Taking a chance on Menno-poly

Kirsten Hamm-Epp |

With special “Menno-poly” Chance cards, five different Monopoly boards scattered throughout Saskatoon and fun team challenges, the Mega Menno Monopoly Rally kick-off got groups excited for another year of youth events in Saskatchewan. The event took place on Sept. 9, 2016, at Mount Royal Mennonite Church, with about 40 youth and sponsors from eight different congregations participating. After a fairly epic game of musical chairs, teams were off to find the Pokémon-, Star Wars-, Saskatoon-, Red Green- and Simpsons-themed boards, each located at a different house. Upon arrival, teams had to compete in a fun challenge before playing the board. With a time-cap and prizes on the line, it was a race to the finish. One lucky team won movie passes and free tickets to the next youth event—a Tim Neufeld and the Glory Boys Hootenanny concert held on Oct. 9. To conclude the rally, Ryan Siemens, Mennonite Church Saskatchewan’s area church minister, offered a prayer of blessing for each individual group, as well as the larger collective youth body.
