Congratulations to Stuart Bowman on winning the Ferris Cup today.

A big thank you to Sally and Mike Olizar for presenting the prizes for the Ferris Cup on Saturday. Mike Olizar, who won this race in 1992, mentioned that Maurice Ferris, who joined the club in 1926, and was a winner of the Christmas Day handicap in 1938, passed away in the 1960s. This year marks the 91st anniversary of Ferris joining Serpentine SC.

We were also delighted to see Leanne’s new baby Persie make a very welcome appearance at the club. 

Finally… courtesy of Wikipedia, we can say that “the original Ferris Wheel was designed and constructed by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. as a landmark for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The generic term Ferris wheel is now used for all such structures, which have become the most common type of amusement ride at state fairs in the United States.”
