America's Cup Challenge
A Team Development Event requiring participants to design, create, and race a boat on the shores of Lake Erie or any lake! Just so we have a body of water to float our boats and swim if necessary. No gators or crocs please, because some boats seem to not stay afloat!
As Participants arrive
Groups are formed into teams of 5-6 people Each team is given the rules, instructions and specifications for building their own Specialized Boat. At this point. teams must determine the designs for their water vehicles and determine point people for each project. the must allocate
resources to each project; i.e. human resources and meterials. Once this has been completed, the teams may turn their cards in for the actual materials. After the materials have been
collected, teams may negotiate with other teams to trade and barter for material resources.
When the build phase is accomplished
All teams must showcase their designs in the boat parade. Each team is then presented with the race circuit. Teams must compete with one another in the water utilizing the water vehicle they just created.
Laughter abounds as teams compete.
