Team Olympics / Team Games
Stop dividing your team when it’s time for recreation at your meetings. Take the time to check us out. We can provide you with the ideal team builder using the Olympics as a backdrop. All team members are challenged to work together to reach the Olympic goal of Gold. Forget some of the team playing golf, some sitting by the pool, some at the bar, some horse back riding and some sitting in their rooms. Get all of them involved and working together in a competitive environment taking the challenge, that only team building (wild west style) can provide.

a calf head on the
front end of a bale of hay. Each team is timed and
given only a certain amount of maximum time to complete. Penalties
are given for members who can’t rope the steer. All times will
be compiled and the fastest team wins the event.

net using modified US Olympic Volley Ball rules. One team will serve
with the opposing team returning serve and the game will go to 11 points
or the team with the most points when time is called being declared the
winner. The winning team scores are tallied for highest point totals.
