Kajabe Can Can

November 11, 20140 Comments

Have you ever gone to an event where everyone knows about what’s going on except you?  That’s how I felt last Friday night when we went to cover aerials for a church event at 1BL in Long Beach. They were holding a “Kajabe Can Can” tournament… “a what?!” — that was me. Turns out this is a ancient game that lots of people knew about. Just not me. Here’s the scoop:

Usually played outdoors or in a big room, but could be played in a smaller facility with smaller groups.

The participants get into a circle around the trash can and hold hands. If a player touches the trash can in any way, they are out. Also, if players break their grip on one another, they are both out. Play pauses after an elimination, giving a much-needed time for players to re-firm their hand-holds.

The game is pretty intense, and I’m not entirely sure how tempers don’t flare, but the refs and all the people organizing kept is really loose so I think that helped a lot.  Looked like a lot of fun!  But not as fun as flying over it!

This was the most we’ve flown over people… like ever.  So we make sure we gave the copter some good testing before flight.  Once we were confident in it, we took to the skies.  And you see the result above.  It was a great night!

– Homemade Hexacopter (Rusty/aglhobbies frame)

Here's spackletoe's biographical information for your reading pleasure. I like copters. Told you it wasn't very long. Oh.. wait, no I didn't. Sorry about that. I'm sure you didn't see the end coming like that. It was untimely, even. Ahh geez, now I feel the need to say more. I haven't mentioned monkeys yet. They're fun. Cya later!
