Allegheny Mountain Madness event registration will include the following:
This event incorporates Gary Baker Memorial Day. If you didn't know Gary Baker, he was a longtime ACE member who was a strong advocate for the amusement industry and roller coaster preservation. He was heavily involved in the fundraising that lead to the restoration of Leap the Dips, the world's oldest roller coaster, which is located at Lakemont Park. He also served ACE in numerous capacities, including as regional representative for ACE Western Pennsylvania and as ACE's national events director, a position that he held for six years. Gary passed away unexpectedly in fall of 2009. This reoccurring event was created to honor Gary, who truly loved all parks, but especially the traditional ones. Lakemont Park and DelGrosso's Park were undoubtedly two of his favorites.
Gary Baker Memorial Miniature Golf Tournament
Next to roller coasters, one of Gary Baker's great passions was miniature golf. As a member of the PPA (Professional Putters Association), Gary played professionally! Throughout his time in ACE, he engaged many members to play and enjoy the sport, so a memorial tournament seems fitting, especially at one of his favorite parks, which he'd be pleased to know is now home to two miniature golf courses!
