Another Winter Series is in the books. After a modified season last year it was great to get back to close to normal. I want to extend my thanks to all those who made this season possible, we can’t do any of this without a strong team of volunteers.
We had several new first time season long volunteers who successfully took on big roles for the first time.
Registration Coordinators: Sandra Marquez-Ferber & Karen Robinson
Food Coordinators: Shankar Thangapandi, Lisa Kall & Neil Brown
Results Coordinator: Lauren Trinsey
We also had several returning season long volunteers who continued to handle extremely important roles:
Volunteer Coordinators: Jackie & Jay Devine
Fire Manager (A.K.A Resident Pyromaniac): Dave Lubbe
Charitable Donation Coordinator: Emily Grace
Oatmeal Man & BCRR President: Dr. Johnny King-Marino
Heater Coordinator & BCRR VP: Rich Kanak
And of course the man who holds the whole Winter Series together, Equipment Manager: Bill Schaffling
Additionally, none of this is possible without the guidance of our weekly race directors!
First time race director:
Polar Bear: Regina Hastings
Returning Race Directors:
Covered Bridge: Lisa Antenucci, Wendy Pippin Fesmire & Renee Harnishfeger
Jingle Bell: Phil Miele
Cham Pain: Jim Maze
Tyler Challenge: Pat McCloskey
Wild Card: Joe Boyce
Honest Abe: Kathy Hahn & Cathy Goodman
Terrible Tyler: Pat & Kristi Goodwin
Pick Your Way: Anthony Accardo
Eenie-Meanie-Minie-Moe: Neil Brown
Staggered Start: Sam Cler
I would also like to thank the Management and staff of Tyler State Park for allowing to hold the series each year as well as WHP Events, along with Jimmy Balmer & Anthony Accardo for bringing us into modern times with chip timing.
Thank you all for making this season a success. Watch for upcoming announcements about a Winter Series Celebration in May.
