Jackie getting ready for Gold Creek Church-The Amazing Race.
Second task: one team member had to sit on a skateboard while the rest of the team pushed and pulled them from the back parking lot behind the church to the front entrance drive. Of course with the girls being last Jackie had to sit her butt on the smallest skateboard the would not go straight.
Third task: The entire team had to run down to Island Time to earn a number of tickets playing skeeball and other similar arcade games.
Fifth task: We had to run back up to Gold Creek Community Church to scoop up 10 goldfish from a kiddy pool either with a frying pan or our bare hands.
Sixth task: Our next clue led us to Willis Tucker Park playground. We found the last #10 clue on the spiderweb structure.
Eighth task: This clue was hard. No google search would help. Britton thankfully recalled this place on Hwy 9 that had a beach volleyball court. Bottega Fitness Personal Training had an obstacle course set up the entire team had to do.
Thirteenth task: This was the toughest obstacle yet. The reason why we were told to wear something we didn’t mind getting wet. As we reached the backyard of this home, we were told the entire team had to get in the pool to collect 10 rubber duckies with our team number on them. Sara, Autumn and I quickly got down to our bathing suits and waded into the FREEZING cold pool for find the rubber duckies marked with a #10 on the bottom in the middle of the pool. Some of the other ladies waded into shallow end to find rubber duckies on the edge. It was so cold! We blasted the heat once we got our next clue.
Fourteenth task: This next clue really tripped us up saying it’s a popular destination on the 11th of July. We were thinking 4th of July at Silver Lake or something. The boys saw our car in the empty parking lot right when the date clued us in. 7-11! We drove over and sucked down a slurpee.
Fifteenth task: The next clue tripped us all up for a bit. A popular grocery store with international items. It took re-reading the top title: Market in the Middle. Central Market! The boys really lost time with this one. They were in first place. They went to Trader Joe’s before figuring it out.
