Kudos to Grogan and Johnson

Dear Editor:The 24 Hours of Sunlight was a special and inspiring event. Your coverage on Monday gave much credit where it was due. However, as you probably took most of your data from the Granny Gear website, one of the sponsors of the event, some of their data is incorrect and incomplete. For some reason, it was correct at the site of the event, but not online. They have been informed of this inconsistency. Placing third behind the amazing Greg Hill and Jimmy Faust were the Highlanders – so named as they are members of the Aspen Highlands Ski Patrol – Brian Johnson and Tim Grogan, entered in the duo/pro category. In addition, they were the only entrants who did 33 laps, not the 31 reported elsewhere, the final lap being done together. Their accomplishment was acknowledged at the awards ceremony. Neither of them has participated in an event of this sort before, and I want them to receive all the credit that they deserve. They represented Aspen proudly.Carol P. KleinCarbondale
