He was one of the original supporters of the event and feels strongly about its potential impact on the entire region. The Voice also spoke with three of the key personalities who helped plan, organize and coordinate the event.  It was the first of its kind ever attempted in the Rutland Region.  Organizers knew that they would have a large “nut” to crack and weather would be a huge factor.
