Still basking in the glow of the 2008-2009 Grand Prix?  Loathe to leave it all behind?  Team Turtles invites all club members to the home of Charlie Thoms in Chatham for an afternoon and evening of “ringing out the Grand Prix season and ringing in the coming of warm weather running.”  Bring a drink, bring a dish, bring a basketball.  Festivities begin at 3:00pm on this Saturday, 4 April and everyone is invited for a pre-gala fun run of about 2.75 miles on the Barclay’s Pond trails.  Anybody looking for some extra distance can hop on the nearby bike trail for a few more easy, flat miles.  Check out the flyer or contact Charlie for more information at 508.776.5483.
