By Don Richeson / Staff
SAPPHIRE -- Glenville resident Jose Luis Feria Aparicio captured first place for the second straight year in the Sapphire Valley Resort outhouse race Saturday, guiding a St. Jude Catholic Church Knights of Columbus entry to victory. The cross-topped entry was called Confession Concession and is modeled on a Catholic Church confessional booth.
In the race’s final heat, Aparicio edged out a chicken coop-theme entry called Poop Coop piloted by Lance Black, who came from Birmingham, Alabama to compete in the race. Black captured runner-up honors.
Hundreds came out to watch the 14 ski-equipped outhouse entries race down the ski slope at the resort in the 13th annual presentation of the race.
