Jeff Prescott named 21 CVR members he recognizes. Can you top that?


The Stowe Bike Club Wednesday Time Trials have finished for the year, so this week, I joined the Wednesday speed workout to force myself to continue to go hard once a week. Apparently, I just cannot push it unless somebody besides myself says “GO”. I am happy to report that the Tuesday runs and Wednesday track workouts are both going strong. I met new people both nights this week. If you are looking for a change of “pace” this fall, join one or both groups. The only regulars that I saw at both runs are Mack Gardner Morse and Manny Sainz. And I happen to know they both go really fast 2 nights in a row… and as of now, Mack is leading the CVR/ORS series for his AG and Manny is less than 20 points out of 1st in his.

SIGN UP TODAY!!!! The NSB 5K and 1 Miler are on-line only registration. NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION! Sign up now– Don’t get closed out from your next chance at CVR/ORS Series points and a chance to place at the Vermont Senior Games 5K.

Speaking of CVR/ORS points. Our intrepid points keeper, Jim Flint has already tallied up the Berlin Pond results in the standings posted on CVRunners.org. Wow, are some of the age groups competitive this year! The total number in the series is higher than ever and some people are already in the 480’s and 490’s. Those people will probably keep doing races to eke up their scores. There are 4 more opportunities to get 100 after all. Only Dot Martin has 500 sewn up already. I’m so glad I’ll be in the 60-69 next year. But by then Sue Hackney will probably be back out there again. Out of the frying pan and into the fire.
If you see any problems with your score, contact Jim Flint. If you don’t see an X next to your name in the volunteer column, remember you’ll need to get one to stay in the standings.

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. BusheyA@wssu.org.
