2x4x8 Guys Multi-Sport Weekend

Just back from a fun weekend in PG with Craig, Ian and Brain.

It was what I am calling a 2x4x8 (x16) weekend. That is, 2 days, 4 guys, 8 games and 16 scoring opportunities. What? - you say:) Let me explain. So what do guys love to do when they get together. Come up with a game they can play that always includes some friendly competition. That is exactly what we did over the weekend.

We played golf, frisbee golf, bocce, cards, dice, horse shoes, basketball and sac toss. We had multiple games within some of these creating a pretty busy couple of days. The winner of each received 5 points, second 3, third 1 and fourth 0.

The champion was Craig. He got a huge lead and wasn't seriously challenged after that. The battle ended up being for second. I pulled it out in our last game - frisbee golf.

We all had a great time. The games were fun. The drinks were good. We had some good food. And lots of time to hang out, BS and get away from work. We will definitely be doing this again next year, maybe up in Truckee.
