NC State-wide POOL(ee) function
So yesterday we had our state wide POOL(ee) function here in North Carolina. It was a great day, the sun was out (and I got burnt), and we had a lot of fun. There was over 450 POOL(ee)'s that showed up. There was also a male and female drill instructor from Parris Island that came.
We had the dizzy izzy (which i participated in), the ammo-can run, Pull up contest (did 16), crunch relay, tug of war, moment of truth, bowling ball toss, then we had chow (MRE's) and finally the awards ceremony.
It was really motivating getting out there with all those people and getting all pumped up.
I have less than 2 months and Im so ready to go!!
edit: I was also wondering how many POOL(ee)'s on this forum where at the event yesterday.

A recruiter told me once that even though i'm not DEP'd in, I could go to the functions... Is that true? I'd love to attend one, but since i'm at a Military school as it is, my schedule isn't exactly flexible... I live in NC as well so it would have been fun i'm sure

I beleive you can. I brought a friend to our central POOL(ee) function and everyone welcomed them. I think its good for you to go to them before you DEP in. I went to them b4 I DEPed in and I loved it. It made me want to join more! But I dont see why you wouldnt be aloud too?!?

I was at the NC poolee function also, DMDENIKE. I'm guessing you are with RSS Fayetteville? I'm with RSS Garner (tug-o-war winners). I had a blast and like you, also got burnt. Had a great time and it made me laugh inside when the female DI lost her voice and smiled about it, because I'm sure it'll be the last time we ever see a DI smile! I also enjoyed listening to the Sergeant Major speak. Real moto.

Yeah, Baker is a cool kid. I don't really know him that well, but he seems like a squared away guy. I don't know Charles, but I'm sure if I saw him I'd recognize him. Any news on when the next function is? Either way, good luck to you and God bless.

We have our state wide the 25th-26th at Fort Knox in Kentucky, im somewhat nervous but excited at the same time. Some DI's from Parris Island will be there.

you can attend the functions, i did before i DEP'd in. It just helps you get ready more and really have fun, because for now you don't feel like you have to get better, now you can just breathe. But after you DEP in, you had better start to show up.
