September 4-5, 2004
Report and Results

There are three kinds of men. The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves. --Will Rogers

Note that I changed the splits to the 24 hour clock. I did it manually by adding 12 or subtracting from 24. If I messed up in the process, please let me know. All of Carolyn's splits are here now. More information and pictures will be coming soon.

The Fellowship of the Ring

The Fellowship met on September 4 to induct new members. The Ring is a 71 mile circuit of the Massanutten Trail. The trail is long, hard, rocky, and slow.

Sue Johnston's time is a new best by a woman, bettering Bethany Hunter's time in 2002. Watch for more photos and reports soon.
