"The Way, Way Back," starring Steve Carrell and Sam Rockwell, concerns a summer vacation, including life lessons learned at a water park.

To win free passes to a July 18 screening of the film at Keystone Art Cinema, all you have to do is share an awkward summer memory below. I'll pick winners at random until all the passes are gone.

Good luck. And hope you are enjoying your summer.

  • drive in theater
    got lost in drive in movie and could['t remember type of car my date was driving
  • Again?
    Having to take "Swimming for Beginners" lessons. Twice.
  • Shark!
    I refused to go swimming for a whole summer after seeing the movie Jaws because I thought a shark could swim up through the dran and make its way into the local community pool.
  • Awkward summer memiry
    Went to summer music camp, met a really cute, smart guy. Went to the beach with him, my boyfriend from home was there.
  • awkward
    dude in front of me at the surf rider lost his swimming trunks .. the water pressure knocked them right off... luckily his feet caught them before they got completely pushed off or else i would have had to help him out by getting them... instead "all" i had to do was turn away so i wasn't looking at his bare arse
  • itchy
    At summer camp got a little poison ivy, umm, down there...
  • Impressive- NOT!
    Ran into a parked car on a bicycle as I was waving good-bye to a boy I was trying to impress.
  • DOH!
    Fell off a pontoon into White River while trying to light a cigarette on a tiki torch. Bad form!!!! Now a non-smoker.
  • More a scar than a memory
    Debuting my girth-slimming new tank suit at the community pool when I was about 10, and getting stuck in it after it got wet. Had ripped the skin on my torso raw by the time I wrestled it off in the changing room. Awkward!
  • Shocking
    Touching an electric fence while commenting "It's amazing these two little wires keep those huge cows in there..."
  • Summer camp
    Went away to summer camp for one week when I was 11 with my younger sister. We used to meet in the camp's chapel and cry together because we were so homesick.
  • awkward summer moment
    Driving as a passenger with a buddy of mine. His brother was in the service and we were in his Mustang. Driving around the "Tee-Pee", reeving the engine and the car died. Everyone in the parking lot started honking their horns and clapping
  • Awkward
    I packed a bag for a night at the lake and you would have thought I was packing for the entire summer. Upon walking up some rocks towards our camp site, my luggage hit the rocks and everything spilled out. You can really get a glimpse of who someone is by the contents of their suitcase. My new boyfriend found out a lot about me with just one spilled suitcase.
  • Camping
    Went camping... Woke up nearly floating. Water up to our knees.
  • awkward summer memory
    basically anytime a bathing suit was involved...
  • Swimming
    Didn't know how to swim when I went to camp - had to learn on the fly to not look like an idiot.

  1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

  3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
