Red and White Announcement 2019!! July 20, 2019 We had an incredible Red and White Announcement this week! On Wednesday night at dinner, Carmen realized that her wedding ring was missing! She freaked out in the mess hall (as anyone would) and left the meal to go looking for it. Frankie left soon after to help her, as well as some of our counselors. During General that day she had been playing soccer in the middle of the field, so she figured that’s where it would have to be! Right after dinner, the campers came out and started to help her look. Even with every single camper and counselor in the field, we could not find it! Next, Carmen remembered that she was on the tennis courts earlier that day. She asked everyone to go up there and search. Upon getting to the tennis courts, they were covered with a bunch of red and white rings! Each ring had a girl’s name on it, and it’s color represented her assigned team! After that, the camp excitedly sat down on the tennis courts and heard the announcement of captains for Red and White 2019!! To celebrate the announcement, the girls competed in their new little teams in a couple rounds of Team Competition! The Red and White announcement was such a memorable and special evening at CMFG! At Marimeta, we switch up the red and white teams randomly every summer. This means that each summer the girls have no idea which team they’re going to be on. We believe this makes the announcement more exciting, and ensures that long term conflict or harsh competitiveness does not build between the girls.
