Over the weekend Oxygen had it’s first major Corporate Event with the Oxygen Outdoor Olympics. Nestle Pacific Islands had their end of year Christmas getaway at the Sebel Harbourside Kiama and requested some afternoon activities that woudl be fun for the whole family. After consultation with Nestle, The Sebel and Kiama Council the Oxygen Outdoor Olympics was born.
The Nestle employees plus partners and children totalled almost 40 people and they embraced the afternoon activites in true Olympic spirit. They squared off against each other into Milo and Kit Kat teams and battled out an afternoon of touch footy, frisbee, handball and soccer games.
After a well earned drinks break the teams re-grouped into Boot Camp mode as they battled it out through an Oxygen Obstacle Course known as “Operation Water Torture”. Each team member was given a plastic cup and had to run down to the rock pool, fill up their cup with water and trek through our course full of stairs, tyres, agility poles and markers to fill their team bucket. The team that filled the most buckets would be declared the winner but when after 8 minutes the result ended in a tie, there was only one way to settle it – the final event of the day.
The final event was dubbed the Polly Waffle Team Relay. Nestle has informed the world that the long serving Polly Waffle would be retiring in 2009 so Oxygen searched far and wide for a few of the remaining chocolate bars, purchased them and decided they would make a great team baton for such an event.
By the time these 2 fiercely competitive teams were done they Polly Waffles were trashed, the Kit Kat Team was declared Winners and the Oxygen Outdoor Olympics were over.
I would like to personally thank Alix and Clinton for giving up their time on a Saturday afternoon, Cass and Tania for their photo and video expertise on the day and the Nestle Pacific Islands company for such a fun filled afternoon.
