Adelanto Chamber Wins Ambassador Challenge For 3rd Time

By Nolan Patrick Smith

(Adelanto)– This week, two High Desert Chambers of Commerce came together to settle the score on who will take the trophy for the Ambassador Challenge.

After the Adelanto Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon meeting at Mavericks Stadium’s Conference Room, Ambassadors from both the Adelanto and Hesperia Chambers of Commerce came together for a 2 out of 3 tie breaker event to determine who takes the top spot in the multi chamber Ambassador Challenge. The event originally took place at the High Desert Maverick’s home opening game in April, with various chambers including Apple Valley, Hesperia, and the High Desert Hispanic Chamber all coming together for some friendly competition. But there was no clear winner that night, as the Adelanto and Hesperia Chambers were all tied up in points.

That brought both chambers together once again, as they would go head to head in various creative games. Games included “Paper Dragon”, which consisted of each contestant holding the ends of a roll of paper streamers in each hand, and when the time started to windmill their arms as fast as they could to unravel the entire streamer rolls. Both chambers had a strong showing of dedicated ambassadors giving their all, but in the end it was the Adelanto Chamber that arose victorious for the third consecutive time.

The Adelanto Chamber Ambassadors, led by the Chamber’s 1st Vice President Amy Byrnes, coordinated the event. “We enjoy participating in the Ambassador Challenges.  It gives us a great opportunity to get to know people from the other chambers.  We appreciate the Hesperia Ambassadors coming out to the Adelanto Chamber of Commence luncheon to compete in the tiebreaker.  I feel that everyone who participated had a lot of fun and we (Adelanto) are excited to take the trophy for a 3rd consecutive win,” Byrnes commented to High Desert Daily after the event.

The next all chamber Ambassador Challenge is being planned to take place in the fall. For more information on the Adelanto Chamber, you can visit them on the web at For more information on the Hesperia Chamber, feel free to visit their website at
