The Friends of Lyman Run would like to extend their thanks and appreciation to the park management, staff, rangers, and maintenance crews at Lyman Run for the terrific job they did setting up for the derby and all the extra work they did due to the high water conditions. Once again they proved they are one of the best park's staffs in the Commonwealth! 
Also a big thanks to all the Friends of Lyman Run volunteers who helped with the planning and running of the derby and without whom, this event could not have happened.
