Paddleton 2012

Saturday morning Elliot participated in Midland Public Schools’ paddleton tournament along with ~ 60 (?) other 5th grade boys.  Paddleton is like badminton except you use a wooden paddle instead of a stringed racquet.  A bunch of his friends from Carpenter Street school participated too, and they all did well…representing four out of the top six and three out of the top four (including the champion and runner-up).    Elliot defeated his friend (and basketball teammate) Kyle to win the tournament.

Here is some video from several of his matches leading up to the championship (and some video of his pals playing too):

Here are some photos (the last one is Elliot and Finn posing with their gym teacher Mr. Welter):
