OLYMPIC FAMILY FUN NIGHT:
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2012
Teams of up to eight people will compete in events to earn points.
The team with the most points at the end wins the grand prize and the title of ‘Olympic Champion’ in the Pool.

Event 1...The Olympic Obstacle Course. All team members must make it through each course successfully in order to obtain points for their team. This is a timed event.

Event 2...Wet clothes – yuck!: Four members of your team need to get dressed in the pool. Team member 1 stands on the deck while members 2, 3 and 4 are in the water. The first person gets dressed on the deck, jumps into the pool and swims to #2. #1 takes off the clothes and #2 puts them on then swims to #3 and the process is repeated. At the end #4 climbs out of the pool. This is a timed event with the fastest team winning the most points.

Event 3...Stayin’ Dry, Stayin’ Dry: The goal of this event is for the oldest person on your team to stay high and dry while the other team members (4) get him or her from one end of the pool to the other. To accomplish this the team will be pushing and inner tube with a wood plank balanced on it. The dry person must stand on the wood and not fall in for one lap. Each team to accomplish this will receive 10 points.

Event 4...Flashing Fetch: Flashing plastic ice cubes will be thrown into the pool. Each team will have one representative retrieve as many ice cubes as possible. Teams will receive 1 point for each ice cube. This will be a timed event lasting 5 minutes.
