I have been having some technical issues with the website where I was not able to upload contents for the August newsletter. I posted the information on the groups Fasebook page. A September issue was not produced. I hope that there will be no further problems. - Eric VanOsdol (editor)

A Good Run

Our RCRC annual banquet is coming up fast. It will be at the Myrick Park
Center on Friday, November 11 at 6 pm. We need several things from our
members by then.

1. Nominations for Male and Female Runner of the Year, Most Improved, and
Rookie of the Year. Please get these in soon. We will have a maximum of 3
nominees on the ballot in each category. Your nominee will have a much
better chance of being on the ballot if write your reasons for nominating.
We will do the on line voting again.

2. We are honoring another group of legends this year. Those who have run
more than 50 marathons and ultras combined. If you are in this category
please get the following to Kathy Moen.

a.First marathon/ultra date and place.
b.Favorite marathon or ultra.
c.A memory or something important you would like to share.
d.A picture or two of you running an ultra or marathon.
e.Your total number of ultras and marathons as of the date of the party.

Please send these to Kathy Moen at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  Please get
these in soon so Kathy has time to get the presentation made.

3. Make sure all your race results are in so you don't miss out on any of
the objective awards.

4. Please RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. We need to get a
count for food.

5. Last, but not least we need a new president. Looking for volunteers or
nominations. The job isn't bad and the pay is less than you would think.


Thanks to all those who volunteered for the aid station on the Maple Leaf
Half route. Cheryl and Peter Franta, Tony and Marina Toledo and family,
Chris Erickson, RJ and Linda Miller, Jeff and Sandy Wall and family,and
