2021

Updated: Aug 3, 2021

The 2021 Short Family Games was an event unlike any other years. It was highly competitive, with 16 total teams, and lasted a grueling 19 hours long. It was a true test of determination, endurance, and pure grit. A few teams even bowed out of the bar games at the end of the night as we approached 4am. Teams competed in 7 yard games, 4 challenges, 3 bar games, and an epic relay. Many teams gave the 2020 champions a run for their money, but D1 defended their title as Short Family Games 2021 champions. Up The Hill fell only 4 points behind D1 as the Runner's Up of the 2021 games.

Written Brackets


Ideas for Improvement for 2022 games:

  • Double Kubb courts

  • Double Pickleball courts

  • Double Ramp Shot courts

  • Move Axe Throw, build new board

  • Add shuffleboard table

  • Consider 4 person Team Relays

  • Award ceremony needs to happen same day

  • Add kicking, strength, or other tasks to relay

  • Add a maximum amount of fake $ to bets

  • Host a player's dinner Friday night to cover rules and provide player's guide, children welcome

  • Always strive for midnight end time

  • Rank match importance so people know how to prioritize what to play

  • Pick a charitable cause to rally around and donate to
