Please note: Competitive and Just For Fun teams will be on the course at the same time – we have a ton of games and capacity, so there’s plenty of choices but we do ask for your understanding too if the popular games have a line up!

Opt-Out of Activities:

All participants have the option to opt-out of any activity at their discretion. A team must have at least 4 members to participate in activity. So, if you have 5 or 6 members on your team, one or two may sit out so that the other 4 can participate. If you have fewer than 4 participating team members, you may still complete the activity, but you will not receive a stamp for completing it (i.e. the rest of the team can participate for fun, but you will not get credit for completion).
