Pub Crawl winner a long way from home

Refresherator-winnerDoug Thompson is a long way from his home in Texas, but was the lucky winner of the Pub Crawl promotion — the refresherator. Thompson is currently working at Camp Ripley with BAE Systems, training soldiers on the operation of the Bradley Fighter. Thompson said the refresherator will hold up to 48 beverage cans. Pictured at Thompson’s feet is the basket of raffle drawing tickets. Kris VonBerge, one of the organizers of the event, said 400 of the 575 T-shirts were sold during what she termed a successful event.
