Story by Kevin Snelgrove
July 25, 2009

Spectacular weather greeted the Sweet Dreams 5K race and horseshoe pitching events. Perhaps Eric Prichett our local NBC29 weatherman had a bit of influence over Mother Nature and blessed this day with great weather. A bit hot and humid perhaps but the expected thunderstorms held off until after the whole Sweet Dreams event ended at 5:00 pm.

Eric finished second this year in the 5K event running 19:55, Daniel Alonzo finished 1st with an 18.02. It was a record breaking year for running times. It was a record breaking event all the way around - attendance this year surprised even the organizer of the race Sony Cubbage, with 125 participants. This race is growing every year!

The same thing happened with the horseshoe event - with an unexpected turnout of more than 50 people, some pitchers were turned away. Planning for a maximum of 28 pitchers, we weren’t prepared for that turnout! My apologies if you were part of the people turned away. Next year we will be better prepared. Discussions are already underway to improve the registration process, possibly hold a Friday night horseshoe event with the winners coming back on Saturday for the Championship rounds or changing the format altogether.

Reading the Staunton Daily News Leader on Sunday, Kathy McQuain, Augusta County’s event coordinator, said the increased participation was felt throughout the entire Sweet Dreams event. According to her records, the event visitors/participants went over 10,000 ! The MAX since the event started six years ago. The Stuarts Draft Park was full of sponsors, crafters, food booths, rides and games for the children.

Sincere thanks to the many sponsors that make the event free for all. It was a lot of fun, come back and see us next year!
