Monthly Club Meeting

November 2019

November's club meeting will have the social buffet dinner and be followed by a club meeting that features reports from officers including the upcoming club events such as the Jingle Jog and the 2020 Winter Series. November is also the month for nominations and considerations for positions in 2020. All are welcome.

Meeting Results

It was a well attended meeting and the Olde Erie even had to bring out an additional helping of pasta to support the all the attendees! In addition to regular business, there were a great number of shout-outs from the excellent races run recently including the Grand Prix and local events and of course the NYC Marathon, on Nov 3rd, where numerous members and friends including club president Valerie K. were supporting and cheering on the many who were fortunate enough to be included in the world record number, (52k+) of participants. - Well done!

We also had reminders on the upcoming club Grand Prix events including the Jingle Jog and the Delaware valley Turkey Trot (check Nov newsletter email for club discount info), and if you re-new or sign up early you also get the $5 membership discount. - More info here.

I was tasked with updating the club on the status of the pending opening of the Middletown Reservoir Trails (MRT) and I am happy to say it looks really good and I had a great time exploring the area and helping to map out the developing trail system, see some photos here: Middletown Reservoir 'White' Trail Marking. Nothing is written in stone yet for the naming or even the final paths of these trails so 'stay tuned'.

While general permissions to access these trails has not been granted, but as you can see it is moving in the right direction. Contact Ed O. or Dave M. for updates. Below is an image for the rough locations of the three trails ('Red, White and Blue') that are currently in development.
