The Splash-N-Dash event at Jack Lake Saturday drew and excellent crowd and was blessed with one of the summer’s nicest days.
“It was a fantastic day for a race,” one of the supporters of the program, Michelle Koss explained.
As the racers and their families and friends gathered for the mandatory pre-competition meeting, time was taken to honor of Jim Spychalla, an avid silent sport advocate in the Langlade County community. He was a man who usually never missed a day hiking, skiing or swimming at Jack Lake, a facility he truly enjoyed. He watched the event with his son James.
