There were triumphant journeys, epic faceplants and lots of sinking at the annual Pond Skim at Pats Peak in Henniker yesterday. About 50 people in costumes including Darth Vader to a banana tried their luck at making it across the pond. Awards were given for best costume, best splash and best skim.
