4x4 "Flip Cup" Relay
Teams will line up on either side of the table. All participants will have four cups in front of them each filled with ¼ of a beer. On the referee’s signal the starting leg will empty the contents in one of their cup then have to “flip” it over before the 2nd leg can go. After the 4th leg finishes their cup and successfully “flips” it over they will then grab their second cup and repeat the process. Thus the relay “snakes” up and down the line and the starting leg is also the last leg.
All penalties will result in 5 seconds being added to the final score.
1) False Start -Grabbing/ touching your cup before the referee signals “Go” or before the leg before you has “flipped” their cup.
2) Excessive spillage/ not finishing a cup’s contents. If a referee determines you didn’t finish your cup and then spilt the remaining contents while attempting to “flip” it over a penalty will be assessed.
Teams will race in one of four heats. The team with the lowest overall time after all penalties have been assessed will receive 50 points. The remaining teams will then receive 50 – the number of seconds away from the winner’s time amount of points. I.e. if the 2nd place team only loses by 4 seconds they will receive 46 points.
