Event organizers Walter and Jan Palmer and Mark Gilchrist completed the four events of Take the Lake X-TREME! Saturday, ensuring they receive the coveted John A. McNeill and Lee J. Greer awards, as well as the uber-coveted X-TREME! award.
But better, this also means they will be free to manage the X-TREME! next Saturday, August 23 at Dale's Restaurant, Lake Waccamaw.
Taking their sweet time, the trio enjoyed perfect weather - with a brief storm at lunchtime - cycling 21 miles, swimming 4 miles, paddling 14 miles and walking 14 miles to finish long after dark.
