Big Bear Lake, Ca, September 03, 2010, 4:00pm – The Big Bear Area Regional Wastewater Agency, also known as BBARWA, has recently become the first to win the Old Miners Outhouse Race. Team BBARWA consisted of 5 employees including: Fred Uhler, Jeremy Sweeney, Troy Bemisdafer, Clayton Cunningham, and Ron Roberts, who pushed and steered the outhouse to victory. It was fitting that BBARWA took home the top prize of $550.00. The teammates then banded together and decided to give their winnings back to the community. The Old Miners was helping a family raise funds for a tombstone after the passing of a loved one, and Team BBARWA chipped in $140.00 of their prize winnings to complete the amount needed. Team BBARWA then decided to give the rest of their winnings, plus some of their own funds, resulting in $500.00 to the Bear Valley Unified School District, to help children in need. Team BBARWA met with Superintendent Dr. Nancy Wright, and Director of Business Services for the school district, Walter Con to present them with the donation. Dr. Wright was very grateful, and thanked Team BBARWA for their generous support. Con stated that he would get in touch with the school principals to determine who the funds should go to. Dr. Wright and Con both thanked Team BBARWA, and appreciated their generosity.
