|The Brooklyn St. George Hotel, once New York's largest hotel, but now defunct...destroyed in a fire some years back, was the place for the shindig the evening of the race. Awards, and accolades were passed out...each in the winning team receiving a gold belt buckle, the second, and third place teams a silver belt buckle. I remember the buckle...but have misplaced it.
The ceremony for me has been mostly forgotten, not being much for such things, and not a boozer at the time...my mind was still out in the bay...the most fun part for me.
I did however manage to save the patch issued by MSTS to us in the effort.
