If we have enough volunteers, so we will try and pair up newer pacers with experienced ones. Contact Nels Johnson via Facebook Message or by e-mail at csnyrox@yahoo.com by Saturday August 20th.

Big Thanks to our BAA volunteers from RIRR

Special thanks to the hard working travelling band of gear check zealots from RIRR! Really appreciate the time and effort you put forth to be an ambassador for our club and help pay back an organization that has been remarkably generous with our club as long as I have been around RIRR.
