    Office outing planning

    Looking for ideas for an office outing. Figured you have probably been part of a few, what are some of the good ones? We have 25 people and around a $1200 budget.

    It's cheap and a good bonding experience...

    Some ideas:
    bowling, lazer tag, golfing, BBQ/picnic, baseball game, canoe trip

    Golfing. Done. Even if guys don't golf they can drive around in the carts and drink. Everyone wins.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Office outing planning

    When I lived out East, we once went to Gettysburg. It was somewhat interesting, but my favorite part was taking in the history of the Battle of Schrute Farms. It was a long drive but we had movies on the way out so it was pretty cool.

    Re: Office outing planning

    most people are late 20's early 30's. We've done golf outings before and baseball games. Looking for something we haven't done. I'm interested in this canoe trip, is this from experience? details?

    I'd actually say rent that go-cart track down in Knoxville for a few hours. Internet price said $335/hour. Looked pretty cool.

    I was asking the age because that can play into how much physcial activity or adventuress the crowd might be. I haven't personally done a canoe trip with coworkers but I have went with friends. I have went canoeing around des moines so I can't really help with places to go around here.

    Re: Office outing planning

    I guess I should also mention, our office is in West Des Moines with most of our team being local. Indianola and Ankeny are about as far as people travel to work, so East Coast may be a bit too far

    Had a BBQ at Green Castle Rec Area south of marshalltown. Brought a bunch of yard games, had it catered...and made sure to bring a keg. Was a good time.

    Shelter house at a rec area catered with the option to camp if you felt like it is an idea we have been knocking around.

    Yoga pants camp-out?


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    You clearly don't know half the people I work with.
