A record-breaking day
October 20, 2009 Bill Crotty
November 9 marks the annual Break a Guinness World Record Day, so what are you waiting for? Start organizing now to get your name in the record books.
There are plenty of records that would be fun to break with a group, and some that would just be interesting to attempt. Make sure to take plenty of pictures for the photo albums, and don't do anything too dangerous.
Do you like miniature golf? Do you really, really like it? You could set the record for the most miniature golf holes played in 24 hours, which currently stands at 1,140. The record was set by two teams of four players in Germany in 2005.
How about a drumming marathon? The current record for individual consecutive drumming was set this March in Sacramento, California, and stands at 120 hours. Remember to hydrate!
Recruit some Facebook friends for this one - the largest water balloon fight on record consisted of 2,849 participants. If you think you could gather a group to rival that crowd, have at it!
Do you love desserts? Perhaps you and a (very large) group of friends could bake the world's largest tiramisu. The record for this colossal treat is currently set at over 1,724 pounds.
Hand out a few copies of the Guiness Book of World Records as party favors to thank your guests for playing along.
