Hi, CV Runners,

Unofficial Fun Run #2 had a Yuuuuge turnout…. of acrobatic clowns…and Murphy. Not shown: Dot Martin, who couldn’t wait around for the antics, and ace photographer Greg.


Winter Long Run: Beth Daut will host this Saturday’s (3/26) winter long run at Red Hen Baking Company in Middlesex. Start time is 9:30 am. Beth will make a decision on dirt-road route vs pavement route later in the week based on conditions. E-mail Beth with questions at bethdaut@gmail.com . And, as always, it is a good idea to give the host a heads-up that you plan to come. You’re less likely to get left behind that way!

We had a successful Annual Meeting last Sunday in Adamant. Good food, and a turn out of some 25 members. The Nominating Committee’s slate was voted in, and the Budget Committee’s recommendations approved. The club voted to support youth and high school running at the same levels as last year. Ann Bushey is coordinating those grants.
Donna’s reign officially begins April 1; she is putting together her transition plan. Past Pres Greg will step in as manipulator of the non-member race contact list.
Quick poll: should Eric and Donna not move into the new house, but instead dedicate it as permanent official CVR Clubhouse?

Now that the budget proposals are official, you’ll be asked, when you renew your membership, if you want to get paper newsletters in the mail. If you don’t choose, or if you had already paid dues for multiple years and don’t let Allie know, you’ll have chosen email by default. (click here to renew: http://cvrunners.org/mmbrapp.html )
