Greensburg — Dear Editor:

The inaugural Fisher 5 Mile Adult Big Wheel Race has come and gone, and Main Street Greensburg would like to thank everyone that made the exciting event possible.

First, the entities that helped furnish the big wheels: Drift King Big Wheels and Acro Engineering.

Next, the numerous teams that braved the weather and the unknown to take part in the race for glory: Teams McKenzie, 5/3 Bank, YMCA, Anytime Fitness, North Decatur, Greensburg High School, Rust, Enhanced Telecommunications, and The Dawg Haus.

And finally, the many volunteers who helped promote the event: WTRE, the Greensburg Daily News, the Chamber of Commerce and Decatur County Tourism; prepare for the event: Downtown Merchants, Greensburg Fire

and Police Department, Greensburg Street Department, the Decatur County

Commissioners, and downtown residents; and those who helped the event to

run smoothly: Miers Farms, Dr. Jon Dooley, Miss Decatur County Natalie

Smiley, Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, Sally Robbins, The Decatur County

Clerk's Office, GamePlan Graphics, and Designed Sound and Video.

It takes the efforts of many to make an event successful, and there are always more to thank, but our hopes are that those who lent a hand will be happy with the notion that they helped to start something unique for the community, something fun for the whole family, and something that will be an attraction for years to come.

We thank you all, and look forward to next year. (Teams, start working on your quads.) Ê Ê Ê Ê Ê Ê
