Office Olympics: Winter Games Part II

Thursday, February 18, 2010 - 
The first three events have come and gone.  Photos to recap the office debauchery...

Slalom Cart Relay Race 
Object is to complete the slalom course, which consists of three flower pots and the cubicles, while pushing a cart (aka dolly cart) holding a box.

Everyday office items (ie. stapler) were on the chairs of the individual cubes, and these needed to be collected in the box the offletes were pushing around.  If the box fell, she would need to stop and replace it before moving on.

Once the slalom was completed, the two "offletes" had to recreate an office setup to complete the race.

Cubicle Biathlon
Once again, the cubicles were the course for this relay of events.  Each team had three participants - each was responsible for running a lap around the cubicles...

and then throwing a sharpie at a target.

Did I mention a UPS man came in (yes, that's me accepting a package in the background mid-throw)

 Some teams even tried to argue their spots.  It gets intense, these Office Olympics.

Swivel Chair Curling
This event is exactly as it sounds.  A teammate hurling their partner in chair to achieve the top score. 

 This gives you a better view of the Office Olympic torch

The blue markers indicate which point area they are in - and no one hit the wall, I promise

That's it, the first three events.  Medal count is pretty close, but we still have two events to go.  Couple Ribbon Dancing (our version of couple ice skating, I personally can't wait) and Doortending (our version of hockey.)  Of course, all the highlights will be documented for your enjoyment (especially cube-in-law, who is most likely shaking his head at this very moment.)

Do I enjoy putting on these Office Olympics?  Absolutely.
