Meet The Birdies

Our senior Quest has begun! You can track everything about our minigolf team, The Birdies, at our website http://www.freewebs.com/marylandminigolf. Here I have reprinted the bios of The Birdies. Enjoy!

Michael Connelly (The Pro)

Michael Connelly, a resident of Laurel, Maryland, has been a member of the High School Class of 2008 at Georgetown Day School since Pre-Kindergarten. He gets the nickname "The Pro," as he is an all league golfer in the High School Mid-Atlantic Conference, making him the favorite to win the tournament. He will be attending Dickenson College next year where he might try out for the Golf Team. He is a notoriously slow eater, as it once took him two full periods at a hockey game to finish a backet of Chicken Tenders. Also, he has aged very well, as he has looked the same in everyone of his yearbook photos since the fourth grade. He has the reputation of being the nicest person at GDS and having above average table manners. His interests include, but are not limited to, Orienteering, Israeli Dancing, Hopscotch, and Tai-Chi.

Jeff Schneider (The Stagehand)

Jeff Schneider, a resident of McLean, VA, has been a member of High School Class of 2008 at Georgetown Day School since 9th grade. He gets the nickname "The Stagehand" as he is the senior most member of the lighting crew in the GDS Theatre Department. He will be attending Haverford College next year where he plans to sleep in the dorms. A minor league sports nut, Jeff has an interesting fascisnation with the PG County based football team The Chesapeake Tide. He can often be found at home games with a letter painted across his chest and a song in his heart. He is an extremely picky eater, as he shies away from pasta, sauces, pork, deli meats, vegetables, fish, rice, and any sort of food that isn't American. On weekends he spends his time at Fur Nightclub where he enjoys VIP status and occasionally performs his original hip-hop to capacity crowds. And to all the ladies out there, sorry, this guys taken.

Faysal Al-Sabah (The Prince)

Faysal Al-Sabah, a resident of Washington, DC has been a member of High School Class of 2008 at Georgetown Day School since 10th grade. He gets the nickname "The Prince" as he is a member of the royal family of Kuwait. He will be attending The University of Pennsylvania next year where he plans to take full advantage of the buffet-style meal plan. A three-sport varsity athlete, Faysal excels at soccer, wrestling, and tennis. His active lifestyle was cut short this year when he tore his ACL in a wrestling match. Since then he has excelled in ping-pong where he often accuses his opponents of getting lucky when they hit shots that he can't return. No one has ever heard him sing, but rumors are spreading that his voice is heavenly. He often takes advantage of his status as a diplomat, parking in handicapped spaces, speeding in school zones, vandalizing historic landmarks, urinating publically, and occasionally, jaywalking.

Alex Zeldin (Alex)

Alex Zeldin, a resident of Washington, DC has been a member of High School Class of 2008 at Georgetown Day School since 3rd grade. He gets the nickname "Alex," as it is short for his legal name, Alexander. He will be attending The University of Miami next year where he plays to take up skiing. An award winning filmmaker, he has received prizes at some of the world's most prestigious film festivals (such as the Friends School of Baltimore Film Festival and The Edmund Burke School Film Festival). He maintains the blog Zeld..in..Da..HOUSE!! found at azeldin.blogspot.com, where his unique views on life make those who read it question whether he is in need of psychiatric treatment. He is incredibly froogle and can be seen at food courts circling to find the lowest price on soda. When he is not in school or making films, he volunteers his time by playing the saxophone for the blind. Few enjoy it.
