Hundreds of people hurled fake snowballs at others who were tasked with catching them before aiming their pitch at Darth Vader in a church. Let's pause to recognize the awesomeness of that last statement..................yes, that did happen. It sounds like a one of those odd dreams complete with symbolism and subconscious thoughts that only a seasoned psychologist could understand... or make up. But it was just another Sunday at Grace Community Church with a Pastor that has a knack for thinking of interesting ways to make a point. His point was team work today, and I really can't say much more than that (forgive me Lord). I was somewhat distracted from the sermon as I was attempting to figure out a good spot to take shots, while anticipating what the audience had not a clue what was coming. Pastor John Slye split the attendees up into two groups (split down the middle of the church, with those in the back rows tasked with throwing fake snow balls at the front row so they could then attempt to knock down their assigned Sith lord. Yes, each side was given their own Darth Vador Cardboard cut out target. Imagine a pastor asking his assistant to make that order with no context.
Getting this particular shot was not an easy task, given that the activity lasted just over 2 minutes, as the attendees showed Vader no mercy. I did have enough time to try and get fancy with a shot in the center of the auditorium. The fact that I did not use that shot here should probably tell you enough about my success with that mission. It would be the attendees on the left side of the room that would be victorious, although I did get hit by a few strays during their assault. The champions were given twinkies- correction they were shot with twinkies propelled from a T-shirt cannon. Let's pause to recognize the awesomeness of that last statement...................... Yes, that did happen.
