Sports afternoon/BBQ/Piss up original suggestions.

I have been given the task of organising a BBQ on a wednesday (so including sports afternoon) for around 50-100 people. I could just let people play football etc then have BBQ and drink beer but ideally I should make the best of the opportunity and do something a bit more creative. Some element of competition maybe.
Anyway i'm sure people here have had experience of events that have went well so i'm after ideas!
Potted sports.

eg, tug of war, sprint relay, throwing wet sponges at the chain of command, a bit of Saturnalia, beer and BBQ.

Bed by midnight, officially, and a 5 mile run at 0730.
Cricket. Over 30's v under 30's. Everyone gets a chance to bowl, everyone gets a chance to bat, pick your own suitable maximum number of fielders allowed, bowlers must do a stint of fielding before they can bowl. There will be at least one obnoxious git who you know will contest the official result, so make them responsible for keeping the score.

Beer/cider is an integral part of this, it will not work without it
Involve the families and ensure the junior officers mingle with everybody and ensure they dont forget their wallets, SNCOs/Officers against juniors. also again get the families to join whichever side they want
Dragon boat racing, medicine ball volleyball, British bulldog, off ground "it", strip poker, shopping trolley jousting, burning puppy juggling.

Use you imagination for fucks sake.
