So much fun. Wouldn't change a thing. Loved the game Compatibility. Our table laughed so hard. The food was excellent.

It was a fun, interesting evening. Educational and worthwhile.

You all were so welcoming, thank you for having us.

The informative tour was so valuable. I love mixing education and fun!

Of all the Cencup events we have attended, this one is by far my favorite! Thanks Cencup for arranging an awesome experience.

A fabulous outing with fun and friendly people and an awesome time socializing and sharing a meal afterwards!!!!

Other than the rain, it was a great time!

The games were great for building our working together, were a lot of fun and loved having apps too!

WhirlyBall Competition

group whirlyball


You guys were great! It was our first experience, and I was very impressed at how well everything was run.

Loved the event! It was our first time! Love group activities where we can get a little competitive all in the name of fun!!

Valentine Snow Shoe

group at bonfire

Loved the activities - snow shoeing was fun as was kick sledding - even with the colder weather it was enjoyable - wish we didn't have to leave before it was over:/

Masquerade Ball

The music, food, dancing, and socializing was awesome! I would definitely do that again.

You always do a great job getting folks out of the comfort zone immediately and folks had no trouble getting warmed up to each other. Fully enjoy the age range from someone in their early 20's to those in their 80's and all having a blast!

Murder Mystery Dinner


It was fun to dress up! Greg and I both had fun prior to event talking about it and going out together to select the costumes. (spending more time together other than "dinner and movie" as you put it)

- Peg

We give last night's event (Murder Mystery) a 10 and would definitely do this type of event again. The theme was a blast and we enjoyed dressing up and so glad that so many other's dressed up as well - no need to feel silly - just enjoyed!

- Marcia

Thanks so much for the great time! Charmin and I enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be joining you again for another event. I'm not much of a murder mystery guy to be honest, but it was really about the enjoyment of other people and doing something different that won me over.

Twins Game

This was a beautiful night for a Twins game, but more important was the company and good times to be had!

Private Wine Tour / Tasting

FB group 3

A beautiful day was spent at Parley Lake winery with our new Cencup Friends. Our hosts, Jackie and Eric made it extra special with a white tablecloth, delicious snacks, and fun yard games & wine trivia. We met wonderful & interesting new people, and enjoyed the live music and art. And, who knew you can always learn more about wine?! Hope to visit this winery again and others in the future!

Kayaking & Picnic

IMG_4274 (2) copy



"When my husband Eric and I heard Cencup was offering a kayak trip down the Cannon River for couples, we immediately signed up.  The event was amazing!  Jackie and Eric planned the entire trip.  They secured the kayaks, snacks and beverages were ready for us when we arrived and everything was perfectly planned.  We all enjoyed a lazy day of kayaking and afterwards, we shared a nice picnic lunch with other Cencup couples.  We didn’t have to do a thing!  Everything was taken care of and perfectly timed.  What a delight!  Eric and I can’t wait for the next event.  Thank you, Jackie and Eric.  We have invited many other couples to sign up and join us.  We can’t wait for the next one!"
