Hi CVR Members,

The Participation Series ended last week, however the Fall Series starts today with the Sodom Pond 4 Mile Race!

I need to start out this week’s News and Notes with a correction for the list of runners who qualified for the “10 Event Club”. I missed one member last week. There were nine members who qualified. The 10 Event Club are those who ran all 10 events in the Participation Series. Here is the correct list.

The 10 Event Club (Participation Series)

Cheryl Lassell, Donna Smyers, Dot Martin, Elizabeth McCarthy, Joe Merrill, John Martin, Phylis Tillinghast , Thomas Hogeboom and John Valentine. 

Article in The World
There is an article in this week’s The World about our Participation Series. I have copied it here. If you cannot read it please click this link and go to page 6 or pick up a copy of The World! Thanks Donna for your efforts in getting it published.

Several of you did respond to me with comments and thoughts about the Participation Series. Most everyone who participated enjoyed the series and felt a little competitive when they saw someone else’s time for an event and wanted to beat it. That is great news since the Fall Series will have first overall male and female prizes. Go out and be competitive!
