The Roast

Eugene Rush of Ypsilanti, Michigan was the honoree (Human Sacrifice). He and his eldest son Joshua successfully digested the eyes of the pig, an annual tradition for the honoree.  Joshua, in support of his father, volunteered to partake, making it the first father-son team in Pig Roast history.

A surprised Rochelle Balkam of Ann Arbor, Michigan was awarded the Woody, an annual award given to a person who supports paddleball and demonstrates a love for the game.
