Scouts test their skills on ‘The Amazing Race’

Twenty-six teams set out on “The Amazing Race” to visit 14 countries.

The teams comprised Boy Scout troops from the Three Rivers District and the race was at the district’s annual Spring Camporee.

During the race, teams had to complete both physical and mental challenges, including solving clues to figure out their next destination and figuring out how to lift a tire over a long pole in least than a minute.

Teams from throughout Anoka and Isanti counties competed in the race.

“The Scouts were from the Three Rivers District which is all of Anoka and Isanti counties,” said Jamie Lamprecht, Three Rivers District director. “We had 691 Scouts in attendance this weekend; it was our largest districtwide event.”
