All we can say is "WOW"!   Thank you to all of our sponsors, organizers, volunteers, attendees, and vendors for making the 2008 Fall Fling a resounding success!   Your generosity helped us raise over $6000 for scholarships and shoe donations to deserving runners.  We had over 250 in attendance at the Twin Lakes Brewery on November 8.   This is one for the record books, at least until next year!   Thanks again for your support of the club and our scholarship fund.
Additional photos of our fun event can be found here.  Thanks to Laura Slowik for the photo album!

Thank you to everyone who came out on March 29 to participate in the Mike Clark Memorial Run.  The date was especially appropriate, as Mike's birthday was the day prior.  We had about 60 people come for the group run, which may be a record!   Unfortunately, our attempts for a pre-run group photo were unsuccessful.   Even more friends and family of Mike's came to our post-run breakfast.   We're all very grateful to Mike Monagle for hosting and providing a fine meal.   Here are a few photos from the post-run celebration.   Thanks again for making this tribute to a beloved member of our community a great success!
