While the official Honey Badger Holiday Party was a bit later this year, it was still quite an amazing bit of fun! Since it fell at the end of January, we worked in a Chinese New Year theme in some bits. The turn out was pretty amazing, with a steady 18-20 Badgers throughout the entire night.
I was a bit worried since I was hosting this year at my home, but all seemed to go well. I wasn’t sure if there’d be enough room, I still hadn’t purchased a couch, and frankly I’m not the most domesticated guy out there. Once again the team stepped up and chipped in just like during a game and brought folding chairs and countless yummy dishes to contribute to the great time.
We had a games challenge similar to last years, with numerous random activities.
- chopsticks challenge
- sticker stalker
- Chinese Zodiac match
- Mario Kart
- push ups
- drawing a picture
- dart gun (sadly the gun broke?)
- Wii Fit luge
All the games with the exception of the dart gun game went extremely well. Sadly the dart gun broke early on, but not before the Shepherd put on a clinic in accuracy. It was kind of frightening to see, but impressive.
The majority of the guests stayed up until the end when Caitlin and Allen/Scott were crowned champions!
My only regret on the night is that I didn’t take photos! I was so busy keeping track of the events and keeping things going that I didn’t take the time to take any photos.
Overall I’d say it was another tremendous Badger success. I had a great deal of fun and will have to have the Badgers over more often!
