Sunday, 27 September 2015 was an Amazing day for Minis. All contestants were given an opportunity to go first. The fearless Terry took the chance and chose the first leg of the competition. Linda and Terry then successfully led all teams to the Beacon Hill Loop Rd and atop of Beacon Hill the first challenge was issued. All teams were well matched at Bocce, but the skilled team of Kathy and Richard won out in a sudden death playoff. Unfortunately, Andrew was recalled to the Bocce National Team and was unable to continue in the competition. Richard and Kathy demonstrated their athletic prowess taking the Welly tossing as well. Doug and Merville were like a well-oiled machine during the croquet challenge and overwhelmed all competitors. Terry and Linda realizing their chances were slipping away regrouped and crushed all comers in a challenging 1-hole Mini-putt competition. All competitors then recognized that Terry’s courage at the beginning of the competition payed off as he was able to select the clubs that each team used. It should be noted that without some errant navigation Kathy and Richard would have avoided a Championship playoff against Terry and Linda. However, Kathy and Richard demonstrated that they were indeed toss-ers (a play on words only) as they used their initiative to sock-it to Terry and Linda in a sock-toss-off to become the Champions of the 1st VMCC Amazing Race competition. Many thanks to all that attended and judging from the conversation, everyone enjoyed themselves.
Finally, a big thank you to Doug for using his fantastic imagination to create a great afternoon drive.
