Runner Up in Best of Nevada County

The Union today published their yearly announcement of “Nevada County’s Best of 2011”. Coming in as ‘Runner Up’ in the category of “Best Charitable Event of the Year” was, wait… Nevada County Food and Toy Run!

Yes, I thought the fix might have been in, but was assured by Union Publisher, Jeff Ackerman, that all was legit! We don’t know who to thank, except you, who have supported us and have ridden in the Run. Today, runner up… tomorrow, the World!
Thanks again to everyone who voted for us ~

Plan ahead – Toy Run route map

Every year there are a few people who complain about blocked intersections and having to wait for the bikes to pass before they can get where they’re going. Now is the time to plan an alternative route around the procession or avoid the area altogether between noon and 1pm.

Remember, it’s a charity event that benefits so many people in our area and surely we can all afford a one hour inconvenience. Better yet, buy a toy, take it to the fairgrounds and join in the fun! (click on map for larger view)
