AMAZING RACE

I have been taking this Park Host thing pretty seriously.  This was my biggest project yet.

                      AMAZING RACE

It was about 35*C but nine family teams came out.
I had 8 stations around the park with tasks to complete.  Some for the adults and others for children to complete.
This was the recycling station.  The little ones had a small bag of recycling to sort.  Parents could cheer them on.
 As this holiday weekend was our BC day, the race was BC Day themed with questions about British Columbia.

The last station was a run in the lake.  Everyone enjoyed that one even though this lake is always freezing cold.

Fun was had by everyone.  McDonalds certificates were the prizes and everyone got a bottle of water and a big chocolate bar.

And the winners were twins Joey and Derek, Michelle and their Dad, Greg.

You are definitely an amazing organizer. I bet everyone had such a great time. Even the run in the cold lake. Looking forward to when you guys can head south. We'll be there next month.
