ORLEANSâ€“The Annual Ranger Give & Go Basketball Camp is in full swing at the Don Harter Memorial Gymnasium.
The camp is run by the Lady Rangers head coach Mark Tinker, and has been going steady for nearly a decade.
"I started the camp when I took over the Varsity program here because I felt we needed something for the feeder program and I up and started it."
The camp is open to both boys and girls, and is split into two age groups; Campers in grades 3 through 5 attend in the morning and 6 through 8 in the afternoon.
It has been a busy summer at Dunlaveyâ€™s Black Belt Academy, owned and operated by 7th Don Master Rick Dunlavey â€“ highest ranking Master in the Northeast Kingdom. More than 40 of his Tae Kwon Do students participated in the Derby 4th of July Parade. The float, provided and driven by Gosselin Water Wells, held a host of Dragons (mostly aged 3-6) while the Tigers, adult students and family members, marched alongside. The students wowed the crowd with Kibon One throughout the route. Later in July, the school moved to a new location at 292 Shattuck Hill Road in Derby.
Thought you were competing only in a Triathlon? Wrong. We had an open water swim going on and we had some very, very strong swimming going on in Lake Seymour.
We may not have had the wherewithal to recognize you at the Award Ceremony, (our woodal machine broke down and we didnâ€™t have the times available yesterday afternoon). But all of you Aqua and Ollie and Swim Only participants were also in a swim competition (whether you knew it or not), and we are proud to announce the winners of the 3.5 mile Seymour Swim AND the 1.75 mile Seymour Swim.
