Name our Last Sunday in February run 2018!
« on: January 03, 2018, 02:23:48 pm »
For those that don't know me, I used to be a full time tax guy, and typically worked Jan-Apr each year like a friggin idiot.  Nine years ago, after my first SnoFari as a trail leader, I decided to get together with some friends and play in the snow on the last Sunday in February.  We had a great time, I enjoyed the day off from work, then went back to work for another six weeks without a break.  Over the years the event moved around, gathered some friends new and old, and eventually became an official run on the club calendar.

Fast forward to 2018 - I am no longer a full time tax guy although I still do some tax work on the side, but not at anything near the pace and intensity of the "good old days".  Each year after the first, we have come up with some little tag for that year - Take 2, v3, IV, Episode 5, etc up to "The Ocho" last year named after the silly TV station in the movie "Dodgeball" (ESPN8 - The Ocho!).  This will be our ninth run on the last Sunday in February, and it is time for a new name.  You the potential participants need to pick a clever name for our ninth run, no repeats allowed.

How do we feel about Rocks and Valleys this year?  I have a call in to Ron to see if they are available

It's your run Paul, but I prefer the trails.

R&Vs works for me.   Haven't had a "R&V fix" in a while.

Dave wouldn't post his suggestion out of concern it was in bad taste, but I will do it for him:  Last Sunday in February "99" (hits the #9 year of the event, plus the 99% blockage of my artery that led to my MI).  OK, I thought it was funny...

How about "3 squared"
Does anyone else smell that?  Smells like burnt hot dogs and transmission fluid!

Because I am always a smart alec, especially when itmcomes to life events that should totally freak me out, I am going with Dave's irreverent ....

Last Sunday in February "99"!!
