Story by Kevin Snelgrove
July 22, 2006

As sponsor of the 5k race and horseshoe venues at Sweet Dreams it was a great feeling to see the smiles and hear the comments from the runners and pitchers. Both events grew in the numbers of contestants. I look forward to next year becoming even bigger.

Despite the weathermanís predictions we had a beautiful day for both events. The start of the race had great temperatures, not to hot and not to cold. Fifty-nine runners worked up a sweat completing the 5k course, returning to the finish line a gentle breeze helped cool them off. Neil Brydge won the race for the second year in a row.

Twenty-three pitchers took part in the horseshoe event.. Many of the games were decided by a few points. Michael Gordon (Buena Vista) last years champion found the competition a bit stiffer this year. Michael managed to make it into the championship round against John Hamm (Stuarts Draft), Jack Abrams (Stephen City) and Jackie Whetzel (Harrisonburg). Jackie holds this years title with Michael as runner up, Jack in third and John finishing forth.

Photos have been posted for both events. I am certain I got a shot of everyone. The 5k has nearly 400 photos and the horseshoes about 100 shots, some good and some not so good. The photo have been reduce in size, if you would like a copy of the original, click here to get my email address. It is at the bottom of the menu bar on the VaHPA web site.

My thanks to all of you who participated and those that helped run the events. Come back next year and bring a friend!
