Amazing Attendance at Family Games Night

| March 16, 2016


Family Games Night was another great success for their 6th year, with a new record breaking attendance of 436 people.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

A new attendance record was set at the 6th annual Family Games Night! 436 people stepped in to the big gym at the Fox Creek School to participate in a wide variety of groovy games, win great prizes and visit with friends.

The large crowd enjoyed a fun-filled evening of good old fashioned play, cookies and milk, fellowship and excitement, all thanks to the sponsorship of the Community Resource Centre (CRC), the CHAMPS (Community Helpers and Mentoring Program) team, CHIPS (Children’s Indoor Playground Society), Alberta Sustainable Resources and the Fox Creek Municipal Library.

The games included: the traditional, handmade, over-sized Crokinole board, giant dominoes and Connect 4, plus B-I-N-G-O, different Scrabble games, the handmade giant Kerkplunk, Elephun, Hungry Hippos, limbo, bowling, bean bag toss, headbandz, hoppin’, poppin’ spaceballs, uno moo, fishing for tires, honey bee fun, Rebound and Twister.

Kids also had a chance to play with a hoola hoop, do a little jump rope and play a life size game of Angry Birds.

The door prizes were donated by the CRC, CHIPS, the Fox Creek School and Municipal Library. The  winners were:

  • Eva Thesen
  • Natalie Fischer
  • Michael Donovan
  • Zaran MacKay
  • Caden Pictou
  • Sydney Sheppard
  • Cee-Jay Parker
  • Charlie Bergen

“Thank you for a great night and a special thanks to our volunteers for helping run the games,” said Librarian Leslie Ann Sharkey.



He traditionally makes a new game every year, however new this year, Mr. Richard Sharkey made a coat rack for the families.
