How To Play:
In a traditional Biathlon competitors put their cross country skiing and shooting skills to the test. The Rubber Biathlon puts team against each other in a relay type race where they need to be fast but also be able to shoot rubber bands accurately.
- a few hundred rubber bands
- 10 plastic cups per team
- tables and buckets
- Near the start line you will need a bucket fill with rubber bands for each team
- At the opposite end you will need a table with a cups stacked in a tower (4 on bottom, then 3 , then 2, then 1)
- Also you will need a shooting line on the floor to indicate where to shot from.
Players from each team run down around the table with the cups on it and back to the start line. Once at the start line they will grab 3 rubber bands and run to the shooting line. They then have 3 shoots to knock down as many cups as possible. Once they are done with those 3 shoots they run back to the start line and tag the next person in line.
How To Win
set a predetermined amount of time and count each cup that is shoot down, and the end of the time limit most cups knocked over wins.
Have a leader/helper reset the cups as soon as the player is done with their 3 shoots. Teams are running the race at this time so be quick and make sure you don’t get hit by the players. Also rubber bands are cheep so make sure you have plenty, you don’t want to run out and be cleaning up rubber bands during game play.
