BM - NOT stealing your thunder but thought it might be easier for you, and others, to have this as a new thread due to the other one getting SOOOOO long now. If you're not happy with this, please feel free to delete it - I don't want to be stepping on any toes especially as I will only be a day visitor (although OH is working both Sat & Sun so I might be a 2 day visitor... :001_smile: ) that weekend. A couple of suggestions to chuck in the hat for consideration: 1. Name Badges - why not have everyone make their own name badge & have a wee prize for the best one.... (This also takes some pressure off BM who is already doing a lot of the organising. The stress of trying to avoid typos might be her undoing... ) 2. Have a wee Mini 'It's a Knockout' or PF Olympics - using things like swingballs, the larger garden games you can get like Jenga, etc (see piccie) and perhaps even a Twister tournament. You could also chuck in a few 'Sports Day' events like 3-legged race or egg & spoon. If everyone brought some 'goodies' (wine, sweeties etc) to pool together, these could be the prizes..... As I said these are just a couple of thoughts, I'm sure you guys out there have got even better ones.
