Oregon Trail Game Live 2013
Teams of four will face challenges like hunting, grave digging, caulking and floating their wagons (actually cleverly decorated take-out containers) and carrying 200 pounds of meat.
For those who wish to break a sweat, Courthouse Athletic Club will offer the Grueling Pace Challenge, with period-somewhat-accurate tasks like carrying wood and doing old-timey calisthenics.
Willamette Heritage Center at the Mill, in conjunction with the Statesman Journal, Willamette University, the Cherry City Derby Girls, Courthouse Athletics, and more have teamed up for the day.
Registration begins at noon and challenges start at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21 at WHC, 1313 Mill St. SE in Salem, Oregon. Team of four (or two adults and up to three children) cost $25 for the early-bird registration period (Aug. 1 to 16); $30 for regular registration and $50 day-of, if slots are available. There is an additional $10 cost to participate in the Grueling Pace Challenge.
Spectators are $5 adults, $3 ages 12 and younger, free for ages 3 and younger.
