The Seventh Fleet Olympics was held on Saturday, August 21 in Layton, Utah.  We had the opportunity to have fun with members of our Star Trek family from the USS Atlantis, USS Kelly, USS Rendezvous and USS Retributor.  A lot of Ticonderoga members walked away with medals, and more importantly more friendships.  We hope to post the results very soon.  What events did you guys like the most at the Olympics?

Seventh Fleet Olympic Schedule

As requested, here is the schedule for the upcoming Seventh Fleet Olympics.  This fleet wide event will be held on Saturday, August 21 at the Chapel Park (152 South 900 East) in Layton and will be hosted by the USS Retributor.  I would recommend arriving early to sign up for the entries that you wish to participate in.  I’m not certain if the number of slots are limited.

The events are divided into three categories.  Cadet (younger crewmembers), Ship (low active) and Away Team (very active).  This way there are events for everyone to medal in.  Some are team based, some are individual based.

Independence Day Road Trip

So for the month of July the Acting Captain of the USS Ticonderoga will be Lt. Dave Stock.  The Acting Captain program was set up to give Ticonderoga Crewmembers experience in leadership and command.   For our activity in July, we will be taking a road trip over the Independence Day weekend.  Acting Captain Stock has beachfront property at Bear Lake (with all of the amenities such as fire-pits, plumbing, etc.) and has invited anyone from the Seventh Fleet to join us for camping and relaxing.  We haven’t had a USS Ticonderoga campout in about 4-5 years.  This beachfront property is the same location that the 2004 Seventh Fleet Olympics was held.  We will have fireworks, swimming, group breakfast and a Shisk-ka-Bob BBQ.  There is also a 4th of July Parade at a small town nearby and a cave we can visit as well.  If you are interested in going, contact the Captain ASAP.

Upcoming USS Ticonderoga June Activity

Friends and family of the USS Ticonderoga will be getting together on Saturday, June 19th.  We will be meeting at Noon at Island View Park in Clearfield (address: 1800 South Main St).  Bring your own lunch for you and your family.  When we are done eating we will be holding a practice for the upcoming Seventh Fleet Olympics.  There is a playground next to the pavilion for the kids to play at while we are eating and having fun.  This event is open to anyone so feel free to bring your friends.
