PVTC Christmas Caper, Saturday, December 21, 2002


    PVTC had the only race (listed in the Post) in town so we got a decent turnout for the last race of our 30th year.

    Everyone took home a wooden Christmas tree ornament and many took home ceramic prizes with Christmas paintings on the side, and we trust that all had a merry Christmas. Prizes were given to the top 3 in each 10-year age group. The weather was sunny and about freezing, which left slippery frost on the long wooden bridge, and there was a light wind.

    We want to again thank the regular cast of volunteers who did an excellent job of officiating. They were: Kate DeAngelis, Carla Convery, Don Riggs, Bob Briggs, Sharon Good, Toni Letaw, Lee Glassco, and Jennifer Stephens. David Miller helped before racing.
