End of Summer Billiards Trip


By Fariba

Our SIPS end of summer trip was to BQE Billiards. SIPS is the coed leadership group for rising high school Seniors. For most of us, this was our first time playing pool. At first, I could barely maneuver the pool stick properly to get a strong hit. But after three hours of practicing, I definitely got the hang of it. My friends and I played game after game, and the excitement never seemed to go away. As we lost and won several games, we all figured that billiards was now our favorite game. We also played air hockey and ping-pong which was very enjoyable but, I really loved playing pool. Furthermore, the food was great. We had hot wings, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and fries. 

Overall, the trip was very enjoyable mainly because it was with some of the best people that I've ever met. We all had become great friends after spending six weeks with each other in the SIPS program at SAYA. This trip for the last day of the program was a great way to say goodbye for the summer. We had so much fun and I know that I definitely want to go back at some point.
