Olympic Night !

The Olympic challenges were tough!   Somehow we didn't snap pics of the games themselves...

Snowball toss (bouncing ping pongs balls into buckets) was won by Adam!
Bobsledding (blowing through a straw to push an icecube down a sled) was won by Dave!

That brought us to the Championship round, where Dave and Adam went toe to toe in an Olympic trivia contest.  While Dave was often the quickest to answer, he was also often to name a summer Olympic event and that proved costly as Adam took home the Gold!

Todd & Brad create the Gold Medal winner!  Dave takes his spot in the silver medal spot.  

Tom was crowned Fantasy Football Champion! 
Getting ready... we did have a few more join the crew (running late apparently!)

The weekend plans...

Saturday 7:30am: Off Season Striders will roll out from Dunn Brothers on Elton Hills.   This will be the last of the Saturday OSS's for awhile, as the Marathon training long runs start from the RAC on Feb 15th.   (Sunday OSS will continue).
