CVR Birthdays this Week!
Happy Birthday this week to: Lowell VanDerlip, Maureen Carr, Tom Foltz, and Jay Stewart!

The 8th of the 2017 CVR/ORS Race Series, the Berlin Pond 5 Miler is at 6 pm this Thursday. Register at the Berlin Town Office on Shed Rd. between 4:45 and 5:45. Get some points or contact Jeff Prescott if you want to help out or have questions. Jeff actually thinks he has enough volunteers, but if you want to volunteer, contact him–sometimes last minute needs pop up and you could be the one that saves the day.

Reminder: The NSB 5K and 1 Miler are On-Line only race registration. NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION! Sign up now– Don’t get closed out!

CVR Meeting Report: We discussed changing the date for Paul Mailman 10 Miler next year and possible changes to Leafpeepers. Bob Murphy is heading up a group to propose a 2018 CVR schedule and ORS/CVR Series schedule at the November meeting. Please let Bob know if you have opinions about the race schedule, so would like to be on that committee. Greg Wight and John Valentine volunteered to form the nominating committee for next year’s Executive Committee. Please let either of them know if you would consider an officer’s position or would like to help find appropriate people to fill those positions. We definitely need a new President and Vice President in 2018. Of course you are welcome to volunteer for any position–all nominations will be cheerfully accepted. One other help wanted ad from the meeting…. Ann Bushey needs a co-director for the NYE 5K this year because she will be in CA for some time just before the race. If you can help Ann out, please let her know.

One other item…. We seem to be missing a couple of the Seiko printer timers. If you have borrowed them in the last year, be sure you do not have them tucked away somewhere. If you do, let me or Shannon know that you found one or 2 for us. Thanks!
