There is the server, someone who stands toward the back of his or her half of the court, throws the ball in the air and hits it to fly over the net. If you’re good at tennis, I imagine you’re perfect for this job.
If I’m good enough to compete with the others who are already competing, then that’s one thing. Inventing a new weight class just so I can be included and not get my feelings hurt is quite another.
If you have a boat, just next to the jetty is where you can launch it. There is no official boat ramp at the present, but the sand is rock hard most of the time. There is also a tractor there to hire if you have a big boat and are not too confident in your car! There are some truly amazing places to visit if you have a boat, with reef systems running everywhere. There are also 14 different ship wrecks that you can visit and dive on. A lot of large fish are caught in Lancelin, both on the shore or off a boat; don’t be shy on the fishing!
Another good activity is to make an interactive story about an ant. Have your students sit in a circle. Have the first student start the story by telling two sentences, then continue with the next student until you get to the last student whom ends the story.
Let’s lower the basketball hoop for short people. Short guys on the volleyball positions should be given stilts. Heavy guys like me could play half-court basketball. Tall people have to wear weight belts so they can’t jump as high.
Laurel Group (.5 mile): This trail starts near the fee station and is moderately difficult. It is part of three other connecting trails (Coquina and Hilltop) and takes hikers through a rugged terrain not expected in the lowlands of South Carolina. With Mountain Laurel and Red Cedar draped in Spanish Moss, giant Oaks and Dogwood trees, hikers will get a flair of both the mountains and the lowlands. Deer, opossum, squirrels as well as a wide variety of birds are often seen along this trail. The Laurel Group trail ends and hikers can either turn around and go back, or choose the Coquina trail or Hilltop Trail. From the point where the Laurel trail ends (.5 mile) the Coquina trail will be at least a three-quarters mile walk either way and the Hilltop trail adds another .5 mile.
Hilltop (.5 mile plus at least .5 mile on connecting trails): A half-mile trail that can only be reached from Laurel or Coquina trails, this moderately difficult “out-and-back” path requires a good deal of climbing in addition to at least a half-mile hike on one of the other trails to reach it. A mountain-like atmosphere with plenty of vegetation such as Galax and Mountain Laurel will be enjoyed by hikers.
