    It all started in Seattle with a crowd laughing and screaming. It was coming from the World Famous Pike Place Fish market.

    People watch FISH! once because its fun, but they watch it over and over because its message is fundamental to satisfying work

    and delighted customers. The key is in four choices that each of us is free to make every day: *Play, *Make Their Day, *Be There, and *Choose your Attitude. Many are using FISH! to increase

    retention, improve service, inspire passion, and boost performance. If these are goals in your workplace, then this is an

  • Geo-cache

    Whats Included: GPS receivers Bandanas Containers

    How it Works: The group has the option of a 10 to 20 clue hunt depending upon time allowed for the event. The group is divided into teams and each team will receive a team color, bandana and GPS receiver. Once the teams are divided, the facilitator will ask for team captains. The facilitator will meet with the captains to discuss the rules. Then, the captains are responsible for repeating the instructions to their respective team members. The teams may want to divide the responsibilities for the hunt: guide, scribe, navigator, organizer, and riddle master. Each team starts with a way-point, a marked location on the property, and the receiver only gets you within about 15-20 meters away from the marked waypoint. The cache is hidden from geo-cachers to increase the challenge and fun and team members work together to solve the caches clues. As they solve their caches, team members make notes of the places and items they have found at each waypoint. The first team back at the start with the most correct caches wins!

    Geo-caching is an outdoor activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver to hide and seek containers (called

    "geo-caches" or "caches"). A typical cache is a container containing a log-book and/or items for trading (we suggest company-branded products or

    trinkets). Geo-caching is most often described as a game of high-tech hide and seek.

    Join the fun of a high-tech, treasure hunt on 55-acres of a scenic estate. Geo-caching is a fun group activity fostering a strong sense of

    community and support for the environment. Or you can gear the caches toward your business whether it is a product launch or guiding
