Squirrels & Nuts (Team Comp)

Goal:  Pick up tennis balls (or similar) and drop them in a designated circle. 

Players:  Two teams of 5-10 per group.  No poles. 

Equipment: Stadium.  Two ropes or hula hoops or containers.  20 or more colorful tennis balls.  

Setup:  Spread balls out randomly on one side of a stadium, place the nest/rope/hula hoops on the other end.

Rules:  Skiers ski from the nest to the balls as an entire team all at once picking up one per trip back to the nest.  Skiers must coordinate the best strategy to not run into each other.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank to all of the athletes from the Fondeurs Laurentides cross country ski club for their time and enthusiasm in participating in the creation of these videos, filmed in the Laurentians north of Montreal, Quebec.
