Outdoor Adventures is a NIC class where students can experience different activities. In order to take the class you have to be a Junior or a Senior. Some activities include beach volleyball, horse shoes, golf, pickleball, fly fishing, skiing/snowboarding, kayaking, paddle boarding, spike ball, tennis, cornhole, hiking, hockey, ice-skating and frisbee golf.

On October 2nd, students played horseshoes, the average game is 7-10 minutes.Everyone had a partner during the game.

They would stand across from each other and try to throw two horseshoes each into the pitching box. The goal of the game is to try to get the horseshoe around the pole or near the pole. If you get a horseshoe around the pole, it is called a ringer and you receive 3 points. If no one gets a ringer than whoever is closest to the pole will get a point. Although, in order to receive a point it has to be, at most, the size of a horseshoe away from the pole. If it is more than the size of a horseshoe, then you don’t receive a point. According to the actual rules of horseshoes, the first team or player to receive 21 points will win. Outdoor Adventures is a great class to take. Instead of sitting in a classroom and doing busy work, you get to go do things you may have never done. Always remember to dress for the occasion.

 This class played at 8:00 in the morning with temperatures of high 30’s. As you can assume, the horseshoes were very cold due to the fact that they are made out of metal. No matter what the temperature is, the class will most likely go outside and continue what was planned for the day. Students who take the class seem to have fun and like the class because it’s a bunch of activities they love or haven’t gotten the chance to do.
