Delta Millers at Skate-the-Lake

The Delta Mill Society fielded a team in the relay race for the 2009 Skate-the-Lake event in Portland on January 31, 2009.

WE WON for Best Dressed relay team at Skate the Lake (we placed 14th out of 17 in the race - but in fairness, it is hard to race wearing period costumes).

Thanks go to our team: Jeff, Cathy, Natalie, JoAnne and Moel for their wonderful costumes and great performance (and for braving the -15 temperature on that day - brrrr).

Moel waves to his adoring fans

The flour is safely (and speedily) delivered

The team congratulates itself on a job well done

Rick Mercer did the relay race as a part of a segment for his CBC television show

Rick pulled a few shenanigans, such as hitching a ride.

Rick exibits perfect form for the push off of his team mate\n(you can see the Delta Millers in the background)

And finally - we have Moel, valiantly carrying his heavy load of flour, heading for the finish line
