1. Costume Contest | 30-60 seconds | Full team
Each team gets an opportunity to strut their sartorial stuff for the judges.

2. IKEA Bag Hop | Timed | Individual event
Think potato sack race but with a Swedish twist. Total distance to be determined.

3. Crossing | 60 seconds | Individual rope jumping event
The cross requires two successful jumps: the rope must pass under the jumper’s feet on the first rotation with her arms crossed and then on the second rotation it must pass under the jumper’s feet with the arms uncrossed. Deduct one jump for each miss.
