Lucinda The Love Goddess

Friday, April 12, 2013

It has been a dark day for Big Al's today. Lucinda the Love Goddess Big Al's downhill dummy is no more. Lucinda starred in the 1993 Downhill Dummy race with 1st place and $500 prize money. Boy did the team celebrate. Tequilla slammers were all the rage back then. It was a big deal .The town and the mountain had a closer relationship and almost every business entered a dummy. Unfortunately Lucinda could not repeat her podium. The next year she crashed spectacularly at the finish. The fireworks she was carrying were still fireing off terrifying women and children (men too) Some wags had suggested that Mt Hutt management had wanted to put a rocket up Perry Marcot's bottom - Lucinda did the job !!  Fireworks were then prohibited and Lucinda lost her spark for victory. She was retired to Big Al's garage where she was treated cruelly over the years. Backed into by vehicles and covered with junk. She is finally on her way to Valhalla.
