lau $ II game Three short Donkey Basketball games were held at North Mason High School the evening of December 21 amid almost continuous laughter from the audience as players fell off their 4qegged partners or failed in mighty efforts to make the animals move when they wanted them to. The first game was played between members of the Belfair Fire Department vs. members of the North Mason school faculty. The faculty was victorious. A second game saw girls from the GAA teamed against boys from the Lettermen's Club with the girls defeating the boys. A one-inning (No, that's baseball).., a one-period (?) game between the two victors ended the night's entertainment wherein the girls held their winning streak and bested the faculty. Awards were not given by the Letterman's Club, sponsor of the event, but if they had, the "outstanding player" award would no doubt have gone to the donkey who seemed to have a phobia about letting anyone on its back. The players assigned to that animal must have ended up with the most bruises and sore spots the n~xt day. S~ond place would probably have gone to the tiniest aaaimal, the little gray c[,~ukoy who, wrlen he made up his mind that he wanted to stay right where he was, couldn't be budged, pushed or pulled without a player straining every muscle in his or her body. It would have been easier to pick him up and move him but maybe that was against the rules of the game. There may have been a rule that the 4-legged players had to carry the 2-legged ones, not vice-versa. Local residents who missed the event missed a lot of fun and laughs.
