We had a team building event today. I usually don't like this type of event but this wasn't too bad. We are all problem solvers so it was a good event for us.
It was an orienteering game. We were given a map which had spots numbered on it. The goal was to as many spots as possible with your team within 30 minutes. We broke into teams of 6-8 people and then further broke into small groups of 2. You got points for each spot. Some spots could only be visited by one group; others could be visited by everyone.
It ended up being a more physical than I expected. There was a lot of running involved. Our team got second place. We were just one point short.
But the weather was sunny, warm and it was located along the water which helped cool us off. It might be fun to do again. The company who organized it also has public events. I might get G to one some time. If you are looking for a fun team building event - I recommend them.
