News and Notes

CVR Birthdays this week:

Happy Birthday to: Jaime Gadwah, Nicholas Managan (new age group!), Fred Pond, & Meg Voisin!

Greetings from a damp Adamant,

The days are growing shorter here in Vermont. With those shorter days comes an end to the Tuesday fun runs. It becomes too dark to see and more importantly, be seen, when running at 5:30. This will especially be the case after the time change the beginning of November. This Tuesday, October, 25th will be the last Fun Run.

There is a tradition of the fun runners to go out after the last run and celebrate with dinner at a local restaurant. The usual location has been Julios but I’m told they are not open on Tuesdays now.  So, if anyone has a suggestion of where to grab a bite to eat Tuesday evening, either post it on the CVR Facebook page or email myself  ( andresen41@gmail )or Darrel ( ) and we’ll get it up on the Facebook page.

As the days are getting shorter (at both ends), please get your neon hats and jackets on and turn on your blinking lights before you step out the door.

Mark Your Calendars
The next CVR club meeting is coming up November 7th! We’ll be presenting next year’s race calendar so plan on attending. I’ll let you know time and place soon.

Volunteer Signup
There are still three club races left this year. Tim always is in need of volunteers!   Please consider volunteering. This year, we are accepting your sign up on our website. Click here to check out the signup site. Click on “Volunteer for a CVR Race”. If any issues, please reach out to our webmaster John Hackney

Using the volunteer’s app, race directors are responsible for making any final changes to their list of volunteers within 2 or 3 days after their race. Then, using the ‘Set volunteer status’ item on their menu, they should set the volunteer status of their race to Final to prevent any more changes from being made.
