In a week exploring “The Art of Play,” Chautauquans of all ages were invited to take part in the CHQ Olympics. The friendly competition included an inflatable swan race, obstacle course, blindfolded longest-drive competition, Color Sprint, and a number of other events across the grounds. Winners were announced Friday, and we are pleased to publish the teams who placed in the top 10. (We would also like to note that a team from the Daily placed 14th out of 39 registered teams.)
