Chicken Fight

Bodies in Water
Too close, too close
Despair and Sadness

So it looks like there is enough interest to hold the Summer Games. Does anybody have a preferred starting date? We could shoot for the July fourth weekend if everyone is in town and wants to get together or we could just pick a random weekend or two. Personally I think it would be best to do it over two different weekends. If anybody has a date they prefer or are not available let me know otherwise I will just put out a couple of dates.

Who Wants to Play?

I would like to officially propose a Summer Games Event Challenge. I am picturing a decathlon style contest held over a series of weeks or possibly a weekend or two. I tried to come up with ten events that would be fun, challenging and that guys and girls could compete in fairly evenly.
1. Salsa Making
2. Pop-a-shot
3. Limericks (for Leslie)
4. Horseshoes
5. Ice cream making
6. Trivia contest of some kind
7. Risk (or another board game)
8. Three Flies Up (this one may have to be split into guys and girls)
9. Golf (the card game)
10. Dodgeball
If anybody has any suggestions for other contests that should replace or eliminate any of the above please feel free to post them.

Update: Perhaps we could locate a Wii somewhere and put Wii boxing, bowling, tennis, etc in for one or some of the above.

So what does everybody say? Is this something that sounds fun?
