The Pacific Southwest Association of Realtors (PSAR), a trade group for San Diego-area realtors with offices in El Cajon and Chula Vista, will host its first-ever PSAR Realtor Games from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, June 23, at Scobee Park, 2390 Boswell Road in Chula Vista’s EastLake community. Proceeds will benefit South Bay Community Services and HomeAid San Diego.
The Realtor Games will feature 16 teams of PSAR members competing in mental and physical challenges. The competition will include such agility activities as sack race, free-throw contest, balloon catch and cornhole, as well as mental games, including spelling bee, board puzzle and Realtor Feud, a game resembling TV’s “Family Feud.” Another competition will consist of “Jenga,” a game of skill featuring players taking turns removing one wooden block at a time from a tower constructed of several dozen blocks (the name Jenga is derived from a Swahili word meaning “build”).
Entry fee is $250 per team. Contestants will receive a 2017 Realtor Games event t-shirt featuring sponsor names. Spectator admission is $20 per person, which includes a taco plate, beverage and raffle ticket. Scobee Park is named in honor of Francis R. “Dick” Scobee (1939-1986), who was a Challenger Spacecraft Commander aboard the ill-fated Space Shuttle Challenger, which suffered catastrophic booster failure at 73 seconds after the launch on Jan. 28, 1986.
