Election time is nearly upon us and all elected positions are open for nomination. If you’d like to nominate someone for a position – or recommend a particular member for an appointed role – or even suggest new positions or changes in the way the club is run, go to http://www.capecodathleticclub.org/election-nom.shtml and submit your nominations now! Then attend the February or March club meetings to discuss events, nominations, and the year ahead for the CCAC. Nominees must be seconded (i.e.: more than one member must nominate the individual) and nominees must accept their nomination via e-mail to ccac@capecodathleticclub.org or in person to a current club officer before the April meeting. The roster of nominees and suggested appointees will be posted as nominations are sent in. Be sure to attend the April meeting to place your votes for your top picks and take an active role in the future of the CCAC!

Since we didn’t clearly advertise how we’d be scoring teams (all 7 races vs. best 4 of 7) for this inaugural Grand Prix Team Challenge (and honestly didn’t know if any teams would even remain cohesive enough to make it through two events!), we’ve decided to recognize two teams in the mixed division: YPD Blue netted the most points overall with consistent showings at all races; the NRHS Warriors consistently outperformed all other mixed teams, scoring 10 points in all races where they were able to field a full team – with the exception of a single loss to Happy Trails in Dennis.  Happy Trails came on strong but needed one more race and one more point to catch the Warriors in the mixed division.  Congratulations to all teams and we’ll see you at the banquet!

A picture perfect day, a great band, tons of food, an endless supply of wine and beer and … oh yeah, a 4.5 mile hilly run through Pochet Neck and Nauset Beach … bids adieu to the 2008-2009 Winter Grand Prix. Over a hundred crowded in to the Graeber’s house to enjoy the run and company … and after a slightly delayed start, Joe Navas paced Ryan Gattoni and Geof Newton to the finish with hardly a deep breath. Visiting guest Tora Olafsen led the women’s field in a time of 30:38 as Mary Ryan went head-to-head with Katie McCully for a narrow 2-3. Times were slow across the board as hills, beach sand, and an icy gravel road took their toll on weary legs. In the overall points competition, Barry Merrill edged Nauset’s Brandon Bausch by one point to take the men’s title (the scorekeeper recuses himself) and Polly Papsadore handily trumped the women’s field by almost 400 points with solid performances in every race. Able to stay a hard-charging Happy Trails team, YPD Blue scored the mixed category win in the first ever Grand Prix team face-off while Level 5 took top honors for the men, dominating each race after the first “what team should I be on” confusion at Campari’s. Now we celebrate the fine season with a night out at the Dennis Inn – we’ll see you there! [Banquet Information] [GP#7 Results] [Final Standings]

Since peanuts and peanut butter are a major fuel source for us, the recent salmonella scare in peanut products has made many athletes nervous. Clif Bar has announced a voluntary recall of all Clif and Luna products which might be impacted by ingredients from the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). Powerbar reports that none of their products include potentially tainted ingredients and are safe to continue using. [More from Clif …]
