Oatmeal Wrestling
Let's get ready to rumble!

Lay down a huge tarp(s) and surround it with bales of hay or the like. Pour oats into the middle of the tarp and soak them with water. Let the water soak for an hour or so until it gets soft and gooshy. (Do not use horse oats...they tend to itch!)

Then have a wrestling tourney, guys against guys and girls against girls. Make sure there is a ref to announce the winners. Then have a leader of the same sex wrestle the student champion girl and student champion guy.

We usually do this event during summer camp because it can take up a huge chunk of time.
