The purpose of the Frozen Business Showdown is to bring the Fargo Park District’s mission into our business community.

Specific rules have been developed for each event and are included below. General rules and eligibility requirements are provided below.

  1. Each team must provide one volunteer. Teams who provide additional volunteers receive a 100-point bonus per additional volunteer. For scheduling purposes, volunteers are not able to participate in events and do not need to be employed by your organization. Teams whose required volunteer does not show up to the event are deducted 500 points. Additional volunteers that do not show up result in a 150-point deduction per absent volunteer. Volunteers must be available from 12:00-5:00 pm. the day of the event.
  1. Team members must be employed by the sponsoring company if the company has more than 50 employees. Companies with fewer than 50 employees can combine to create one team or include employee family members provided everyone participating is 18 or older. If you are unable to field a team from your pool of employees or you would like to combine three or more companies, please contact Tatiana Friese at the Fargo Park District.
  1. Team members can represent only one team.
