Club Meeting April 2021

Was good to get together with the 25 or so people that showed up in person and the handful of people on the Zoom session for the family style dinners and beverages at the April 2021 meeting.

* Kudos to the Olde Erie for accommodating us as things are starting to re-open!

* We had some lively discussions and major catching up to do and so kind thanks to all who took the time to RSVP and stop in.

Topics Discussed included:

Our officers and business reports including the Winter Series 2021 update.

Updates from the Chester Kiwanis 5k race by Richard Robillard and the inaugural Orange County Chamber 5k by Chloe Peer.

Track, Drew Priest and Thursday's R4DT Group Run with Dave Madden were also available for comment and questions.

Updated and discussed the Grand Prix races. Check the Grand Prix Calendar if you are in the series!

We added another chair to the Orange Runners Club board with the addition of a Club Chaplain, Dave Billings. Welcome Dave! He is is also a ground pounder of note [Hall of Fame Doc] and his experience will benefit our running community. Dave's contact information is on the contact page, and I look forward to hearing more from him in the future.

Much more went on, including the ability to chat with our members and friends
in real time and space.

Looking forward to 2021 running season.

(Can't belive was too busy to get a photo.)

Good Running to you!

We are going to again meet in person for the April 2021 meeting on
Thursday April 8th starting at 7PM back at the Olde Erie in Middletown!

Dinner will be started at ~7:30PM.

Plan on coming?

Please send us a head's up so that we can let the Olde Erie know, (they requested it) so to better take care of us.

It's easy, and you can use the Feedback form and check the RSVP box.



Or text me, Club President or another board member - See you there.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the March club meeting on Thursday the 4th.

We had lively and animated conversations on the recently completed Winter Series, some upcoming races and events in the pipeline, and what we can do moving forward.

Lots of unknowns again this year, but that makes it a challenge. You like challenges, right?

Also at this meeting was the start of the distribution for the Confluence Running member discount cards.

ORC Discount Card 2021

We also enjoyed the attendance of the members who choose to 'Zoom in' and as always technology is your friend, LOL ;-)

We are planning on the next club meeting now for April 8th and with some businesses beginning to open back up we have some hopes we will be able to run, meet, and eat together again, with some reservations.
