Treetops Amazing Race – February 23 & 24, 2008

Based on the Emmy award-winning reality series airing on CBS, Treetops brings back its own version of the Amazing Race. This is the 4th annual event at Treetops, which was highly successful in 2007 when 12 teams of four raced across the resort and into downtown Gaylord and had an absolute blast.

New in 2008…

In an effort to include more teams, we will administer two separate races; one race for kids 13 and younger and an open race for kids/adults of any age. Proceeds from this year’s event will again benefit the athletic departments of Otsego County Schools such as Gaylord, Johannesburg-Lewiston, Vanderbilt and Gaylord St. Mary.

About The 2008 Race

Teams of four (4) will use teamwork that will test their physical and mental toughness to try to complete the race the fastest. Along the way there will be Roadblocks (a task only one team member will complete) and Detours (a choice between two tasks each with its pros and cons) that each team will need to complete to receive their next clue telling them where their next destination is. There will also be Pit Stops during the race. A Pit Stop is a mandatory rest period which insures that the team that gets the early lead is not guaranteed victory.

Kid’s Teams
Teams of four made up of kids age 13 and younger
. This race will begin at approximately 3pm on Saturday, February 23rd and conclude at approximately 7pm on Saturday, Feb. 23rd
