The 5th and 6th grade students welcomed racers at Madawaska's Four Corners Park this morning (Oct. 6th) at 9AM. Motor Scooter International Land Speed Federation's (MSILSF) Real Cannonball race began in Imperial Beach, California, on Sunday, October 2, at 9AM and ended in Madawaska, Maine. The 1st rider arrived on Wednesday, October 5.  Students learned about  the race through a WOWL video (found here) of Brian Bouley, Madawaska Chamber Director, in California FaceTiming with Madawaska Town Manager, Ryan Pelletier, at the start of the race.  Students made posters to welcome the race finishers and listened to the award presentations made by Mr. Joe LaChance.  See all photos here.  Thank you, Louise Albert, for taking photos of the event!
