The Great Teapot Exchange - Trade It Up!
Our emcee introduces the activity and distributes area maps and teapots to each team. Teams have a limited amount of time to scour the city, make trades and bring back the most valuable item(s) possible. Along the journey, teams take photos of each transaction to document the adventure. They may not use their own money or trade anything other than the teapot and items obtained from trades of the teapot. When teams return, they decorate a storyboard of their journey and promote the final item(s) that they collected. Teams have the opportunity to donate their winnings to a local charity for use in their silent auction or other fundraiser. Bragging rights and novelty prizes are awarded to teams that return the finest bounty and/or had the greatest adventure.
Items We Have Seen Teapots Traded For Include:
- Cell Phones
- Baseball Tickets
- Meals at Restaurants
- Deluxe Car Rentals
- Health Club Memberships
- Sports Equipment and Clothing.
"From my communication with Linda, I was confident we both understood the logistics of the event - teams writing their own lyrics relating to their work, costumes, etc. and when I arrived and saw the extensive costumes available, I knew the teams were going to have great fun! "
