OTTAWA — Team Orange found the Ottawa Women’s Club Bench and opened their packet. Their next clue was to decorate a pizza using play dough and markers.

The Ottawa Girl Scouts leftWashingtonSquareParkfor downtown pizza restaurants.

Central Illinois Girl Scouts council held its Amazing Race on Monday. Scouts in grades 6 through 12 from eight troops throughout the council territory participated. Teams worked on clues at 18 locations in downtownOttawato learn teamwork.

Adult leader Shantel Hanlon andOttawascouts Nikki Fahrion, Lexi Fahrion, Emily Walker and Karli Hanlon found a table of pizza-making supplies outside R. Grotto Ristorante. The next clue led them to Ottawa Travel and Cruise, and on they went, solving clues by completing tasks at 18 locations.

At Jeremiah Joe coffee house they navigated a coffee bean across the floor by blowing through a straw. In the Book Mouse they searched for keywords such as “girl,” “survive” and “camp” in the titles of books in sections like middle school.

“There’s no middle school section that I know of,” Nikki Fahrion said. “There’s children.”

“I got middle school,” Shantel Hanlon said.

Emily Walker scanned a section. Karli Hanlon came to help.

“I got this side. You want to get that side?”Walkersaid.

The team found the clues and Shantel Hanlon assembled them: “Let’s go girls.”

They gathered around Emily’s mother, Rosie Walker, who volunteered to check clues and stamp team notebooks with two paw prints, the sign of the Book Mouse.

“OK, let’s see girls,”Walkersaid. “Do you have your three books? All right. Good job.”
