Dads' Bucket List Checklist Challenge - Saturday - Moms please kick Dad and kids out of the house to join us.

Are you up for the Challenge? The Heneghan Boys are in.

There's only one day until the inaugural Checklist Challenge takes place on March 1st and the staff at Dads' Bucket List want to answer some common questions we've received.  On line registration closes tonight but registration is available Saturday in person for $10.00 more.
  1. Start Times - We are allowing registrants to show up any time during the day (event runs from 9am-4pm).  This should allow participants to minimize any schedule conflicts.  For planning purposes, we anticipate that peak attendance will be from late morning to early afternoon.  To minimize waits, each obstacle is designed to handle at least two teams (each team = you + your kids) at a time.
  2. Time at Event - We expect most people to spend about two hours at the event, but you're welcome to stick around as long as you'd like.
  3. Location - Cagle's Family Farm, 355 Stringer Rd., Canton, GA 30115 (Click for directions). Please follow Stringer Road until you see Cagle's Parking entry sign.
  4. Attire - Wear something comfortable and appropriate for being outdoors (think jeans and sneakers). We don't anticipate you'll get too dirty, but we don't recommend wearing your finest formal wear.  Event will take place rain or shine so please check forecast.
  5. Food - We will provide each team with a beverage and popcorn token.  The concession stand will be open if you would like to purchase additional food and drinks.
  6. Questions - Please e-mail us at with other event questions.  If you need to reach us on event day, you can contact the event organizer, Matt Boettcher at 678-641-6942 (Can you say, "White. Glove. Service."?)
The obstacle names shown in the header above may be a little cryptic to figure out, but that's the point. When you show up with your kids we want you to be surprised with the different challenges you'll be able to attempt (and, of course, we don't want you pros practicing in the days leading up to it).

This event is an opportunity to connect with your kids through an undeniably unique shared experience.  It's also a chance to connect with other fathers outside of the workplace.  And if that's not enough, it's also a great excuse to give mom some time off. For those keeping score, that's 3 birds, 1 stone.  Sound like good enough reason to get some friends to join you?  Please send them to these links below.

A final personal note about Dads' Bucket List and tomorrow's Checklist Challenge. The concept for Dads' Bucket List started because we wanted to do the following:

Have unique experiences with our kids
Create connections & networking opportunities with other professionals
Give mom a break

I believe that being a father is the most important title that each of us carries. The Checklist Challenge has been planned by dads and is for dads (and their kids, of course). There will likely be hiccups at the event. If you see them, please try not to complain but commit to pitch in and help us fix them.

I hope you enjoy tomorrow's Checklist Challenge.

Go. See. Be. Do.

This seems to be very interesting kids events. Are these events still running?
