Brian was over the moon to finally -- after never getting close to the podium in all these years -- to WIN! Clamagement Services dashed five feet to scoop the gold medal.
A close second for the Silver was Lottie Faulkner's entry, the very royal Princess Clam, at 4'6". Up on the podium with Lottie, by the lake, are the 4th place winners, Alli and Zach Robb, whose Clamentine ran a very close 4'3".
Because the Clams ran on a Thursday, the actual medals won't be here until next week. Jim, our hero at Treasures and Trophies, simply can't get it done over the long weekend. So the Clam Race will extend a little longer, and the winners can breathlessly watch the Mail for the arrival of their medals.
Some of our other contestants included Clamtastic, Abraclam Lincoln, Put a Shell on It, Adam Clambert, Clamrad Quack, Escargot Girl, A Clam for All Seasons.... even Napster the Cat had an entry this year, Clamcasso, in honour of his new artistic career.
It was a Grand Occasion, tons of fun. Thanks to all the competitors for their spirit and inventive Clam Names, the Music Men for being so thoroughly into Clam Racing, and all the folks who make this race run. Not to mention, Here's to the Clams! Couldn't do it without you!!
