Taking the challenge

Driving rain did not deter Kim Kline (right) and Jeff Kline (left) of the “ReKliners” team from tackling the annual Canal Winchester Lions Club Challenge on Aug. 11. Pictured here is Kim Kline attempting to shoot a beach ball into a trash can in the Brew Dog parking lot in spite of the heavy rain. Nine two-person teams braved the rain to bicycle, run, or walk around Canal Winchester to various sites to solve puzzles and complete challenges in the race. The event raised funds to support the community based service projects of the Canal Winchester Lions Club. For information on the Lions Club, email info@canalwinchesterlions.org.
