THIS YEAR'S RACE IN THE CANALS DISTRICT
YOUNG LAD WINS TWO
CHEATER CUT THROUGH THE PARK, WITNESSES CLAIM
New Babbage, NB — The annual Pancake Toss Race was held again yesterday afternoon in the Canals District, at Doyle's Place, directly in front of Ruby's Public House. This year's race was a circuit of the circumference of Steampunk Park.
The race, as is usual, was held in three sub-races, those being: Children's Race; Adult's Race; and All-In-One.
The Children's Race, and the All-In-One, were won by young master Jimmy Bracket, who has won several times in the past. "Oy's oike ta thank everyone faw their support awl year." he told a reporter of the Free Press yesterday afternoon, directly after his win.
The Adult's Race was the subject of some controversy, as charges of cheating were bandied by some in the crowd. The winner of the race was ostensibly one Mr R Boloney of Wheatstone, though some have challenged his win, claiming he cut through the park during the run. "It is quite true, I saw him duck into the park after having some trouble getting a good speed up after the shout of go was called." said a Mr R Upton of Babbage Square, to a representative of the Free Press.
"Nonsense." said Mr R Boloney, himself. "They're all just jealous. Is it a cash prize?"
