I think we may need name tags.

When we had our first get together at The Wolfe...the pre-race pasta dinner we had names tags (generously provided by the Federal Government no less...courtesy of a maniac). Many people put both their RM names and their birth names on the tag. I think as a group we found the tags really useful...and it was a great icebreaker...as people strolled around and discovered what Maniacs look like a real life :D :D

ETA: hmmm...maybe we could write our names on our race bibs...just a thought... :D

ride request to ATB from TO

Postby roadrunner » Fri Mar 02, 2007 11:38 am

HI everybody. I am visiting Toronto from Winnnipeg and just wondering if I can get a ride to Around The Bay the day of the race or if I can share floor space and expenses on hotel room day before. Roadrunner - Ed W.

It looks like I will take the train back to Ottawa after the race. This raises one question. Are there Toronto Maniac willing to give me a lift to the train station? I plan to take the train leaving at 6:30pm.
I run because it's fun.

I expect I will be taking the train back to Kingston. At this point no one has "reserved" a seat in our car...so how about we plan to get you to the train station.

Looking forward to meeting y'all in person.

CBC TV's Sunday Report is planning to film some joggling at the race too – pretty cool.
