The annual event, sponsored this year by Jagermeister, included over 30 teams from local establishments vying for prizes and, of course, bragging rights to be the champions in the resort area.

This year's competition benefited Destination Station, a facility to be operated by the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce adjacent to the Park and Ride on Shuttle Road that will offer a fun and curiosity-driven exploratory attraction, a visitor center that offers area information and a transit hub that encourages utilizing the transit service.
