It has been a while since the RMEC has had a social gathering that wasn't at a race, on the roads, or in the trails. I think it is time that we all get together for an old fashion cookout and pot luck dinner. Plus, we never formally had our annual meeting and I never tried to collect annual dues (although some of you overzealous members sent a check anyway).
May 15th is the date for the Fun Run for Charities, so I expect this is a weekend that most of you are in town. I know we will never pick a weekend when all 50 club members are in Rocky Mount, so we kind of need to pick a date and go with it. So if we do a cookout the late afternoon/evening of Saturday May 15th, who can make it?
EVERYONE is welcome. If you run every weekend, or have never been out to a group run, this is a chance to meet everyone. Don't be intimidated about showing up. To be honest, no one in the club knows everybody (not even me). So don't feel like you are going to show up and not fit in. The RMEC prides itself on being an organization that welcomes and encourages anybody who wants to run.
Please post a comment if you would like to attend. We still need to work out the details about where and the exact time. I will send out an email too so everyone knows. Right now I am just getting a general idea. Families are of course welcome!
This weekend will also give us a chance to update the picture at the top of the blog!
