The fourth Friday, Saturday and Sunday in June is filled with teams participating in more than 20 events like table tennis, archery, lip sync, tug-of-war and volleyball. Teams, first 40 to enter consisting of 10-30 participants ages 18 and older, compete for the gold concluding with a family-style barbecue to announce medal and trophy winners. Cost is $25 per person which includes a team t-shirt.
