WooHoo, we are on!

grammypOctober 8, 2013

The Forest Service just called and in light of the small turnout we expect, and the fact that the run starts and ends on city property and not in the national forest, we can proceed with the run. Had they said no, we were planning on refunding those who had prepaid and putting up a sign explaining our situation and just asking for donations. Several people had contacted us and said they planned on coming and paying that morning and there would be no way of reaching everyone who might be planning to come. We have timers, shirts, medals, food, drink, and prizes ready to go, so we were gonna do something. So glad they agreed to let us do it. Now just gotta get the markers put out and registration packets put together.

This will be our hurrah as trail run coordinators.

Hopefully, now, you won't get rained out! We're feeling like ducks today! We've had steady rain for 2 days and are beginning to float.

No rain in the forecast till next Wed, so we should be good there. I have shirts sorted, posters done, quilts ready, registration packets ready, rest stop supplies sorted and packed, end of race supplies packed, time clock picked up, medals on ribbons and ready to present, and pound cake & banana nut muffins baked. All that is left is change for the registration table and ice.

Tomorrow I go to work so I can rest.

Beverly, Glad this worked out for you and Tim. You both deserve medals for what you've accomplished this year. Next year, maybe all you'll have to do is make the quilts and bake. :-)

Thanks everyone. Got home from work about 8 and Sara helped me load the van. Everything but the clock (battery is charging) and the signs are packed and ready to go. I'll post pictures tomorrow.
