CVR Birthdays this Week!
Happy Birthday this week to: Jean Stetter (new AG!), Matthew Germaine, Cale Ellingson, Rebecca Copans, and Theresa Noonan.

Busy week ahead….Next up:

This coming Monday:
August 14 CVR Meeting at the home of Denise Ricker, 399 Murray Hill Dr. in Montpelier. See you there.

The meeting is quickly followed on Thursday, August 17 by the next CVR/ORS Race Series Race, the Berlin Pond 5 Miler at 6 pm. Get some points and/or contact Jeff Prescott or Sue Emmons if you want to help out or have questions. If you haven’t gotten any points yet, I believe this is the last opportunity to get started and still get the full 5 count for races. Who will go for it with 5 to go?

NSB 5K changes for 2017:

1. There will be NO race-day registration due to construction at the bank this year. The building is closed, and so registration is on-line only. Folks can register until midnight the day before the race.

2. The order of the races is flipped due to Amtrak. The 5k is at 9:30, followed by the kids’ race at 10:30.

3. Vermont Senior Games is having separate awards for racers who are 50+ by the end of this year. All eligible runners have to do is to check off the VSG box on the race application.

The NSB 5K and 1 Mile are CVR/ORS Race Series events. Get some points and a VSGA award at the same time. Of course those qualified to run the 1 Mile are not qualified for the Vermont Senior Games.

All smiles at the Leafpeepers Training start Saturday as the rain held off until noon.
