Typical Duration:60
Skills Required:Physical
Time Frame:Day
Work as:Individual
Equipment Needs:Moderate
DescriptionYou have to fill the hat to win the race.
BasicsWe get enough ten gallon aquariums for each team to have one. We also get little buckets for each team. Each bucket is filled and then the first person from each team carries it on their head. The first team fill their aquarium wins.
Why is this Fun?Running outside with water will quickly lead to ice. Watching people run on ice while carrying water is about as fun as it gets
Variations:To make it more challenging, you could make it full contact. This would give Goons a huge defecit because they are so weak. I was also thinking that they could just carry the whole tank back and forth and if you lose any water, you have to start from the begining.
Equipment List:10 gallon bucket
smaller buckets
hose or really large bucket
