It was a really fun night. Everyone was dressed in team colors with lots of noise makers. Peter Miller had a megaphone which played a winning song every time the Black Diamonds won a category. I was neutral in purple which are the royal colors, so I wore my Tiara and purple boa and became the Queen for the night.

Our judges Mike Goodman, MNEC (who came with a black hat so someone had to give him red beads so he didn’t show favoritism) and GLPA’s own Fran MacDonald, MNEC did a great job with lots of humor and banter. I do not think Mike will be asked back to Lynn though, as he made a lot of disparaging comments about Coke which we all know is the “nectar of life” and my favorite drink!! Fran was asked to name the wildflowers as that is his thing – it took him a minute but with a little help he was finally able to do so. It’s amazing how the clean air in VT will just suck the knowledge out of your brain.

It was a close competition right up till the last few categories when the Black Diamonds Team hit the number 13 wins and then it was over. The final score Red Devils=11 & Black Diamonds=14. The trophy was marked with the correct plate and put up for all to admire the rest of the year. Thanks to all the members who participated and all who came to view the night. We had members there we haven’t seen all year! The hall was overfull with 3 rows of extra chairs put up. A special thanks to our 2 team leaders Pam Lintner-Red Devils and Bob Pizzano-Black Diamonds for all the work they did to make this happen. One team leader was even bribing the judges with Candy to get on their good side. I don’t want to point any fingers but Bob had a bag full of goodies with him.

The Cook-Off raffle was also a great success with everyone vying for their favorite dessert. Everyone was generous and bought lots of tickets. A total of $463 was put into the club coffers. The winning cook was Kilmer Sweazy with her German Chocolate Cake. She may have swayed things her way a bit as she was passing out samples while folks were still buying tickets. Apparently it was yummy as she had a lot of tickets in her bag. Thanks to Marilyn Cloran who took over coordinating the cook off. I won a chocolate and peanut butter item so I was happy. This year there were 3 peanut butter items so had to split my tickets for all things peanut butter flavored for as you know that is my favorite.

More thanks to Chris Germain who decorated the hall and popped the popcorn everyone enjoyed all night; thanks to our 2 ticket sellers-Ken Jordan in his devil ears and Peter Curcis in his red boa which he wore with pride! Thanks also to the set up crew-Rick & Marilyn Cloran, Bob Pizzano, Pam Lintner, Peter Curcis, Ken Jordan and Jake & myself, and thanks to the membership who helped to tear it down and set the club back up to normal.

A special thanks to Jake Mosser for putting the program images together and making the title images for the show.
