A Thornhill Pub server drops off her tray for judges’ inspection during the Slingers Race at the Terrace Legion Branch 13 Sunday afternoon. The Riverboat Days competition tests the dexterity of area servers in fun competition, requiring contestants to race each other with a tray full of drinks and a complex list of procedures from table to table. In the Managers’ Race, Teresa from Thornhill Pub took top spot. In the Servers competition Becky from George’s Pub beat the best, and in the Team category George’s again proved singular with some serious serving savvy. (Quinn Bender photo)
