Icey what you built there

Sun 14 Feb
Report written by Russell

This week’s lockdown challenge was to make the most of the snow that had fallen in Essex and find any snow sculptures people had built whilst trying to not slip over on the ice rinks our local parks had become.

Fay, Rich, Laurie and myself found some of the rather sparse snowmen dotted around and Rich also managed to get a picture of a Robin. But the best find has to go to Fay who found a rather large Igloo on her dog walk that clearly took a lot of time and dedication to build. Well done Fay!!

It’s Snow Joke

What sculptures can you find?

This week’s lockdown challenge is very simple, and you won’t even need to track any activities to take part. All you have to do is make the most of the rare snow that has fallen in Essex and take pictures of any snowpeople you find on your daily lockdown exercise. Little or large, with carrot noses or looking slightly melty, you can submit one picture or fifty, it’s up to you... (Might be something to get done at the start of the week before the snow all melts though.)

You can send any pics you take to me directly or via email (russell@goodgym.org) or if you put them on Strava I’m sure I’ll find them. The deadline is 6pm Sunday and maybe we’ll have a Sunday evening voting session for the best one found as well!!

Good luck everyone!!!

Two Satsumas or a signed picture of Nigel Farage?

Wed 16 Dec
Report written by Russell

This, like most 2020 Social Distancing events, our Chelmsford GoodGym Christmas party went online this year. Thanks to the magic of Zoom Conferencing there was no need for a Face Mask, I’m sure Matt Hancock would approve. Whilst we waited for everyone to join, David had been Stock Piling some charades which we played!! I had clearly forgotten you shouldn’t talk when whilst playing. Thankfully Fay was like a seasoned pro, saving peoples blushes and making outstanding guesses from some rather dodgy mimes.

Once everyone had joined the call, David's excellent quiz began (and I mean excellent, pub landlords everywhere would have been proud!!). The first round was a very tough ‘General Knowledge’ round. Jenny stormed into an early lead thanks to her encyclopaedic knowledge of Christmas films getting 9/10 in the second round; ‘Where is Santa From?’ Only let down by having not watched classic Christmas horror ‘Silent Night’.

Most of us struggled on the ‘Whose Xmas Tree is This?’ round; picking which celebrity each Christmas tree belonged to, even with it being multiple choice it was a struggle, who would have guessed Britney Spears home would look like that! Andy had to depart for another pressing engagement half way through but luckily Rich joined in to say hi and conveniently took his place, well timed Rich.

The fourth round was ‘2020’ consisting of anagrams of various things that were popular in 2020 and remembering some famous faces who have unfortunately, and some rather untimely, left us this year; Chadwick Boseman, Maradona, Kirk Douglas, Sean Connary and Kobe Bryant. The last round was my favourite; ‘Real or False’, guessing which of the presents David had received for Christmases gone by. The highlights for me included the drainpipe(?!) and Only Fools and Horses dressing gown. Lovely Jubbly!!

The scores were totted up whilst we played more charades, it was a two horse race with only half a point in it… Had Jenny kept up her early quiz pace……

The short answer is no. Laurie had managed to claw her way back was declared the winner! Well done Laurie!!!!

Thanks for a wonderful quiz David, it really was outstanding! Everyone should definitely go and give you lot of Christmas Cheers!!!!

EDIT - I can't let it go without saying - a big and well deserved 'well done' to our amazing area activator Russell! Took on the reigns in a trying time and is smashing it so far. A unanimous and worthy winner who gets his name on the coveted 'Goodgymer of the year' trophy!

And lastly I hope you all have a wonderful a Christmas as you can have during what has been a strange and difficult year. See you all in the New Year! Roll on 2021!!!!

Have a mince pie and have a laugh

As we can't all visit Zorba's this year we'll be having a zoom game session instead. We might not be able to meet in person but we will still be able to have fun from the comfort of our own homes and play some festive games being led by the one and only David. Grab a mince pie and some mulled wine and have a little festive cheer GoodGym style!

The zoom link will be emailed out about half an hour before the session. Hope to see many of you there.

S.K.P.

Wed 25 Nov
Report written by Russell

7 GoodGym Chelmsford runners enjoyed a virtual escape room courtesy of McMillian. We were split into four cells and had to work together to crack the codes and escape the prison we had found ourselves in. Safe to say we did struggle early on, getting completely stumped on the second puzzle and having to use the two clues provided. But once we were out of the cells and Andy had to leave we raced through the remaining 5 puzzles to escape the prison with fantastic teamwork and impressive ease. I’m sure this had nothing to do with Andy's departure. Great work team.

You can still donate to the McMillan cause here if you have not already done so to support people living with Cancer.

Lockdown escape!

After last weeks workout being a roaring success we are continuing the Wednesday virtual meet ups during lockdown 2 with a virtual escape room courtesy of Macmillan. As Macmillan have done all the hard work to make the game we have set up a justgiving page here, if you do play with us please make a donation to them.

If it’s anything like their murder mystery we did in lockdown 1 it’s sure to be a laugh!!
