The Pinellas County Meetup Olympics (Team Competition At Lassing Park)

    So I've been talking to Chris about doing an olympics team-based event....

    If this is successful, we may be seeing this a lot more.

    Alright... so let's get to what it's all about.... this is where I need ideas... Lots of them! (Comment below and give your input)

    Here's some basic info:

    Forming Teams:

    Normally I would say let's form teams before the event, but just in case we have no-shows, we will form teams based off who shows up that day. That means we will have team captains designate who's going to perform in what competitions.

    Like most team based events, you start off the competition with your 1st team member completing the challenge, they then tag the 2nd team member to complete the 2nd challenge, and so on. Example we could have a 3 person team that has 6 challenges to complete with each team member doing 2 of the challenges.

    Ideas I have thought of have been racing, scavenger hunt portion of the competition, speed-games twister? or some other game. Would love to include drinking competition, but more than likely we won't be able to just bring that in a park.

    Location Has Been Decided: Lassing Park

    We may need referees too, so if thats your thing and you can get a ref shirt, awesome!

    So here's what we need as a recap:

    1) Activity suggestion, what we can do as competition (what equipment we need to get to make it happen)

    2) Winner selection, 1st, 2nd and 3rd, or just a 1st place?

    3) Prize? Do you guys want to do prizes, we might be able to put something up, but would you guys be willing to pay for an entry through the meetup and the collected ticket money will go to paying for prizes? Let us know.

    4) Preferred date, I'm thinking a Saturday in maybe a month so we can plan this out.

    (Date is Subject To Change)

    I really want to RSVP but my L leg has an old softball injury so I can't sprint (go f standing still to darting off running) or I will tear my quad again. I can do activities that don't involve me running at the speed of light. Let me know if I can still be qualified. Ty :)

      I'm still trying to figure out a date to do it, gotta get some of the equipment, the good thing is because it will be teams based, you can have your team pick you for the activities that won't cause issues :)

    Just a quick update guys, still haven't decide an official date yet, but if you are interested please RSVP, still figuring out interests. I'm going to have to buy some of the stuff we'll need, but I'm very interested in making this a reality.

      Hey Anthony , I just pushed the date out, nothing is set in stone yet, in the next week or two I'll be able to figure out an official date, I just have to order some of the equipment for the games

      June 26

    I'm going to move this back a little, until we get a solid date everyone. We are still planning the activities, getting the equipment, etc.. It will def. be on a Saturday. And I'll keep this up to date when we know for sure.

    Alright so Lassing Park is going to be our location. Need about 8-10 game ideas, and then we gotta figure out how to get these games and bring them to the park.

      Potatoe sack race, tug of war, three legged race, scavenger hunt, egg toss or egg and spoon race. I'm sure Pinterest has a lot of great suggestions too

    How about some sort of walk the plank competition? Like you have to walk a certain distance without knocking bottles over or something like that. And maybe some sort of sword fighting?
