Every year, Karwoski & Courage takes a day off to visit the Minnesota State Fair, enjoy some friendly competition, and generally have fun. This year was no different.
Our first order of business, of course, was to name our teams:
99 Problems But A Pitch Ain’t One
The Fanny Packs
Dad & The Girls: The College Years
- Emily F.
Where’s The Air Conditioning?
- Emily W.
This is verbatim from the Official Karwoski & Courage #PRonaStick Minnesota State Fair Outing Handbook:
You spoke and we listened – we will be doing away with the photo scavenger hunt this year. In its place we will be having three competitions.
Competition 1: Melee At The Midway
This challenge will consist of an 8 round duke-it-out challenge of the Midway games. Each team will send one team member to battle it out in a variety of different fair games, from throwing a Ping-Pong ball in a fish bowl, to shooting a target, to knocking over the pins. Points will be awarded as follows for each game: 1st place receives 4 points, 2nd place receives 3 points, 3rd place receives 2 points, and last place receives 1. But remember, it’s all fun and games, until you learn what the grand prize will be.
Competition 2: Trivia Challenge at the Commissary
We’ll all meet up at lunchtime and try to eat even more Fair food. We’ll also have a team game of trivia happening with a couple rounds of questions. After each round, the announcer will collect each team’s
answers and tally up the points. The team with the most number of points at the end will be declared the winners of trivia. The number of points awarded for trivia are as follows: 1st place receives 10 points, 2nd place receives 8 points, 3rd place receives 6 points, and last place receives 4.
Competition 3: Team Costume Contest
This is a standalone contest and doesn’t affect the points total for the grand prize. Coordinate your Fair outfits with your team, and whichever team has the best outfits wins. Glenn will be the judge, so no complaining.
The Ring Toss
Wack A Mole
Shawne vanquishes the Wack A Mole competition and is rewarded with a striped, stuffed, something:
Glenn, Connor, Emily W. and Kristin try the ball toss. Pay attention to where both Emily W. and Kristin hit their pyramids of cups. I know, right? Right smack dab in the middle of the base of the cups. We think some of those cups are glued down.
