The Northeast Delta Dental Race to the Top of Vermont
6th series, race #1 of 5
Congratulations to Jake Brown and Kelsey Dickinson on their wins! Once again we luck’d out with the weather. Arriving at 7:15 it was sunny and 61 degrees. By race time the skies were still sunny and didn’t start turning overcast until after the race. It was 77 at 12:15 when we got to the BBQ and awards venue. Just before the awards ended it started to rain and raffle drawing moved inside.
I had asked RD Greg Maino if he’d hand out the awards for top 3 men n women in the 5th series? He did me one better n told me he’d will fit us into the awards ceremony! However, I did not expect he would hand the mike over to me to make the announcements! Yikes!!!
I was proud n thrilled to present awards to Sau-Mei n Kevin for winning the 5th series n Karen n Jeff for finishing 2nd! Unfortunately, Bob n Emer weren’t able to be here this time.
As I have been receiving several requests n questions about joining the series, I’m going to hold off on most of the usual update stat’s. Until after Greylock, I’ll just include points n standings for RTTTOVT, which is also standings in the 6th Northeast Uphill Mountain Series. If you are truly interested in joining, please let me know ASAP! Contact me @ email@example.com, thanks!!!
