Three winners of the Niagara-on-the-Lake’s new snow plow naming contest got their grip and grins at town hall Tuesday night.

Winners Jordana Hernder, Laura Hollemans and Carleen LeBlanc showed up for a quick handshake and photo op with the town’s leaders.

Hernder came up with Catch My Drift, whereas Hollemans came up with Skip the Ditches.

LeBlanc named three ploughs, including Sled Zeppelin, Snow-be-gone Kenobi and Darth Blader.

The “Star Wars” fan said it was rare to be a winner.

“Can’t even win the lottery these days, so it’s nice,” Leblanc joked.

The three contest winners said they learned about the contest through the town’s web pages and local media.
