A Look Back at the Laser Tag Overnight

Laser Tag Overnight for Senior USY, January 15th - 16th

A couple of weeks ago was our Laser Tag Lock-in at the Lazer Zone in Marlborough! It was so much fun. Everyone that went enjoyed it a lot. We all had a good time meeting with Sharon USY and Temple Israel of Natick USY. It was a great event and I can't wait to do it again next year!! I met a ton of new people from the other chapters. We played Laser Tag, did a bungee run, and played in the arcade. We got to do this for about 4 hours!!! We loved playing laser tag in teams, which was different. Most of us didn't get a lot of sleep though, we were too busy talking during quiet hours. We even brought back a dart board and a cool purple alien for the TRUSY lounge we won from the arcade games! Hope to see you all soon.

A Look Back at Ice Skating at Frog Pond

Ice Skating at Frog Pond, January 21st

It's your favorite Communications VP (besides Jack), Ninja Noah!  So here's the good news: I got to see a lot of you at ice skating on January 21st when we went to Frog Pond in Boston.  Even though it was 17 degrees out, it was the best time I have ever had skating!  Of course that was my first time ever, but still.  Our chapter has a very skillful supply of skaters!  While yes, there were plenty of times where many of us fell, overrall we were pretty good. There really is nothing like sliding along on ice with some sharp blades strapped to your feet.  It was totally worth all the time spent sitting on the train, especially because of the amazing conversations we got to have about what it means to be in USY (the fun parts of it).

Now, here's the bad news: not all of you were there!  As much as I loved the time I spent with people that did attend, I'm sure it would have been even better if more people came!  Let's try to do that for next time, OK? Great.  See you then.

A Look Back at Freshman Kinnus

Its one of your favorite Communications VP's, Ninja Noah Carlen!  I hope everyone is enjoying USY this year, but if not, then get psyched for Sky Zone!  Its coming up this weekend, and if you're reading this, then I better see you there!

Anyway, I just got back from Freshman Kinnus the other day, and it was awesome!  I met so many new people from around the region and made some great friends.  We spent the weekend bonding with each other. We stayed with host families for Friday night, and not only were my "roommates" fun, but the host family was cool too. They had two Israeli dogs that only spoke Hebrew (I learned some commands). Saturday night we went rollerblading (which I'm not very good at) and laser tag; they were both very fun. It's experiences like this that I'll never forget, and look forward to others like it!

A Look Back at SkyZone

trusy group 2

Hey TRUSY!  Its Noah Carlen, with an update on current events.  For those of you who didn't go to Skyzone, it was awesome!  We played some really intense games of trampoline dodgeball.  You will never know what it's like to throw and dodge balls in a world of only jumping until you've tried it.  And best of all, this wasn't just TRUSY, because we combined with Temple Aliyah's USY chapter.  Getting to meet new people and see my friends from past regional events was great.  Don't worry, though, you can still redeem yourselves by coming to future events.  There's always more fun with more people, so lets try to make that happen!  Happy Hannukah!!!

A Look Back at the Leadership Convention

Leadership Convention was great, the nine board members who attended had an amazing time and I personally learned a lot. We went to Camp Ramah in Palmer MA. I never realized how fun and awesome regional events can be! Camp Ramah is sooo nice. We prayed and learned about leading our chapter members (You!). We came up with a TON of new events that we can't wait to bring to the chapter. The region has plenty more events in the future and it isn't to late to sign for international convention or summer programs! If you are on board next year I guarantee that you will have an Awesome time at leadership! I can't wait to see all you TRUSY'ers at future events!
