If there are more advanced members in the class, I will delve into isolations and stalls with them & go back and forth between the groups.

 

Kebunny’s Kersplash Kannonball Kontest
Where: Pool area 3

When: 1pm
Do you got your swim trunks, and your flippy floppies… cuz it’s about that time!  At pm on Saturday, yours truly is hosting an event you simply should not miss, Kebunny’s Kersplash Kannonball Kontest.  Beat the heat of the midday sun by plunging yourself into BangaRoc’s beautiful and gigantic lake, over and over and over.  This contest will take place aboard a giant floating trampoline, to add a little extra spring to your bounce.  The event will be judged by a panel of cannonball professionals, who will be scoring on three different categories.  Let’s meet our judges:

Scoring you on size of splash is your favorite miniature cephalopd, Kristie Abel!  Kristie Abel holds three Cannonball World Cup gold medals, most recently during last year’s tournament.   Next to Kristie, scoring you on water entry, please welcome Dinah Myott.  Don’t let her size fool you, Dinah is a master of clean water entry and her record of a 9.5, from a height of 35,000 feet is still legendary and remains unchallenged to this day!  Finally, judging on style and technique is your friendly neighborhood rabbit… me!  Having spent the last two summer Olympics on the USA Cannonball team, I will be looking for your most impressive flips, twists and whatever impressive tricks you may have up your sleeve! I wanna see you throw caution to the wind and get nasty after your launch from the trampoline and you soar through the air! This is a single elimination, standard bracket, 1 vs 1 at a time format.
