The Spirit of '76 started this summer as Camp Ranger's Lower Seniors had their own celebration. The ingredients were all here: the most incredible combination of campers ever to come down Ranger Road, dedicated counselors and a competitive fire that knew no boundaries.

Captain Korder's Raiders were crowd pleasers where ever they went. Before an SRO parents weekend audience the Lower Seniors put on the show Finian's Rainbow at the Ranger Playhouse. "On that great come and get it day", Matty Barkoff recorded his third Gold Album for Capitol Records, Wayne Olan proved that Leprechauns can kiss under "that old devil moon" and Mike Berman showed that crispies do scuzzle mooses.

"We're not going to take it, never did, and never will", was the cry for our Intercamp games. The 28 and 9 record reflected the practice and hard work during the summer. A 10-0 hoops record highlighted this winning season, my complements to both players and coaches.

League play was exciting and competitive, The Teaneck Highwaymen fought for the hoop title and scoring crown. Can KILLER dunk, how good is Rocker, can Feldman make a foul shot and will Tesch win a game were the unanswered questions. The Big Red Machine had spring training in Oceanside, which was their formula for a second straight pennant. Valley Streamers dominated the new game in tow n -SOCCER. Gavin Cristie and Myles Davis went head to head in some classic soccer matches. Hockey League saw scoring records fall as Mue Pierre Mole led the way.

I would like to thank all the lower senior counselors Jackie the Lip, Lars the Volleyball specialist, Monopoly Commissioner Malin, Mutt the mountain climber and Jan the knife thrower for a tremendous job.
