This year marked some fantastic additions to the volunteer team (BlueShirts) of The 20 Leadership Camp. It was the first true class of players to go from campers to volunteers. We have had a few make the transition, like Robin and Barbara, but this year felt different. Whether its simply time or something more tangible will never be known, but these BlueShirts are a special bunch that have now experienced 20 Camp on a whole new level. Other rookies were free agents who have never played in the farm system of The 20. However they made the roster, each certainly did their part. That is how I would like to thank these players; by noting the role each played at camp.
“If you have 5 Michael Jordans on the court, you will lose.”
The 20 Leadership Camp is a team and we all have parts to play. Thank you BlueShirts for playing your part. We are one body made up of many parts. It takes each of us fulfilling our role to accomplish the vision. You are all simply astounding leaders, and I am honored to serve with you. Your willingness and faithfulness are incredible. This camp could never happen without you.

Shae – Assist Machine – learning the playbook on the fly, she did everything asked of her, I often threw her into random situations, she never said no or was shaken

Colton – Big Upside – led his group (and the whole group) many times in fantastic ways, all around great player with multiple skill set, needs work on his bass
