The Amazing Quest

Fun at a Carmel Valley Elementary School

What can possibly be more exciting than watching young kids, their parents, their teachers and other Carmel Valley San Diego community members, join up and take on some fun local challenges? There’s nothing kids love more than doing crazy and fun activities with friends and family. Any time you mix running, eating, and laughing with competitive spirited individuals, you are in for a real treat! If you’ve seen the video posted along with this article, you will not only see the fun I had, but the fun everyone experienced on May 6th, 2011 in the Carmel Valley San Diego community at our local Solana Pacific Elementary.
In short, “The Amazing Quest” is an event where teams are independently formed and race against other teams throughout the entire four hour event.  If you’ve ever watched “The Amazing Race” on TV, you know the similarities that exist between it and “The Amazing Quest (”  These teams then compete against each other by performing physical and mental challenges that utilize local public areas such as business and landmarks.  The intent of the event is to build more Carmel Valley San Diego community unity and help the participants further develop their team-work skills.
The event had its kick-off rally at the Solana Pacific Elementary auditorium.  The prior year’s winners were re-introduced and the event instructions were given.  All the energy and anticipation building inside all the participants was difficult to contain so the event coordinator quickly went through the formalities and instructed everyone to line up on the schools sports field.  At this point, the kids (and their parents) bolted out of the auditorium and headed for the field.  Once on the field, the teams lined up and prepared for the whistle to be blown.  Though the group had a foul-start to begin the event, no one seemed to care as the event was more than just about winning.  As I made my way to the different locations where the “challenges” where taking place, I could not help but smile because I knew that these kids where learning, getting exercise and bettering their team-work skills.  Solana Pacific Elementary of the Carmel Valley San Diego community, has held this event for five years in a row!  The team at “The Amazing Quest” and the school are already at work planning next year’s event.
