Solana Pacific community takes on Amazing Quest

Teams from Solana Pacific School were tested in their yogurt creation skills, tie-tying ability and found out whether or not they are Vulcans last Friday in the Amazing Quest to Save a Teacher.

The teams took off from the school’s athletic field. It was a mad dash for clues and an exercise in team building as each group raced to complete their challenges.

Lynne Bath organized the event, a fundraiser for Solana Pacific. She has had three children attend Solana Pacific – her oldest is now in sixth grade. She had the idea for the Amazing Quest challenges three years ago when she organized the first fundraiser of this kind for the school. The idea was inspired by popular reality TV shows, “Amazing Race” and “Survivor.”

Since she’d turned the idea into her own company, Amazing Quest LLC. She now professionally organizes fundraisers for charity groups and for corporate team-building events.

Two hundred people on 38 teams competed in the race, which involved 798 clues and stops at 21 stations.

The fifth- and sixth-grade teacher teams crossed the finish line close together. But the sixth-grade teacher team did not have their balloon from Red Robin, so the crowd voted to crown the fifth-grade teacher team the winners.

The family teams came in with the Ham family in first place, the Glenn family in second and Jackie and Harrison Cohen, Randy and Bailey Buckley, Christian Grange and Andre Reed in third.
