Adventures at the EWU Football Game

Happy Friday!

Last Saturday, we went to a football game at Eastern Washington University.  Many of you came and supported the Eagles in their first win of the season.  Over 40 students and teachers came to EWU, and even though some of us did not understand the rules of football, everyone had a great time!

Thank you for coming, and I am looking forward to our next adventure very soon!

Thursday Activity Day – Rain or Shine!

Greetings everyone!  It looks like October is going to be a little rainy, but do not worry!  The Thursday activity day is still on!  If it is too rainy and we cannot go outside, we will have a lot of fun activities planned inside.  There will be great games to play, prizes to win, and English discussion to be had.  So please come and enjoy all the fun!

WHERE: Building 50


WHAT: Sunny – Outdoor activities   Rain – Indoor fun and games

I look forward to seeing everyone there!  My challenge still stands.  If you can beat me in Lasso Golf (and be the first person in the world to do so!!!), you will win a special prize!

Bowling tomorrow night!

Hey everybody! Do you know the best way to celebrate being done with midterm exams? Bowling, of course! Tomorrow night, we will be bowling at North Bowl, 125 West Sinto Avenue. Bring a bit of spending money, because it’s a 2 dollar shoe rental and 2 dollars a game. There are also food and drinks available. The best way to get there is to take the 27 bus from the Plaza to Washington and Sinto, then walk two blocks East. We’ll start bowling at 7:00 PM. Hope to see you all there!
