Instead of starting the teams off staggered according to their arrival time last week, we decided to add their time at the end in order to get out the door quickly. Their first job was to unlock a padlock in order to get their clue inside for their next activity. Two teams were unable to remember how to open them and had to buy the instructions.
Their instructions led to throughout Cofradia to four different stations. Two teams one way and the other two teams another way. Once completing the four stations, they would return to the church for a team photo (to make sure everyone was there).
At the San Marcos Centro Station, they had two activities:
|Place 6 boards together with matching colors.
|Piece together the words of EL RETO 2023's theme verse
At the Cofradia Centro Station, the had to perform the traditional "Coke Race", a race we started to do in 2007. Two team members are carrying another team member who is fed coke from a coke bottle by another team member and carries the coke in their mouth to another team member with another coke bottle to fill it up. The team that is able to transport the most coke, wins...
At the Mission Base Station, the teams had another two activities:
|Eat an apple hanging on a string without your using your hands
|Situate numbers 1 through 9 on a 3x3 grid where all directions equal 15 up, down, and diagonal
|Put in order the books of the New Testament
|The whole team had to work together to guide a ball into a bucket using 1/2 pieces of PVC pipe.
Off to "The Refuge", then voting time, and dismissal...
