very own Sports Day, just like all the schools here have. I had a lot of Kuji pride, and a great time hosting friends in my apartment and showing off my town.

We had four teams compete in the afternoon events. Just like at the schools, we did some fun relays...

Like run with a ball in between you and your partner.

Two people from each team competed in "the cardboard box game." The point of the game was to bend over and pick up a box with your mouth. After each round, the box was ripped shorter and shorter, until it was just a piece of cardboard.

It was quite entertaining to watch...

Go Bruce!

Success! Well done, Zuto. He made it look easy!

The final round...

...was intense!

In addition to the wacky competitions, we also *played soccer and whiffle ball.

* or in some cases, attempted to play

YEAH TEAM YELLOW!! (I no longer have much of a voice due to screaming. And from singing my heart out at karaoke later on that night.)

Chillin' out on the playground in between events.

It was really great hanging out with everyone, and I'm looking forward to the next big ALT gathering -- the sayonara party in July.
