The challenge of the day went to the obstacle course lined out next to the old elementary school as part of the Fall Festival. Contestants had to jump forward in a personal sack race, get out of the sack and kick a soccer ball, crawl between cones and then do some jumping rope. Most of the contestants made it through the course but it often took a little bit of help from the Meeker Recreation Center staff.
