The yearly "Cemetery Crawl" event went off without much of a hitch, except perhaps some car troubles for one team. The two-day road rally based on "The Amazing Race" sent contestant teams through western Arizona to every small cemetery and interesting weird road stop possible. They did fantastic and I don't believe there was one speeding ticket (a first, I think!) The winners came in pretty far ahead of the pack, the Catacomb Crawlers were the winners and they seemed to have a fantastic time following crazy rhyming clues, doing weird deeds, and collecting fake money along the way. At the end, they came to Double Buttes Cemetery in Tempe where they had to find a veteran's grave and leave a flag. Then, they were off to the labyrinth which is the crematory. They had to follow the weaving path to the center where they were given their prizes.
