**Also we have Yoder's Gift Cards for winners of EACH game!
1) Do we have to stay the entire time?
**No, your family can come in and complete the events on your time line. We ask that families are DONE by 1pm so that we can score and announce the top 5 as soon as we have the results. Events start at 9am so come when you can!
2) Do we have to be present to get our prize?
**No, but families will choose their prize so if you aren't present, you will get whatever prize remains--BUT you will still be able to get an amazing prize!
3) I don't like to (or can't) run, do I have to compete?
** Most of our events don't require running!! You go at your pace
4) Does every person have to compete in every event?
**Nope, some events are 2 people, some can be more if you like and one is for everyone
5) We only have 2 people so how can we participate?
** Lindsay von Herbulis has created a scoring system that will factor in family size so it will be fair no matter what size family
6) Can my child's best friend join us as part of our family
**ABSOLUTELY--families are what you make them so just be sure to have a child UNDER 13 on your team!
7) We don't want to compete, what is there for our families to do?
**Your family can still participate in ANYTHING happening. The only difference is you won't be in the running for a prize. There are also other activities separate from the games--slip and slide, Anytime Fitness has a competition for prizes, Rapidan Baptist will have the Human Hamster Ball, corn hole, toddler fun area and more!
8) Will you have food?
** Yes, Madison Youth Football is going to be selling concessions
9) Can we register on Saturday at the event?
**Definitely--the cost will increase to $30 but you can register up until 11:00!!
