After each throw, both pairs will move back one yard. If balloon is dropped AND it pops, the pair is eliminated, BUT if balloon is dropped and it DOES NOT pop, the pair can still continue playing. Last standing pair wins the competition for their class
Event 2: Hula Hoop 1 boy, 1 girl from each class/staff Each person has a hula hoop. On the signal, everyone starts circulating the hula hoop at his/her waist.
