FIRST ROUND

10:00 am to 10:45 am

 

TEA BOILING

Teams will compete in a timing event that will determine who will be the fastest in creating a fire pit, starting a fire and boiling a pot of tea.

TWO PERSON CROSS CUT SAWING

Once again teams will go head-to-head in determining who is the fastest in cutting cookies. A very popular event that will bring a lot of excitement to the games.

SNOW SNAKING

Resembling a snake as it slides down the track is the next competition. This event will have a different twist in that it will be the first of two Captain’s Challenges. The Captains will go head-to-head in earning points to win the infamous Snow Snake challenge. Distance as well as hitting the bullseye will determine winners for this event.

SECOND ROUND

1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

LANCER DE LA PITOUNE

One of the traditional lumber jack games where competitors toss logs into a specified area. Strength and accuracy will determine the winner of this game.

SNOW SHOE RELAY

Speed, team work and do not drop the baton or your team will be eliminated. Teams will compete in determining who can complete each heat and go to compete the Snow Shoe Relay finale. Fun guaranteed!

PEA SPITTING

The second Captain’s Challenge. Games would not be the games if we did not include “Pea Spitting.” Recording distances as well as receiving points for being on target will enhance the chances of winning this event.

THIRD ROUND FINALE

3:15 pm to 4:00 pm
SEAL CRAWL RELAY

Now we cannot wait for this event as we envision that it will be a scream. Can you imagine competitors on their tummies, moving down the track mimicking a seal? Should be a hoot and the final event towards winning the day.
