Destruction Derby

2016 Hangtown Destruction Derby CANCELLED.

The Placerville Police Officers Association has decided to cancel the annual Hangtown Destruction Derby. We realize this decision represents an end to an era of a long standing traditional event. We also understand there will be many fans and participants that will be disappointed in this decision. Our association members understand and share this disappointment. This decision comes with heavy heart however, after consideration of all mitigating factors that were weighed; we concluded it was the most fiscally responsible decision. Our derby has been the primary fundraiser for the associations charitable endeavors. However, as of recent years we have been challenged on many levels. These challenges have proven too costly. The Derby has not been providing any funds for charity and has been a financial liability for the association. The Placerville Police Officer’s Association thanks everyone for who has been supporting the our association and the derby. We will find ways to renew our community support.

Respectfully:
The Placerville Police Officer’s Association Membership
