I was asked about Olympic activities since the Winter Olympics are beginning
Here are some thoughts

Watch a live or taped portion of the opening ceremony
This will get the paticipants in the mood. Remember it is the group leaders attitude and enthusiasm that make a big diffference in the success of an activity.

Have several events planned
trivia is always good-
even though you might have only one winner- you can have seoond third etc., best effort, best smile, best attitude. This way you can give everyone a chance to participate
-You always have those who like to shout out the answers
-For those who are shy or not as quick, I always ask them by name what they think.
Of course I am extra complimentary to these people

I will be posting more events anf more ideas.

If you cannot wait email
