News and Notes from Donna

Northfield 5K and 1 Mile this Saturday!

Perfect summit day for Sandy Colvin and Gail Pelkey
(with not yet CVR member Chuck Schwartz)
Hi All,

The CVR/ORS series continues with the Northfield Savings Bank 5K on Sept 3. The 1 mile is at 9:30, the 5K at 10:30. Rowly tells me he has enough volunteers, so all of you can participate. I think a Saturday morning 5K is great because you can get your race in and then play or work as hard as you want the rest of the long weekend without worrying about how it will affect your race. Bring your friends and neighbors to help Northfield celebrate 5 years of recovery from Irene.

It was fun seeing so many CVR members at The Race to the Top of Vermont last weekend. I am betting that Jeff will have a summary soon, but I think I counted at least 22 members that I either saw participating or in the results. Only 4 of the 22 had the last name of Bushey. Quite a few CVR members made it to the podium, but the 3 first places I noticed were that Heather Voisin won the biking division overall for women and Brian Carlson and Keith Woodward won their AG in the men’s running divisions. Kip Roberts of ORS won the mens cycling division–he’s sort of an honorary CVR member as manager for our prime sponsor. If we get this many next year, we should bring the CVR tent and have a party.

Don’t forget to put Sodom Pond 4 Miler on your schedule for Wed Sept 14 and remember to contact June Burr to volunteer at Leafpeepers.
