1. Editor's Note

Welcome to the first Fun Stuff newsletter for 2011. We delayed the newsletter by a week because of the holidays, so this edition contains more articles than usual. Included are two more holiday games from contributors Suzanne Bathe and Adrienne Wallace, who presented them at the 2009 Texas AHPERD convention - my thanks to Suzanne for sending me that gold-mine of articles!

I hope you continue to find the Fun Stuff for PE Newsletter useful in 2011.
