Quarry Hill stages fun ski festival
HANCOCK — It was a great time at the fourth annual Iguana Cup Ski Race Sunday, March 23, at the Middlebury College Snow Bowl. Many familiar faces turned up to enjoy a day of outdoor fun and festivities. The sun was shining and it really was a very successful fundraiser for Quarry Hill School. We could not have done it without the wonderful parents who volunteered and raced in the event with friends and families.
Tristan Durante, a 13-year-old alumnus of QHS (one of 9 participating snowboarders), won the amazing signed Shaun White snowboard raffle prize. He was over the moon with excitement. There were 117 official race entrants and with a three-way tie for the winning team. Cousin Power, The Greasers and The Epic Chameleons share the honors this year.
The overall fastest skier on the slalom course was Greta Krahn. Jud Bartlett took the top spot for the fastest man. The winning snowboarder and telemark skiers were Andy Bojanowski and Eric Warren, respectively. The youngest racer of the day was Andy’s daughter Nova — just 3 years old. The final prize for the best costume was awarded to Chris Eaton who donned a full gorilla suit.
Thank you to the many sponsors who helped make this event possible: Laberge Insurance, JuneBug Kids Clothing, IPJ Real Estate, Omya, #1 Auto, National Bank of Middlebury, Cabot; RPM Auto, SquareSpot Design, the Snow Bowl, the Little Pressroom, Reprographics, ACTR, Rainbow Pediatrics and The Bridge School.
