Tonight we’re announcing two of the five challenges. Stay tuned, as we will announce a new challenge every day over the course of the next three days. We’ll kick off the first challenge by throwing it back to last year’s finals cash-in. Doesn’t look like much? Don’t let her fool ya … she’s been around the block and she’s a real heart breaker.
Our second challenge is a two part beast. A balancing act of strength and stamina.
Standards and details for each challenge are below. While you are not being judged for standards, a coach must be present for each attempt. We trust that all will play fair, abide by the honor system, and score as accurately as possible.
Have a go at it and best of luck to ya’ll!
