Mark Burdine, a long time member of Red's, set a new challenge for himself early on this summer. His goal was to slide down the big water slide 3,000 times this summer. He made his calculations and proceeded to fulfill his daily quota, keeping Red's staff updated on his progress daily. Somewhere down the line. . . a second challenge was made. If Mark were to achieve his 3,000 slides, then Eugene, a Red's personal trainer, would follow his final slide with one of his own. Well, the fact that Eugene is 6'5", 235 pounds and a NON-Swimmer makes it a little bit more interesting.
Well today, Wednesday, August 25th, 2010 both guys completed their challenge (with 8 lifeguards on the pool-side). Congratulations to Mark & Eugene.
