After dinner, many door prizes provided by the 3rd Base were awarded. The standing room only crowd enjoyed the presentation of awards by flagman Tom Lindahl, filling in for President Kris Baker who was unable to attend.

Rookie of the Year honors went to Rob Martinson. (Dennis Peterson | Special to the Pioneer)

The club is known for the many charities it supports. More than $40,000 has been donated in the last year.

Drivers look forward to coming together for hopefully a full season of ice racing next year. The 2019 racing season was cut short by poor ice conditions.

Awards were presented to the top five in the A and B classes, and Rob Martinson was awarded the Rookie of the Year honor.

Ryan Julin was the A class season points champion. He was followed by John Farrington, Bonnie Farrington, Ryan/Collette Huston and Kalin Honer to round out the top five.

Sam Delaney finished as the B class season points champion. Josh Bitker, Abe Forseman, Dennis Clark and Nate Zanter rounded out the top five.

A total of 43 drivers raced this year for the Garfield Lake Ice Racers.
