I found a fun activity for our first G.O.M. gathering.

Horsemen take part in a Kok-boru, or goat dragging, competition as part of Navruz, an ancient holiday marking the spring equinox, celebrations in the capital Bishkek March 21, 2010. Kok-boru is a traditional Central Asian game which is considered to be Kyrgyzstan'snational sport. Players grab a goat carcass from the ground in full gallop and try to place it into their opponents' goal, who attempt to foil the attack by snatching the headless goat away and score for their side.
