Here is an insight roughly on how the event take will place, plus an example of a game itself.

1: There will be 10 games, with 10 Teams involved.
2: Each team will have one attempt at each game.
3:Every team will be involved simultaneously, at one of the games that they are taking part in.
4: There is a time limit per game ( yet to be decided).
5: Each team scores points or has a fast time to achieve at each game
6: The team with the highest score or the fastest time will be 1st and awarded 10 points, followed by the 2nd 9 points and so on, per event game.
7: The team with the highest No of points total overall the 10 games, will be classed the winner, followed by the next highest points will be 2nd and so on.

Example of a game.

Bin Ball

Equipment needed.

5 x Golf Balls
5 x Tennis Balls
5 x Rugby Balls
5 x Footballs
5 x Basket Balls

4 x Black Bins.

1:(a) Objective to score points with each of the balls, within the time allocated at the commencement of each event.

2:(a) items

(i) Golf Ball
(ii) Tennis ball
(iii) Rugby ball
(iv) Football
(v) Basket Ball

3:(c) Points are awarded as to the throw and the landing directly into the following bin and it remaining in the bin to score.

(i) Bin 1 = 1 pt
(ii) Bin 2 = 3 pts
(iii) Bin 3 = 5 pts
(iv) Bin 4 = 7 pts

4: Distance
(a) the bins will be set at a distance in a zig-zag position, as follows
(i) Bin 1 = 3m
(ii) Bin 2 = 5m
(iii) Bin 3 =7m
(iv) Bin 4 =10m

5: (a) From a marked position, each member of the team shall attempt to throw 1 ball of each game ball into the bin of his/her choice to score.

6: (a) On completion of everyone throwing each game ball and within the time allocated, the score shall be totalled up and recorded by the adjudicator.

7: (a) Penalties

(i) Any remaining balls not thrown in the allocated time will receive a penalty to the value of the game ball in total, as follows.

8: (a) The team captain shall be given a score card with the total score of his/her team from the adjudicator marked on it, and it is his/her responsible for his/her teams games score, to reach the control point and be handed in, to be recorded on the master score board. It must be presented, before the next event is signalled, to get the next games underway. Failure to do so will result in minimum points awarded.

Hopefully this will give everyone some sort of idea on how a potted sports event is run. I can assure you it's great fun and ends up being a laugh with a competitive edge to it as the games go on.
