Photos of our Sunday Greasy Pole Walkers walking The Walk. Congratulations again to second time winner Jake Wagner, who was walking in memory of his Dad, John Wagner. Sunday was one of the most exciting Greasy Pole events ever, with outstanding walks and legendary losses.

JAKE WOOD: FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY GREASY POLE CHAMPION

After Randy Sweet’s stunning two Greasy Pole victories in two straight competitions, lots of folks were wondering if anyone has ever won the Greasy Pole contest three nights in a row. The answer is yes, Jake Wood captured the flag all three nights back in 1999! Jake still walks today and he is in third place for all time Greasy Pole captures, with seven wins. He is superseded only by Salvi Benson (11) and Peter “Black” Frontiero (9). Thank you to Jake, Joey D, and Steven for the record.
