With a backpack full of snacks, water, cell phone and maps, Ryan and I will end this whirlwind of a week by competing in our local Amazing Race tomorrow. We enter this competition with little information and preparation. My grandiose plan of t-shirts, capes and marathon study sessions ended with a broken dishwasher and residual exhaustion from the About.com Awards.
From what we know about the race, we start by answering trivia questions about Charlotte. If answered correctly, we get to take off minutes from our final time. At 9:15am, we take off in search of clues of specific locations in Charlotte, take a photo and then find check-in stations to turn in our pictures. Sounds easy right?
It is not too late to donate to our team, you may contact Margot Howell at Margot.Howell@mecklenburgcountync.gov. All proceeds will be used for the 2011 Summer Camp Scholarship Fund for Mecklenburg County Parks and Recreation's Therapeutic Recreation Department. To date, we have raised $230.
Wish us luck!
