Page 6 Wednesday, September 5, 2012 The Adams County Record Continued from frontpage weather was perfect, and perhaps a few records were set over the 3-day weekend. An estimated 900 attend- ed the barbeque lunch on Sunday. Approximately 100 volunteers staffed the BBQ meal, and for the first time in 47 years, there was no leftover meat to sell! Many happy eaters said it was the best beef they've ever had, while many oth- ers asked for the recipe for the coleslaw and the baked beans. The two new events, the carnival and mud volley- ball, were huge successes, especially for the nighttime crowds. While the little kids were thrilled with the roller coaster and other rides and games of the car- nival, the Meadows Valley teens put on what many folks hope will become an annual mud volleyball tournament. "I hope it becomes an annual event," said Bill Brown, Adams County Commissioner. "The kids were happy, and that's what it's all about." Brown also donated the dirt for the muddy vol- leyball court, and his yard now sports a new frog pond for the grandkids to enjoy. Congratulations to Meadows Valley high school student Justice Gregerson and Jessi Martin of the City of New Meadows for organizing this crowd-pleasing event. The winning team of the tournament was Brown's Mountain Market, with players Adrien Wilson, Cynda Lloyd, Samantha York, Cody Fraze, Jamie McCloud, Justin Swift, Shadyn Wallace, and Denise Gerou. Pairing Meadows Valley Days with the grand open- ing of the historic New Meadows depot also resulted in resounding suc- cess. The depot recorded over 700 visitors, though many more may not have signed the guest book. Large crowds streamed through the historic exhib- its in the sparkling halls of the depot throughout the long holiday weekend. 'N huge number of people were reacquainting them- selves with old acquain- tances this weekend, " said Rodney Pratt, President of the Adams County Historical Society. "The grandson and granddaugh- ter of Colonel Heigho, the founder of New Meadows, were here, along with their children and families. Also, many former employees of the PIN railway visited here;' he said. (Ed.
