Derrick Hopkins took the flag for two consecutive wins, joining only a handful of Greasy Pole walkers to do same. As he did in both courtesy rounds and his win on Friday night, he seamlessly walked the walk. Odds are he may take the flag tomorrow night, too.
Thunder clouds passed overhead threatening the sporting events. Most of the afternoon was cloudy with a few raindrops but just after Derrick’s amazing win, the sun burst through the clouds. Viva San Pietro!
