  • Brokeback got us good.
Please tell us what activity you would most like to participate in at the Memorial Day event in Estes Park, Colorado. I would like to arrange for a special activity for BetterMostians and their friends only!! If there's something you would like to do that isn't on the list, record it here.

Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

And the all-day hike takes an early lead!! We could certainly arrange for sack lunches to take along with us. The hike could be guided or unguided.

Okay Eric, have fun in Wyo! I'm also going to add white-water rafting.

Hiking still leads but others are catching up to it. Maybe I'll add reenactments to the list. I have a volunteer to reenact the beating-on-a-shirt-in-the-middlde-of-a-stream-while-wearing-only-boots scene already! That should be a hit.

I also got a volunteer for the reunion run down the staircase. Now all I need is Jack in a red shirt.

Since I've added a few things, I made it so you can change your vote if you like.

Even if you can't come, you can still vote! Everyone will be a participant, virtually or in person!!

What? Nobody wants to lasso, wrestle, and roll down hills??

I would be glad to talk about Rocky Mountain wildflowers a little while hiking. With all this moisture we're getting, there will be tons of wildflowers!

Even if I can come, I would be on the road trip. But since you encouraged everyone to vote, I did so.
I voted for lassoing/wrestling/rolling down hills  ;D.  We all know the olympic games, some may have heard of the Scottish Highland-Games and there are also Friesian Games (with exotic subjects like wellington boots throwing contest). So why not having our own, fun Western games/BBM games?

  • running down the staircase would make a wonderful fitting category.
  • (Faked) falling off the horse
  • shouting "ALMA!" on the top of your lungs
  • pitching up a tent as fast as possible (but the tent has to look right  ;D)(could be played in teams of two or more)
  • dragging an reluctant victim to a make-believe dancefloor and throwing hair like crazy
  • carrying water in buckets from point A to point B
  • ...and on and on...

Some of these may/will overlap with the reenacting of scenes. You could work out different categories: best reenacting, fastest time, funniest performance.....

I would love participating in such BBM games.

Great ideas, Chrissi! We'll make sure you can participate even if you are going on the roadtrip. Course you'll have to do without sleep till you get on the plane again.  ;D
