other rally activities
« on: December 24, 2010, 05:36:07 PM »
I would like to see us do more at our rallys so far as organized activities.  I remember we talked once about setting up geocaching prizes, maybe do some sort of chinese auction, a cornhole tournament, etc.

Bill, it's a great idea.

I've always had the thought that I wanted to bring people together with the interest of camping but not make them feel like their weekend was planned.  We've always done a 'meet n greet' Friday evening and a dinner Saturday evening.  I know at the first fall foilage rally 4 years ago, several of us went to a corn maze and other stuff together.

We are going to try a few different dinner options this year http://canvascampers.com/index.php?topic=289.0 and we can also talk about some planned activities.  A horseshoe or cornhole tournament would be fun, maybe a scavenger hunt or the geocaching.  People can join the activity or just observe.

Beerlifter should be able to tell a few story from rallies he has had.  The amazing race was awesome.

We had a few good games prior to our potluck dinner including:

- sitcom theme music
- name the song and artist with only the first 15 seconds (70s, 80s, 90s)
- mixes trivia with history, geography, movies, misc

- going with Beerlifter's awesome experience... I'm think the Amazing Race (camping style) at the Niagara Falls Rally in which each member has to complete a certain task to move on to the next clue (eg. Ice Fishing (large ice chest with 30 beers and 1 coke. Find the coke and drink it). Pitch it ( put up a tent without instructions). Letters in the Sand (scrabble letters in a tupperware container full of sand. Find all the letters and spell a well known camping equipment maker *Coleman*). 

After these tasks where completed they then took off to find there other clue, which just happened to be on the other side of the pond!!! One had to go by paddle boat and the other by land (teams, of course, consisted of two players). Once the found CompuCamper (a lucky member of the rally that choose not to play!) they where handed there next clue. When all was said on done all the members had brought back the makings to build a campfire and where awarded matches by the times in which there tasks where performed, they however didn't know that this is what they where to do while playing the game.

How about some minute to win it type games?
http://gameshows.about.com/od/minutetowinitgames/Minute_to_Win_It_How_to_Play_the_Games.htm
for details and ingredient lists.  I'd be happy to help get items together.  We would need to pick things that are not wind sensitive since we are outside.
