Urban Dare Minneapolis Winners

Thank you to everyone who competed in Urban Dare Minneapolis.

Congratulations to David Stillman & Erik Reisetter for winning in a time of 1:12:56.

Second place honors went to Greta & Nathan Hanson, and Amado Sleiman & Todd Petit came in third.

The first family was the Urban Marines - MIke LOCASCIO, Luke LoCASCIO & Clay Penca.

Here was the clue that caused a good deal of separation in the race:

The USS Minneapolis served in the Pacific theater of operations during World War II, and fought in many of the major sea battles. Get your picture with a bell for the USS Minneapolis.

As it turns out, there happens to be 2 USS Minneapolis bells in the metropolitan area. The one from the ship that served in WWII is located downtown next to the convention center. The other bell is located on the northeastern shore of Lake Calhoun, a good distance away from all the other checkpoints. The ship it comes from, also the USS MInneapolis, was commissioned in 1896 and decomissioned in 1921.
