DXC Hosts Family Fun Day at Dayton Leadership Academy

DAYTON -- The winter has been a rugged one and, now that it’s Spring, it’s time to get out and enjoy the good weather with our loved ones. To help families do just that, the Dayton Christian Center (DXC) is holding a Family Fun Day on Friday, May 15.

Spinning for Fun

On the ocean's edge in SF in the 50's, inside Playland, where screaming children would race to get on the spinning disk. Topped with highly polished hardwood, surrounded by padded walls, the name of the game was to keep from getting flung against the wall as the disk increased speed. The best spot and longest ride went to those in the precise center of the thing. Of course those kids were so dizzy they'd take two steps and fall down. But, when the dizziness went away they'd get right back on.

Staying in the center, spinning faster, smashing into padded walls, too dizzy to stand, and all the while laughing until it hurt. Must be an election year.
