Last Friday’s Headmaster’s Day (temporarily renamed “Sav Frieze Day” this year, having been dedicated to the memory of a beloved friend to Cardigan—a long-serving trustee and past parent) was, in short, a blast. No doubt you are eager to hear more about (better yet: see more pictures of) the boys’ Friday fun, and so we are here to indulge!
Thanks to the thoughtful planning of Mr. Hannis
(our “dean of fun”) and the supervision of his colleagues, the boys had an opportunity in the morning to play in the Third Annual J. Dudley Clark Doubles Tournament (p.s. this year’s winners were seniors Agustin Cattoretti
and Will Appleton
) or use any of the open facilities (the student center, gym, weight room, etc.). The afternoon meant a “carnival lunch” (served on the Rymer
Patio outside the Commons!), a 3-vs.-3 soccer tournament on the upper tennis courts (which later also became a street hockey venue), waterfront play, (homemade) “slip’n’slide” action on the Back 40 hill, and all kinds of fun on numerous inflatable games/structures. Ice cream and cotton candy were later served, and a Dorm Olympics competition in the form of an ice cream bar–eating contest (won by Joey Mayer ’14,
of Funnell dormitory
and Mr. Langetieg
of Brewster I
) rounded out the excitement. Click HERE to see photos of a whole lotta fun!
