In spite of some rains showers on both Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, both the Corkscrew Rockfish 4Miler held at Cardinal Point Vineyard & Winery and the DB Adventures Steeplechase Run For The Hops went off without a hitch. Blue Ridge Life Magazine is a sponsor of both of the events held often throughout the year.

Not that seeing a deer anywhere in these parts is unusual, but seeing one sprint across the race course at DB Steeplechase while it's going on was pretty unusual!
