Stacking Relay Race, 4 teams of 4, plus an extra.   This was a straight-up 30 – 40 yard dash with a cinder block, each team member adding a block to the end-to-end stack, and returning to tag a team-mate.  Teams ran a 5th leg to make sure everyone had a chance. Team Bogie, DQ, Swiftie and Backstreet won by a slight margin.
