The Content department decided to bring back its long-lost tradition of “Picnic Olympics” this year on Tuesday, April 9th. What a windy day it turned out to be! At least I didn’t get slapped in the face by a flying hamburger again this year!
The fun-filled shindig took place at Pecos Legacy Park, where everyone donned their Content t-shirts and creatively decorated themselves in their team colors.
While Dickey’s BBQ set up the catered spread of beef brisket, pulled pork, potato salad, baked beans and other picnic favorites, six teams feverishly scoured the park for scavenger hunt clues. There was no actual hidden temple, but it was Team 1, the Purple Parrots, who claimed victory in this event.
With bellies too full for any intense physical activity, the next round of competition involved five Minute to Win It-inspired games. This fast-paced event really had everyone cheering each other on! From fishing pennies out of pantyhose to stacking dice on Popsicle sticks, the hidden talents of some Content members became all too apparent. Team 3, Vitamin C-ya, pulled ahead of all others in this round.
No one was safe from humiliation during the final round of competition! Teams battled it out in several relay race games, which included jumping rope, running like a chicken, hopping like a frog, and more. Team 4, Cruel and Unusual Content Chaos (AKA: Your Worst Nightmare), took first place.
As you can see, team and family spirit was in full swing at the Spring 2013 Content Picnic Olympics. Some great prizes were awarded not just to the overall winning teams of the games, but also to these honorable mentions: Team 5, Green Eggs and BAM!, for best team name and Team 2, Pinky and the Brains, for best use of team color. A great time was had by all, and hopefully history will repeat itself at Content’s next Picnic Olympics this fall!
