Reynolds Plantation Nights
Our meeting planner was trying to come up with a team building event that her company president, a huge fan of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, would be excited about for her small group of 15 directors staying at Reynolds Plantation.
How it worked.
It was “go time!” We created Reynolds Plantation Nights, which pitted 3 teams of 5 people against one another. Teams had to decorate and don racing jumpsuits, then create a racecar named and fashioned after one of their clients (not Wonder Bread). Teams’ imaginations ran as wild as Ricky Bobby’s cougar with the designs. But in the end, it was their hearts that were racing as they headed towards the finish line. Each car was driven by one person and propelled by two-man horsepower. It was more than just speed that counted – they also had to complete several pit stops with their other teammates along the way. When the checkered flag was waved the president was thrilled and the meeting planner was able to do a victory lap.
