Halloween in Condorstown:
The Bakersfield Condors costume contest sponsored by 106.1 KRAB Radio that took place at this past Saturday’s game against the Alaska Aces was a great success. Countless fans dressed up in various costumes to win big prizes. The finalists included an Oompa Loompa, Buzz Lightyear, one of the Hanson Brothers of “Slapshot” fame, and Pop-eye and Olive Oil. First place was awarded to John Mathews who dressed up as an Avatar character. He took home $106 and ECHL All-Star Classic tickets. Runner up was awarded to the Surico family kids who dressed up as Dorothy and the Lion from the Wizard of Oz. They took home a pair of U2 tickets and a Twilight poster singed by the cast. Thank you to everyone who dressed up and made the Condors costume contest a lot of fun!
