A night of friendly competition is planned for Aug. 23 at the Lincoln Highway Experience in Unity.

Starting at 6 p.m., the “Thinkin’ Lincoln Summer Classic” will feature fun individual and team competitions both outside and in the museum’s new addition.

Individual games will include basketball, fold a pie box and the Monopoly-inspired Lincoln Highway road trip board game. The regular Monopoly properties are replaced with landmarks from the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor, says office manager Yvonne Stack.

Two-person teams also can compete in croquet, cornhole, Jenga and something called Route 66, the watered-down highway — which probably will involve squirt guns, Stack says. The regulation-size cornhole boards were custom-made and also decorated in a Lincoln Highway theme.

The evening also will feature dinner provided by vendors from the Lincoln Highway SupperMarket, held Wednesday evenings during the summer (weather permitting) on the museum grounds.

A ticket is $55 for a two-person team or $27.50 for an individual. Reservations are needed by Aug. 20.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
