Read about Fall Kallah / Kamp Kadima 2012! Fall Kallah, SWUSY’s first large-scale convention of the 2012-2013 year, was, as they say, a complete success! Taking place from November 16-18 at Camp Young Judea in Wimgerly, TX, the theme of Retro Video Games made for great programs, decorations, prizes, and a healthy dose of nostalgia. Convention started with a bang as the tri-chairs, Emily Derozier, Benjy Karten, and Rachel Steiner, along with the Regional Executive Board performed a live-action video game medley. On Friday night, USYers bundled up and headed outside for a giant game of human Pacman – glowstick style! Shabbat began with three service options which caught the eye of every USYer in attendance, and Saturday night culminated with human Duck Hunt, Pong, and a ragin’ dance. Annual Fall Kallah senior auction raised over $1,200, and the seniors had as much fun redeeming their degrading and silly auction items as the rest of the USYers and Kadimanicks did buying them – and giving to Hurricane Sandy Relief and cancer research. “SA/TO rocks,” Senior Auction MC Gabby Kasner said. The Kadimanicks who attended Kamp Kadima didn’t miss out on all the fun, though! These youngsters rocked a video-game obstacle course and mastered the art of the pogo stick. They even tried their hand at acting in special performances of the parsha. Fall Kallah 2012 is a convention to remember, and everyone is buzzing with excitement for the next SWUSY masterpiece-of-a-convention.
