This past weekend we kicked off Brandcation with our first ever Blogger Olympics, sponsored by Jambu Footwear. We gave our Attendees very little warning as to what all would be involved in Blogger Olympics, only assured them that there would be very little physical fitness involved. As a “Condo Mom” I got to be the team leader and cheer my team on…. while laughing hysterically.
The Blogger Olympics began with a Scavenger Hunt which covered the entire Portofino Property. Let me tell you that there are few things funnier than being on the 11th floor of a condo and overlooking 4 groups of 8 women in different colored shirts – some sporting floppy hats, ladybug wings, and mustache sun glasses – scurry around between 5 towers racing to take pictures of their finds.
After the Scavenger Hunt we hit the beach for White House Sand Castle Building (I still think my team nailed it), grass skirt and coconut bra relay, float races, and a hula hoop contest… which I am proud to say my girl Denise absolutely smoked the competition on. For a lady who has given birth to quads, she pretty much was bowed to after that performance.
Trisha, Kim, Blondie, and I were coordinating and coaching the events – which means laughing hysterically and talking smack to one another the entire time. I even put a bounty on Blondie if someone could dunk her during the float races, but for a little thing she is hard to take down. It was fabulous.
It was an absolute blast, and I am so proud of my Blue Team – The Beachin Bloggers – for doing such an awesome job in the competition! Thanks again to Jambu Footwear for the sponsorship which made the Blogger Olympics 2012 possible.
