Kickoff 2014: The Marshmallow Challenge

By January 21, 2014 No Comments

All Daxko team members recently participated in our annual Kickoff.  During this time, we celebrated our successes from 2013, looked forward to all that we’d accomplish in 2014, and had some “friendly” competition thrown in for good measure.

At the end of our second day together, we competed in teams for the coveted Family Lunch Prize Package which included choosing the menu, being first in line to eat, and then heading home for PTO post-lunch.  While my team didn’t win, I still had a great time competing in the different challenges.

A few of my favorites:

  • The Marshmallow Challenge:  Each team was given 20 sticks of uncooked spaghetti, a yard of tape, a yard of floss, and a jumbo marshmallow.  Whichever team constructed the tallest tower that could stand on its own with the marshmallow on top, won.  Learn more here.
  • Skateboard & Plunger Race:  I did not bring much athletic prowess to my team in the other competitions, but I finally made them proud in this race.  Each competitor sits down on a skateboard and uses two plungers to push the skateboard across the floor.  Your feet can’t touch the floor.  Whichever team wins the relay goes home with the gold.
  • Tug of War:  A timeless classic that never gets old.

Congratulations to Team Yam for their win in this year’s games.  Enjoy your well-deserved prize.  My vote is for the taco truck when you choose family lunch!
