Bad to the Bone Buckeyes take third at Virginia BeachChristy Penland McMillan and her team from Newcomerstown traveled to Virginia Beach over the weekend to compete in the first-ever Virginia Beach Adventure Race, and though they didn't come in first place, they had a great time trying.The event, planned by the Virginia Beach Convention and Tourism Bureau and modeled after CBS's hit television show, "The Amazing Race," was designed to draw attention to all the fun things tourists can do in the resort town.McMillan's team, made up of Christy, her husband, Roy, their daughter, Cydney, 15, and family friend Kylee Kustrin, 15, competed in a number of events including the beach to sea relay, which involved running on the beach, a three-legged race and a sea kayak race around buoys in the surf, followed by one member of the team -- in this case, Cydney -- surfing the waves on a paddle board; the scavenger hunt along a three-mile section of the boardwalk followed by a bicycle race, a trivia contest at the aquarium and a crab cracking contest, in which team Buckeye got first place; a cooking contest involving local ingredients and an obstacle course.After the first day, McMillan knew her team had made it into the second day's competition, along with four other teams. Bad to the Bone Buckeyes did not come in first, but McMillan said that didn't bother her team. "We were so proud!" she said. "It was so much fun; we conquered! We feel great because the adults in the other teams were younger than we were, and we still came in third!"The winning team, team TNT from North Carolina, was chosen by points. TNT had 29 points at the end of the weekend, the second place team, Team Keenan from California, had 27 points, and the Buckeyes had 26 points."Not bad at all!" McMillan said. "We'd do it again!"
