November 22 found hearty Metroites burning burgers at the annual Electric Car Race, sponsored by Sandia Labs, PNM and the Albuquerque School District. The challenge was to turn out hamburgers and hot dogs on half a grill, until Fred Pugh returned with a repaired part for the other half of the grill. Despite the challenges and long lines of waiting customers, it was a great "bonding" experience for members who participated. This is an annual event - check us out next year.
An added feature was a banner commemorating Ron Rioux, a strong supporter of both the car race event and Metro Rotary.
