We take our military personnel to Victory Lane Karting Center in Charlotte, NC and turn them into racers. They get a practice session, qualifying session, and then an individual race . Then we place the winner with the slowest service member and the 2nd fastest with the 2nd slowest and so on. We now have a super fun competition for everyone and a super competitive team race.
We then have a qualifying session for VIP’s and we put the fastest VIP with the slowest military service member and have a VIP – Military team race for bragging rights for the next few days.
Lunch will be provided at Pit Road Bar ‘N Grill located inside VLK.
We will then head to Xcalibur Pit School and turn our participants into legit Nascar pit crew members. VIP’s get a shot at the title as well.
Everyone then heads to our VRBO lake houses which have been graciously donated by Hill Co Reality and Southern Charm Vacations. One house is for our military personnel and one the other is for our Centurion VIP’s and more.
Days Two and Three
The next two days are on the water for two wake surf sessions each day. We have a professional driver and a Pass the Handle coach on each Centurion with 4 military participants.
Each day will begin with a surf session from 9am-1pm. A food truck will stop by the house and feed our crew for lunch from 1pm to 2pm. Afterwards, we get back out on the water for more surfing and watersports fun from 2pm-6pm. Dinner will be provided at the house each night for all of our participants.
