Its the spookiest time of the year! Not because its Halloween but its because I am never sure exactly what costumes certain people where to the Flying Irish Halloween Run 🙂 We will have some random off the wall talent contests to go along with the best male/female costumes with the winners winning Seahawks jerseys! Don’t show up without a costume or try to say your coming as a runner. Not gonna fly with the Flying Irish. Also, we are giving away the Deschutes Brewery Firepit this week as well. A whole lot of fun going on! Its also a special route that night. All that with DJ Marathon rocking it out for us. You can check him out at:https://www.facebook.com/DJMarathonSpokane
Also, unlike past years where we held the pumpkin carving contest after the run we will be mixing it up a little this year. Carve up your pumpkin in a Flying Irish theme and bring it to this week’s run. Every entrant gets a Flying Irish prize but the grand prize is a Flying Irish pint glass! And oh ya, we have a lot of pint glasses in stock again!
We have a Legacy Run coming up as well. Actually, make that two of them. Mark your calendars for November 6th and 13th as we will be running from O’Doherty’s that night with DJ Marathon rocking the house two weeks in a row!
This is the last few days to nominate a person for one of the open Board positions. See further below on the details. We haven’t heard much from people on nominations so please express your interest or if you know of someone who might be interested send their names our way. Deadline is November 1st for nominations. Without those people no Flying Irish next year!!!
See you all Thursday for the Halloween run!!
