Bolton's prom-goers fought sleep as they enjoyed activities

(Editor's Note: Bolton Central's recent post-prom party was a success, with the community working together to provide fun and safe activities. The Bolton Parent-Teacher Organization organized the event, based on the generous sponsorship of a large number of businesses, organizations and individuals in Bolton. Sixty-two students attended the event, and school officials said they were encouraged by the enthusiasm and support the students demonstrated.. Laser Tag, go-carts, bumper cars and a rock-climbing wall were among the many activities available to students at the party's headquarters, Adventure Racing of Queensbury.

A variety of prizes were raffled off, including a grand prize of a 27" flat-screen television. After the party, students were bussed back to the Bolton Firehouse where a pancake breakfast was served by the Fire Company's Ladies Auxiliary. BCS Junior Matt Peterson wrote the following narrative on his perspective of the evening.)

BOLTON LANDING - Arriving at Adventure Racing in Queensbury, soon after much dancing and socializing at the Sagamore Resort, Bolton prom-goers were unsure as to how actively they'd would be spending the next six hours. An hour or so later, laser tag, go-karts, and bumper cars began to become a somewhat repetitive process when, just in time, the availability of the rock wall provided a new frontier available for our entertainment. Thanks to the free pizza, sodas and cookies, we were all wired just enough to make it to 4 a.m. with minimum go-kart time lost to sleep, which was ever more alluring as each hour passed. The incentive of free raffle prizes given out at the end of the party also managed to keep many people on their feet, whether they were fully conscious or not. Although we were kept entertained, at the end of the party, we all indeed desired one thing that could not come fast enough: sleep.
