Halfway Party & BULKELEY’s Got Talent

The Wolfpack took part in a steel beach picnic on the flight deck Sunday afternoon, as part of the halfway party. The ERSS team grilled barbeque ribs, hamburgers, and sausages and Culinary Specialists prepared side dishes including macaroni salad, beans, and potato salad. MWR organized “BULKELEY’s Got Talent,” a showcase of five contestants and their unique talents. QM3 Meulemans was the MC for the event and the judges included our Commanding Officer, CDR Anderson, LTJG McAbee, and “Jackie Moon” (from the hit movie “Semi Pro”).

The talent show kicked off with Iron Skillet, with ET3 Horrell, GM3 Lee, and AE1 Wilke on guitars. LTJG Severson performed for the crew on the bagpipes. GSM2 Delostrinos created a contemporary bellydance routine, and CSSN Menefee and OSSN Yarborough performed a hip-hop dance and freestyle, respectively. Last, but certainly not least, the Omegas, a dance group performed consisting of OS1 Hill, QM2 Hadley, IC2 Toomalatai, IC3 Cheatham, ET3 Evans, LS3 Gadsden, LSSN Hughes, and CTRSA Reese. After the judges picked the top 3 in a tight vote, crew applause gave the Omegas the trophy with Iron Skillet in 2nd and LTJG Severson taking 3rd. Our Supply Officer, LT Quenemoen, caught the first fish of the deployment. The Wolfpack winded down the afternoon with memories of the first half of deployment and goals for the second half of deployment.
