    Favorite Game/Promo

    What's your favorite game or promo at your Curves? My favorite was when we did a "Star Wars" theme. We came up with group names, made posters for our group, and had different tasks to complete over the 6 weeks.

    My Curves doesn't do many games or promos, usually just Scrabble. But we did play Trivial Pursuit once and that was a lot of fun.

    We try to play a game every other month. Sometimes it is bingo. We really went out for survivor and had torches that I made which is a joke since I'm not crafty. Does your club have a suggestion box? If it does put in there play more games. I love suggestions from my members. That is how we ended up with the stretching machines from a great member and friend.

    Game/Amazing Race

    My Curves just finished the Amazing Race. I worked out a route around the world, the members "went" 500 miles per workout & we did daily challenges to earn bonus miles. The teams "visited" 15 places around the world. There were roadblocks at each country that at least one team member had to complete before the team could move on. After completion of the roadblock, the teams were given envelopes that told them their next destination & maybe fast forwarded them or delayed them a little. The roadblocks were all the same, the "on your way" envelopes they got after completing the roadblock were all a little different. One team was eliminated at each country. We had small "prizes" for the team that was eliminated & we tried to have it appropriate to the country they were eliminated in. For our "champions", we took Curves sweatshirts & had the local embroidery place put ""The Amazing Race 2006" & their team logo on the back. We "started" at our home Curves & ended in Waco. The members absolutely loved this & are asking to do it again -- not for awhile!! We made my manager into "Phil" & she tracked the teams & moved their markers on the world map as they made their ways around the world.

    It took about 6 weeks to finish, another time I would "tighten" things up a little so that it doesn't take so long. That said, no one lost interest, in fact, the members seems to get move hyped as time went on. So far, this has been the best game I've come up with!

    I have to admit, I'm jealous! I generally participate in every Curves event, but my locations have never done anything that elaborate! Congrats on hosting such a successful event Once a year might be a good practice... so you won't overdo it, but the ladies can look forward to it.

    Our curves did a survivor as well. It was need how they had everything set up. And if you were playing and missed a workout you had to wear a coconut bra and grass skirt for a workout to get back into a game....if you missed another time then you were booted off the island. They had games set up that you could do, and even mystery things to eat. It was neat to see.

    Our curves does alot to keep people coming back. We have puzzels, games on the recovery pads. I love my curves
