The crescendo of the three day competition is the Endurance course which tests the competitors’ endurance (obviously) and ability to complete outdoor-related skills. More than any other course, this one is just flat fun to build. Anything from dog training to emergency ATV repair to frog gigging can be thrown at the competitors.
Belly-crawling under a thicket and a bow-fishing target (two of my favorites) are examples of past skills. We always add in new stuff with the old so the competitors never now what’s coming their way until practice day.
Scenario: As the TOC Competitions Manager, you are designing the Endurance course. Remember, safety, time, and being able to exactly replicate the course for 16 competitors restrict what you can designate as skills.
Question: Name five to 10 skills you would have the competitors perform in the Finals. (Omit running yardage between skills; unless you have seen the venue there isn’t anyway of knowing that.) The person that is closest to matching the actual course wins. No answers accepted after 8 a.m., September 9, 2010. (When the competitors get their first look at the course)
