It’s a sprint to the finish as we near the end of our 2015 season. We only have 6 runs left! Yikes! Keep on trucking Newbies. You can still earn your shirt.
Before we wrap it up there are some exciting events coming up. In October, we will be heading back to O’Doherty’s Irish Grille for the annual Flying Irish Halloween Party on October 29th. DJ Marathon will be rockin’ the house, so prepare your costume, and be ready to boogie! Nu Home Brew has graciously given up some cool shirts and gift certificates for us to raffle off. We will also be giving away this cooler from Deschutes Brewery. Enter to win this by showing up each week wearing your Flying Irish gear and entering your name in the drawing.
December 3rd will also be our End of the Season Party with a ton of fun and prizes. More to come on that in the next few weeks, so stay tuned…
Changes at Flying Irish
We just wanted to let all of you know some changes have taken place in leadership. The Board is dedicated to making sure the club is always in the foremost of our thoughts and nothing that you love about running on Thursdays will change!
That being said.. we would love to have some new faces join us on the Board and there are 3 positions up for election. If you love to run and want to serve the club – here is your chance!
If you are interested or know someone who might be qualified for any of those positions (descriptions and other criteria for each of the positions can be found in our Bylaws), send an email to Keely, at firstname.lastname@example.org Nominations must be received by November 1st.
