Last year’s winning team was “Shop Gifted,” sponsored by the store Gifted on Main Street in Jackson. Teams chose the Gold Country Pet Resort and Amador Central Railroad for best experience on 49er Treasure Trail. The Pet Resort groomed players and put them through agility tests while the railroad provided hand cars for teams to ride.
