This evening we went to watch Rick and Janice’s grandson Jacob playing competitive hockey for the Greensboro team at the Ice House, Greensboro, about 30 miles east of Winston-Salem.

This was Jacob’s second competitive match of the day and he was in fine form, contributing to a decisive 5-0 win against the Charlotte Junior Checkers team from Charlotte, North Carolina.

Here are some photos Rick took of Jacob in action.

As well as wanting to have photos of Jacob in action, Rick also wanted to practice his ability to take photographs with the impression of fast movement in a still frame:

After the hockey we called into a new store called Field & Stream selling clothes and equipment for outdoor hunting and sport.

Here are some photos of me strutting my stuff whilst being threatened by some of the big wild animals looking to get their own back:
