After receiving their instructions during a competitors briefing at the LBYC, teams boarded pontoon boats with designated LBSS drivers. Five local properties were designated as sites for the skill challenges. LBSS students provided oversight to ensure "Fair Sailing". While driving back to the LBYC, competitors did their best to answer the Lake Beulah trivia questions. Correct answers generated time credits, reducing each team’s skill challenge aggregate time.
