    Stag do

    So my friends ask me to be his best man!

    So i have to come up with something good for a stag do.

    He doesn't want any strippers, boozy things and stuff just some fun activities that can be done.

    So any suggestions would be awesome I don't think it will be possible to go abroad or anything. Most of the peeps are based in london.

    Now i have till august to prepare the best mans speech.......

    Paintballing is always fun.

    I mean... What chance do you usually get to shoot your friends?

    I had mine this last Saturday night and although not exactly what people now see as being a traditional stag do (we didn't go abroad, we didn't do anything like go-karting/paintballing etc, me and a load of mates simply went out did a few hours drinking and then went for a curry), it was exactly what I wanted, was cheap so lots of people could attend and was nicely restrained so I didn't end up a drunken mess (and on that basis my Dad felt comfortable coming as well) :-)

    Paintballing/go-karting/quad biking etc are all very well and good, but why not do something different....zorbing? Comedy night is always good as well.

    A Stag do without booze?! Are you on a wind up?!

    I'm off to Krakow in may. Much cheaper and better than anything in the uk.

    On recent stag do's I have been go karting twice, visited an adventure place where we shot air rifles, did some quad biking and something called "power turns" (basically a car with forward and back joysticks powering each wheel), and last but not least did a survival weekend.

    The weekend wood survival course was my favourite, and wasn't very boozy.

    I'm getting married next year, someone suggested the top gear challenge type stag dos. Buy a car for less than £100 and drive it to a destination, doing a couple of challenges on the way. There are companies who arrange them, or you could do it yourself.

    Personally I find outdoor laser tag to be more fun than paintball, as for novices in particular it removes the frustration of being 1-shotted right at the start of a round. A lot of the paintball places do it now as an alternative. Also means that if you happen to be going to a swimming pool immediately afterwards you won't get strange looks from everyone for being covered in welts, like we were at one stag do I attended.

    Go Ape is also really good fun if there's one near you.
