The best part of the race was that Sam Adams served beer after it!
Brenden wanted to go deer hunting this fall and took gun training. This led to getting a deer rifle which led to him getting his first deer - an eight point buck. Thanks go to his Uncle Mike Olson, Uncle Dave Powers and his cousin, David Olson.
