O’Planky Race
The
Murray’s
team,
consisting
of
Kevin, Ian, Sean and John
Murray, won first place in
the O’Planky Race held on
Saturday before the Great
Green Parade in Heppner.
They won a free drink
donated by Cornerstone
Gallery.
“The O’Planky”
Team Relay Race, brought
back from previous St.
Patrick’s
celebrations,
proved to be a huge
success,” said Sheryll
Bates of the Heppner
Chamber of Commerce.
“Voices could be heard
cheering for each team and
you heard a “left, right” in
the background from the
teams as they attempted to
move their team forward
with each step. There were
five teams represented and
it was very entertaining to
watch. I am sure we will
have tougher and even
more team competition for
next year. The community
looks forward to cheering
on their favorite team.”
The men’s teams
were: the Forest Service
Men’s Team, consisting
of Brian Spivey, Jon Ellis,
Jeromy Wilson and Ben
Firgens; the Murray’s team
consisting of Kevin, Ian,
Sean and John Murray;
and the last team with no
team name was made up of
Shane Lazinka, Wacy Coil,
Brandon Seitz and Bailey.
The
women’s
teams were:
Lucky
Charms, consisting of
Angela Jones, Kasandra
Kennedy, Pam Cutsforth,
Gina Wilson, and The
Shenanigals,
consisting
of Amanda Fabian, Liz
Johnston, Toni Young and
Katherine Botsford.
The winner of the
women’s team was the
“Lucky Charms” and they
also received a free drink
donated by Cornerstone
Gallery.
