This was a brand new challenge involving TEAMS. Each person had to pick a team member in which they had specific tasks they both had to complete for points. In some cases the teams were only a few miles apart or family members, while others were separate by the ocean! They had to pick a teammate that was part of the RAC. It was a great success!

Betsy & Zoe Lirakis  (Total Team Points: 3030)

2nd Place:  (We had a TIE!)
Susan Lejonhud & Angie Gaines
Donna Wilson & Dana Leibfried

Suggested by one of our RACers, Dana Leibfried, this was new to the RAC. Each participant had to decorate their curly and post a photo to the RAC blog to be voted on by the public. Each person got 50 bonus points for just participating. The winner won a Curly Tshirt.

Tiffany Beechinor is the winner!
