Winslow Theater to put on triathlon to raise money for new projector
Katherine Locke

WINSLOW, Ariz. - Stephen and LuAnne Hancock opened the Winslow Theater March 1, but without a new projector, the number of films the couple can show is limited.

The Hancocks hope to raise money for a new digital projector by putting on the inaugural "Racin' on 66" sprint triathlon on June 1.

LuAnne Hancock said she and Stephen opened the theater after an accident left Stephen looking for something to do. So far the theater has generated a lot of interest around Winslow.

"It's going really good, we've had a lot of people come. But we've only been open about two months so we are still getting the word out that it is open," Hancock said.

The reason for the race is simple - the theater needs a projector that isn't obsolete, Hancock said.

"We have to have a new digital projector preferably by the end of the year because it is going to be harder to get the 35 millimeter prints," Hancock said. "We will use all the money that comes in from the race toward the digital projector."

The digital projector will cost $40,000. Hancock is hoping that the sprint triathlon will help raise most of the money needed.

The triathlon begins with a 200-meter swim at an indoor swimming pool in Winslow. The bike race is 12.5 miles and the run is 3.1 miles. The bike and run will take place on Route 66.

"If we got 300 people that would be about $20,000 dollars," Hancock said. "Technically, we're hoping for 100 for the cost of the festival but money-wise we're hoping to get 300. I don't know if that is a good goal or not."

Early registration for individual runners is $69. Relay team registration is $99 and that price is good until May 15. After that and until May 31, registration for individual runners will be $79 and $109 for relay teams. On the day of the race, the fee for individual runners will be $89 and $119 for relay teams.
