For the last couple of years, Guy and Cynthia participated in a local "Amazing Race" event called the Calgary City Chase. They really enjoyed it in past years, so we decided to join, along with Harjit (who filled in for Guy) and a bunch of others.
The city chase had us solving puzzles and racing through the city to complete various events. You can choose to either complete 10 events as fast as possible, or complete as many events as possible before 16:00 (which is what we chose since we were more interested in doing the actual events!! :)).
We surprisingly only completed 12 of the 23 possible events since we decided to all stick together and make it more of a social event. We burned up a bunch of time waiting over an hour in line for the Zorbing event.. not an optimal decision if you're trying to "race".. but we didn't care - we were all just super excited to finally try Zorbing!! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zorbing)
It was definitely the best event we did that day. We zorbed in pairs up the hill, navigated around the pylon, and the rolled all the way back downhill as fast we could. We won against the other team in our race and laughed so hard the entire time while bouncing and falling overtop of each other. So much fun!
The day was a great success - wonderful company, lots of laughs, and we even lucked out with perfect sunny weather!
