Apple-Azing Race: "I Scream, You Scream: A Mystery a la Mode" by Wendy Lyn

Apple-azing Race Photo's at Lapack's Orchard

All photo’s on this blog post were taken by Michelle Cross Photography. Michelle did a fantastic job shooting each event so I’ll be able ‘illustrate’ each challenge for you! If you want to order any photo’s from the race follow these instructions:

  1. go to www.michellecrossphotography.blogspot.com
  2. Click ‘clients’
  3. Click ‘Apple-Azing Race Gallery’

Each challenge was named after a book to follow along with the fact that we were raising money for the Poynette Area Public Library. I’m going to blog about each challenge – the clue to find the challenge, the challenge itself and exactly what each team had to do at each challenge.

At this point teams have gotten lost in a maze, completed an obstacle course, put together a wine press, created a scarecrow, pressed some cider the old fashioned way, eaten half a dozen donuts, and organized a box of books.  They had just one last fun challenge:

"I Scream, You Scream:  A Mystery a la Mode" by Wendy Lyn Watson Challenge Clue

Hop in your car and make your way to the next challenge screaming, “You Scream, I Scream”.

Decide on the 1 team member that will participate in this challenge. Don’t forget your duck!

From this clue that had to determine that they needed to head to Sassy Cow Creamery…just 11 minutes from the apple orchard.

One member of your team must turn in the duck at the counter of Sassy Cow Creamery. You will get a plate of ice cream which you need to take to the picnic table area. Apple-azing Race Photo's at Lapack's OrchardSee how fast you can eat your ice cream without using your hands! Once your plate is cleaned – gather your next clue.

Ice Cream Eating 

Of course – it couldn’t have been a nice warm day…it was FREEZING that morning and I made them all stick their faces into a nice cold place of ice cream!  It does look like they all had a good time though!
