Final Planning Meeting for the Shorabak Garrison Swim and Water Polo Team

Throughout the week, Colonel Safi was telling everyone on the base about the team that he was putting together. Upon my arrival to the meeting, Colonel Safi asked if he could be on the team. I told Colonel Safi that if he was going to be at practice every day, he could participate. He said that was not possible. I did tell him that since he was the Garrison Commander and it was his team, that he could be in the team photo. This made him very excited as he has been bragging to the Ministry of Defense about all of this.

Colonel Safi said he will have everything set for Saturday. He will have the pipe fixed (Which is supposedly being fixed today), water in the pool, and a team to train. I was very happy with this and look forward to Saturday.

We sat and drank tea, spoke about the team, about Bugs Bunny cartoons which were playing on the television in his office, and about the common people that we knew. As always, Hakim did an outstanding translating as always. I cannot wait until Saturday.
