Michael Phelps and Little Boomer’s Instagram Inspires First Virtual Reality Monument

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Artist Daniel Edwards will unveil what he believes is the First Virtual Reality Monument, one that honors Michael Phelps's legacies as Olympian and father, featuring new son Boomer. Unveiling of The First Virtual Reality Monument is scheduled for November at Irv Art gallery in Indianapolis, announces Cory Allen Contemporary Art.

Through specialized headgear, viewers can interact with the larger-than-life Olympian. The First Virtual Reality Monument features Michael Phelps, clad in speedos and USA-emboldened-swim cap, standing steadfastly akimbo with feet planted shoulder-width on an Olympic-style podium. His chin is up with a determined gaze reminiscent of recent Phelps memes. His son Boomer, supported by a child harness across Dad's chest in place of a gold medal, holds open arms as if sweetly welcoming his auspicious future.

"I intended to monumentalize Michael Phelps's athletic dominance and prevalence over inner-demons," Edwards says. "Contrasting Ryan Lochte's unfortunate actions in Rio, I find it especially important to commemorate Phelps's growth and maturity."

Boomer Phelps, the cute three-month-old 'mascot' of the Rio games, was present as his father won six medals. "I don't recall the emergence of such an adorable breakout star as baby Boomer at the Olympics before," added Edwards. "All of the pics on Boomer's Instagram page provided plenty of inspiration for his portrait."

"Ryan Lochte's misbehavior undermines the spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play of the Olympics, placing more necessity to remember Phelps's Olympic-sized strides," said the artist's spokesman Cory Allen. "But after 23 gold medals in five Olympic Games, Phelps's greatest legacy may indeed be son Boomer, as portrayed by Daniel."

Daniel Edwards has been sculpting Olympic Gold Medalists for over 20 years. Coca-Cola, BMW, and United Way sponsored his Olympic portrait exhibit that followed the torch relay to selected cities and exhibited in the Olympic Village in Atlanta in 1996. His portraits are in the permanent collections of the National Art Museum of Sport and New York Athletic Club.

The "First Virtual Reality Monument" will open to the public at Irv Art at 206 South Audubon Road in Indianapolis in November. For more information contact Cory Allen at 323-393-3115 or visit http://www.cacanet.com.

Camp Miramichee Celebrates 100th Anniversary Summer Haven for Girls From 1916 to 1989

HARDY, Ark. -- As many as 100 former YWCA Camp Miramichee campers will gather at the site of their old camp September 16-18, 2016, to celebrate the venerable summer girls camp's 100th birthday, the Camp Miramichee Reunion committee announced today.

Generations of young women and girls from Memphis and the Mississippi and Arkansas Deltas attended Camp Miramichee in Hardy, Arkansas, from 1916 until it closed in 1989.

On the same weekend in Hardy, former Boy Scouts will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Kia Kima and the community of Cherokee Village will also celebrate its century mark. Some joint events are planned as part of this recognition of a century of camping in Hardy.

Camp Miramichee was founded in 1916 as a retreat for working girls. It maintained its role as a haven for working girls and their families through World War II, but in the 1940s also began to offer a program for younger girls.

By the 1950s Camp Miramichee was wholly devoted to providing leadership and athletic opportunities for girls 10 through 18, with canoeing, swimming, crafts, archery and other activities, as well the chance to flirt with the Boy Scouts.

In the 1970s because of increased development in Hardy, the YWCA moved the camp to a larger site farther up the South Fork of Spring River where it re-opened in 1979. A Christmas Eve tornado outbreak in 1982 destroyed the new camp. Undaunted, campers and staff pitched in to rebuild Camp Miramichee in time for the 1983 season.

In 1989 skyrocketing liability insurance rates forced the camp to close. However, in 2005 former campers began to reconnect and have held annual summer reunions in Hardy every year since, complete with white-water canoe trips and Indian dances.

For more information, see http://campmiramichee.org/ or contact Lyda Phillips: lydap@hotmail.com / 301-518-7538. Vintage and current photographs are available upon request.

TeamSnap, a mobile and web service used by almost a million and a half players, parents and coaches to manage sports teams and leagues, reported that teams in virtually every country are now using its online team management tools. TeamSnap now has 100,000 teams across 176 countries, representing virtually every nation on the globe.

Teams use TeamSnap for more than 100 different sports (and non-sport groups) ranging from soccer to sailing to cricket to rugby.

"We love the ability to program our club's training schedule into TeamSnap and track on the web and on our phones who can and cannot attend practices," said Gina Miller, President of the Lamma Outrigger Canoe Club (LOCC). The LOCC was founded in 2006 and is based out of Tai Wan To Beach in Yung Shue Wan on Lamma Island (Hong Kong). "As the club has grown, we had to migrate from email, paper and spreadsheets to a modern online team platform like TeamSnap."

Olivier Dautrebande, head of La Rasante field hockey club in Belgium, said, "Our club has been around since 1901, but we try to be as efficient as possible by using the latest technology. With more than 60 teams involved each season in the Belgian championship, we need a tool that helps us communicate easily with all members. With TeamSnap, each team manager can easily manage its team while club management can use the same tool to quickly send information to the appropriate teams. It was incredibly helpful this summer when we had to communicate with lots of people about a special event organized for the girls. TeamSnap is a very convenient tool for all."
