1)Try a larriet..uh lairiet... darn..., larriette...shoot...(sigh)...Try a
rope toss with rope hoops thrown towards a 'bull' (paper mache, unless you
have someone with some long-horns or a moose head) as they ride by.
Tigers/Wolves could stop the bike before throwing.
2) Same as above, but throw bean bags at a target on the ground or at
baskets at an angle. Points for accuracy.
3) Saw this one in Mexico with real horses (very tough with 35 riders at
full gallop). Suspend a wire or rope above the course. Have lots of
ribbons hanging from the wires >loosely< attached with clothespins or paper
clips. Have 4-5 different colors, each color a different length from 12-30
inches (Reds=12''=10pts, Blues = 18"=5 points, all others =2pts etc). The
shorter the ribbon, the harder it is to grab, the more points you get. Have
the rope suspended so that to get the shortest ribbon, the boy has to stand
up on the pedals as he goes by. Don't place the ribbons so close that the
boys can grab a handful, but 2 would be great! HAve all participants race at
the same time or do it in smaller groups. You can do 2-3 passes, then count
up the points. Have extra ribbons ready to add in by the 3rd pass. In
Mexico they do not do this, and the ensuing mad rush for the few remaining
ribbons is not suitably safe for boys (no guns in the one that I saw, but
lots of fists). This could also be part of an obstacle course.
If I think of any others I will send them on.
Could I have a completed list when you are done?
