    Since I've witnessed some of us lose interest in the contests we've had in the past (longest distance, painter's tape, pool, etc.) I've posted some possible choices for a new fun activity we can either do in our vehicles, or in the game room.

    So far we are having an extreme ping pong tournament, however there was very little interest in actual ping pong and pool last year. The longest distance traveled is always won by the same person (sorry dentrecords , lol), and only a few people taped their cars from last year, including my haphazard attempt.

    So here are some of the choices I thought about today, feel free to suggest your own:

    Well in a nutshell, it's a challenge for the truly brave. You must first, fill up a paper coffee cup with the incredibly hot instant coffee that Fontana offers in the lobby.

    With the cup filled to the top, you must then walk to the computer in the lobby and them back to the designated seat in the lobby and place the cup down on the table....without burning yourself or succumbing to the pain. Once you get some coffee on your hand it starts a vicious cycle of shaking the cup in pain, and then getting more on your hand, and so on.

    Who ever can get the cup on the table w/o burning their hand or fastest time of those who doesnt get burned wins.

    Instead of the masochistic contest, let's just get an ice bucket placed next to the coffee machine. A couple of cubes and fill your cup with coffee.

    RE: Spicy Food Challenge

    Does anybody want to take on my Jerk Chicken. I served some up at work one time and the hispanic guys wouldn't eat it! They said "demasiado caliente!"

    Try me, I bet I can eat it.

    I can make a curry that will tap most people out.
