  1. Once again, for last year, you're right, the food was a disaster. However, with all due respect, It's not as easy as you make it out to be. We all have tasks to perform on the day and to drop everything to run and put up a "stand" would jeopardise the actual race. Like I said, we tried, we got someone there with a stand in less than 2 hours and still, it was terrible. Each 24 hour we run comes with it's own challenges. I always offer anybody who is interested to volunteer with the Paige Project and you will see what goes on behind the scenes. Thanks for the feedback.
  2. What I am saying is that last year, 2 hours before the event, the vendor said he would not make it. How are we supposed to handle that? We did get someone there but he was inadequately prepared, hence the disaster. And we did take accountability for that and apologised.
  3. With all due respect, the problems with food were not similar to last year. Yes last year was a disaster when the food vendor dropped us 2 hours before the event. I don't understand why some people don't get this! This year hot food and refreshments was available right into the night. Prego rolls, wraps, bacon and egg rolls etc...were selling so fast that the vendor had to make several runs to fetch supplies. All the profit from this went to The Paige Project which was a ton of money.
  4. We apologise for not announcing the the winners of this category at first. The organisers were awake for over 24 hours and these things unfortunately can happen.
  5. For the record, Eric is offered every year to run the restaurant during the 24 hour and ever year he turns it down because he can't staff it for the entire duration. Also, if you followed the updates and Facebook page, you will know that pizza was never on offer. Once again, we welcome volunteers every year to come on board and see what it takes to run this event.
