Raising Cane

An impossible challenge!

Get a 6 foot long cane from a garden shop. It needs to be nice and light. A broomstick or heavier cane will not work.

Now ask your guests to form into teams of 4 or 6.
The first team comes up to the front and stands in two lines facing each other.

Now ask them to raise their hands to waist level and stick out a finger on both hands as if pointing.
Then place the cane on top of the fingers so it is touching everyone's fingers (with no exceptions).

There is one simple objective - for the team to lower the cane to the ground. Everybody's fingers must stay in contact with the cane, and nothing else can touch the can, otherwise you must start again from the top.

This sounds easy, but is almost impossible to do. To everyone's amazement and mirth, the cane will actually rise up!

As the first teams fails, ask your next team to try the challenge and continue until you all give up in frustration.

Sounds cool, but why dose the cane go up? My partys only in 2 weeks but it can be done! You just need tall people in the middle and team work

It requires a lot of team work and strategy. It's harder than it sounds but it gets a laugh and people working together!

I didn't beleive this until we tried it. At the party we had a team of 4 girls try first, and of course the cane went up, with the men jeering - until they tried, and found that they couldn't do it either - great fun
