The weekend of our 2nd Annual Amazing Race was so much fun! Campers filled the campground Friday, getting set-up & comfortable before chowing down on some delicious home-style cookin’ served under the pavilion. Later that evening, everyone was invited to watch the movie “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life” – a hilarious film about a boy who has to transfer schools and learn how to follow the rules…hence “the worst years of his life”.
The next morning brought us our Amazing Race!! Now this was something you definitely didn’t want to miss! Contestants gathered under the pavilion to get the “low down” on the race before they were sent out to compete against each other. Teams were given a clue in the form of a riddle at the beginning of the race telling them what location to go to around the campground. Once each team figured out their clues and ran to the right location, they were given a task to complete – when completed, teams would get another clue to figure out for the next stop in the race. Each location had a different task to perform, from trying to remember a picture & drawing it perfectly, completing in a 3-legged egg & spoon race, answering trivia questions and more! Teams had to hurry though! There were elimination rounds throughout the course, narrowing down our contestants until we had our final 3 teams. Coming in 1st place was Team Curry, winning a Shenandoah Acres gift basket filled with all kinds of goodies to enjoy! 2nd place went to Team Times Up, winning a certificate for 2 Free Nights of Camping along with a gift certificate to The Acres Eatery and our 3rd place prize went to Team Marsh, winning a certificate for 2 Free Nights of Camping. Congratulations to our winners!! A big thank you goes to everyone who came, participated and volunteered in the Amazing Race – we hope y’all had just as much fun as we did!
Later that evening, Baby Girl’s Karaoke joined us for a chance to become a STAR! Campers of all ages picked their song and belted out their tune for our listening pleasure! We had a great time tearing up the dance floor to all the different genres of music and songs that everyone picked. You guys really know how to have a good time!
We took a short break from singing to draw our 50/50 Raffle. The lucky winner took home $452!! Congratulations!!!
To close out our weekend everyone was invited to “the church with no walls” to hear a wonderful message delivered by Theresa Moore titled “Trust God”.
All-in-all we had a fun filled weekend here at The Acres watching movies, competing in the Amazing Race and singing our hearts out! Thank you to everyone who came and camped with us this weekend – we hope to see y’all again soon!!
