Program Summary:

This was a very fun, well-rounded program that encompassed many different aspects of the term "Old School." We learned about chapter history, discussed past events, and played various old games. There was also a cookout!

Full Description:

The program started off with everyone's favorite -- food! Our chapter payed for a cookout, so some of chapter board came early to cook the food. We had burgers and buns, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, chips, potato salad, and pop, but you can make changes depending on what you want. As members arrived and started to eat, we had a little discussion on Columbine and preventing bullying (see attachment for what we discussed).

After people were done eating (about 45 minutes), we split into four "families" for two games of Family Double Dare hosted by two board members. Before we started, families were given an education packet filled with chapter history and traditions and were told to look over it thoroughly; questions would be asked later on. We then played three rounds of Double Dare -- 90s Pop Culture, Fun Judaism, and Exodus History (again, see attachment for questions and physical challenges). This all takes about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the speed of gameplay.

We then moved inside and watched some Old School TV. We watched an episode of Rugrats and an episode of Rocket Power, taking about 45 minutes. Afterwards, we played Super Smash Bros. (N64) and Super Monkey Ball 2 (GameCube) to the end of the program, again around 45 minutes. People were allowed to hang out and talk to each other during the video games as well.

Supplies needed: Food, grill, cups, plates, napkins, forks, prepared AIT packets, DVDs of the TV shows or laptop+HDMi cable+audio cable, old video games and their consoles.

Submitter's Suggestions:

Be sure to give plenty of time to cook the food. Also, make sure you're able to watch the videos. iTunes doesn't let you burn downloaded video to a DVD.
