Golden Snowball Trophy Presentation
I had the privilege of talking with Sheri Owens who is the director of the media for the city of Syracuse recently. We discussed the possibly of presenting the Golden Snowball trophy to the mayor for last seasons victory. I've talked to Sheri a few times and I have to admit she is one of the most pleasant people to talk to. I figured it was late on a Friday afternoon and I would probably be blown off but that wasn't the case at all.
I asked Sheri if there was any chance of presenting the trophy to the Mayor at the Christmas Tree Lighting but unfortunately everything is pretty much booked for that event which I can understand. Maybe next year we can try and get squeezed in for that event. I then asked if perhaps we could have a trophy presentation on the first day of Winter which seems only fitting. Snowfall trophy and the 1st day of Winter seems like a good match. Sheri said she will get back to me on it sometime next week.
The thing is that it is hard to come up with a good time to present the trophy. During a close snow race the Golden Snowball Contest might not end until the beginning of May. When we are sure that no more snow is going to fall. Remember it has snowed on Mothers Day before. It comes down to who cares about presenting the trophy to the winning city in May when most of us are planning our gardens, bike riding and so on. So that all said the only thing I can think of would be to present it sometime during the snowy season. Any thoughts or suggestions???
