The 44th Annual Dainty Contest has come and gone. The balloon arch has been removed, trash cleared, and the orange netting has been rolled up and stored away for next year. It was one of the coolest Dainty Contests in the history of the game (we even hit a record low last night of 56 degrees...in JULY!). Congratulations to Ned Daily, this year's winner, who hit the Dainty a remarkable 131 feet, but was not enough to beat James Brown's record Dainty length of 149 feet in 2013.
In case you missed it, or if you're hankering to relive some of the Dainty fun, one of our board members has created a photo album of snapshots from yesterday's event. If you went yesterday, try finding yourself in the crowd!
Below are some of our favorite pictures (don't those clouds look painted?). Click here to view the rest of the album.

Local news outlet, WDRB, also has a great slideshow with pictures of the event on their website.
Also, check out Dainty: A Democratic Pit Stop in Louisville on the Road to Fancy Farm from WFPL which touches on the political affiliations of Dainty and includes a video of some local politicians, including KY Attorney General Jack Conway, taking a swing.
