Can we recruit some of these folks for the Tuesday Fun Runs????


FUN RUN is happening every Tuesday at 5:30. Our first week saw a fairly good contingent, even a few out of staters, then last week the weather declined and it was not a great showing. This Tuesday is the first day of a much awaited change in our weather pattern. I’m sure it is time! We can’t have March weather all summer on Tuesdays, can we? So get your friends and come on out to join the group!

The next CVR meeting reminder! Monday May 15 (that’s tomorrow, or maybe today if you aren’t reading late this evening) at the home of Dick and Sandy Ferno at 47 Ferno Rd in WIlliamstown. Directions are on the website. Per usual, pot luck at 6, meeting at 6:30.

Congratulations to all who did the Corporate Cup 5K. I saw lots of CVR names scanning the results. As far as I could tell, Dylan Broderick was the only one who ran the double: 1 mile at the track Wed (6:06), followed by a top 10 finish in 6:33 pace the next night at Corporate Cup. Maybe we’ll get a race round-up again soon for you to peruse, or maybe somebody will write about the experience for the CVR Newsletter? Get the article in by next Monday! because…
Deadline for CVR Newsletter submissions is May 22–just after Barre Town Spring Run. Please send any fun reports and pictures to Bob Howe lucycarol18@gmail.com.

Barre Town Spring Run 5K is this coming Saturday! This starts the real season–not quite as sustained as the last couple of years since we skipped Adamant and Worcester was cancelled, but it still gets busy for the next 5 weeks. It is the 2nd CVR/ORS Race Series event for 2017. Contact Andrea McLaughlin ajvtskier@msn.com to let her know if you can volunteer.

And a reminder….If you have not renewed your membership by June 1 (I see some names with a 2016 on the list that should not be there), you will be purged from the email list on June 1 or soon thereafter and not receive the newsletter and not be counted in CVR/ORS series. As a former president of CVR might say….”don’t be that person”.


Help Wanted:
The Spaulding HS track team is supporting the Vermont City Marathon, in Burlington, on May 28th, by handing out water and Gatorade on Lakeside Avenue, near Oakledge Park. There are still some positions available (great place to see people!). Don Singer vtsinger@charter.net can provide you with additional information, or see below to sign up.
