POM-POM.

PLAYED IN THE DEEP END OF THE POOL, WIDTH WISE. ONE PERSON IS IT. THE
OTHERS STAND ON THE OUTSIDE, OPPOSITE THE PERSON WHO IS IT.
PERSON WHO IS IT YELLS " POM-POM " AFTER WHICH EVERYONE ON THE
OTHER SIDE JUMP INTO THE POOL AND TRY TO GET TO THE OTHER SIDE
WITHOUT GETTING CAUGHT. THE GAME CONTINUES UNTIL EVERYONE IS CAUGHT.
ONE THING THAT IS IMPORTANT, IS THAT ALL THOSE WHO ARE CAUGHT MUST
REMAIN WITH THE PERSON WHO WAS IT, AND TRY TO CATCH THE OTHERS.

Submitter comment: I USED TO PLAY THIS GAME WHEN I WAS A MEMBER OF THE DETROIT
GOLF CLUB.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; DETROIT
