To take advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday as a great opportunity
for my hall to get together, I came up with a fun activity to precede
our Thanksgiving dinner. I wrapped a 11 pound turkey in plastic
wrap (to protect it) and took my hall out to the quad of our campus
right around dinner time. Everyone had a chance to toss the
turkey onto the quad. The women stuck a marker into the ground
where their toss landed. The furthest toss took the bird as a
prize! Then we all went to the dining hall to eat a thanksgiving
Advertise well in advance(some residents even told their parents to
not buy a turkey in case they won!)
A large turkey
Plastic wrap (I used the whole roll to protect the bird)
