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.

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. BusheyA@wssu.org.

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?
