Old School Sports Day
You need something really good for an Edinburgh stag weekend. Otherwise, you'll just end up stumbling up the Royal Mile pished by 5pm. Not good. Your best bet is an activity like Old School Sports Day. Something different, nostalgic and well funny that's guaranteed to get everyone involved and trigger team spirit. Bonding. Banter. All that stuff that turns a standard pissup into an epic stag.
Here's what happens on the day: get yourselves over to the venue, which will either be a field or a sports hall. You'll get the exact details when you book. Events instructors will be waiting. Along with a bunch of stuff you remember from primary school P.E. The cones will be out. Space hoppers will be lined up and ready to jump. Eggs will be out of boxes and next to spoons, ready for action.
The whole group will be divided into teams and then it's time to race! Which total legend will win the 100m? Who can focus long enough to get his egg over the finish line without dropping it like a doofus? Who will take one for the team and jump hard and fast enough to win the sack race after a night on the beer?
You're planning an Edinburgh stag weekend so the fancy dress is going to be a piece of piss. Tartan kilts. Never gets old. Maybe Braveheart if you're feeling it. Besides, when are you going to get the chance to wear a sporran again? Get into the school sports day spirit, go old school and smash it!
