Won't you please attend and ted your much needed support. The question on everyone's mind has been answered. Did David Mabaffy and Tim Lawton succeed in their quest to wave tire flags of two area businesses on the top of Mount Maiey? Indeed they did* and they have the pictures to prove it. : -% It took a false start, a little perseverance, and a lot of courage, to make the climb down while still in tuxedoes, but the ''mountain men\ did it. The weekend of September 28, the original date for the climb, the two Bullshooter bartenders traveled to Lake Placid. Knowing that hurricane Gloria was on her way, they \did the sensible thing, and beaded for the nearest tavern to obtain weather information\. Thursday night was spent in their car. Friday morning, they-awoke to a downpour. They decided to wait until Saturday, and spent that nisi* at the Hood SU Moritz. ATter returning to the tavern to check on the weather, they postponed the climb. Wind gusts of 70-plus m.p.h. were expected, and trails were washed out from the rain. \We may be crazy, but we're not stupid,\ Dave said of the post- ponement. Undaunted, the pair returned to try again, the weekend of October 4. This time, they stayed at a friend's cabin in the Town of Careys, just outside of Lake Placid. The climb was made Saturday, and took just over four hours to cover the seven-mile traiL Besides waiting out a thunderstorm, they climbed the last two miles in a torrential downpour, \like a salmon going upstream.\ \The toughest part was changing into tuxedoes on the top of the mountain,\ Dave said. The temperature on top of the raountain, which at 5,344 feet is the highest in the state, was about 30 degrees. The last 150 yards were i^mbed in their tuxedoes. At last, the flags of Buflshooters and Lady Dl's flew at the top. Then came the trip down, which took longer, because, \people kept stopping us to take pictures, ask questions.\ The two hikers were even applauded. Tim and Dave would like to thank the following people for making their expedition successful: Jim and Cathy Cervo and Bullshooter's, the Sunshine Hallmark Shop, Diana Karod and Lady Di's (for the tuxedoes), Dick Champney for the champagne, glasse~ and truffles, Eagle Beverages for the case of beer, Jean Freeman and John Radigan (for use of the cabin) and Tiffany's Bar in Lake Placid (for weather information). The-way such an adventure came to be is reahy very simple. Dave and Urn, who try to climb a mountain every fall, were discussing the Idea at a parry-held at the Cervo's. By the end of the party, \champagne and tuxedoes had been donated!, and we were committed.\ In answer to what's next for the 'dynamic duo*, Dave replied that \they'll %ave to wail until the next party at Cervo's.\ Sponsors Open House An Open House will be held at Oswego County BOCES in Meade© on October 24, from 3 to 5 pan.
