    Facta non verba

    SYBIL: I just got back from Sybil. It was very well-organized and a very enjoyable event. Race DirectorsDavid Farquhar and Tony Galfano put on a great race.And the group of laconics supporting them did aterrific job, in particular Eileen & Bob Davis, for theirefforts back at the VFW in setting up and preparing thepost-race refreshments. The field for the 5OK was 39starters, with 37 finishers - This is probably a recordfield. The only disappointment was that only fourteams participated in the two-person relay. Where theh were the rest of you? On a personal note: manythanks to Joanna Nash for being the "support crew" forLee and me throughout the entire race. We couldn'thave done it without you.

    BOSTON: Lots of Taconics participated in the 100thBoston Marathon. Aside from a few glitches, which areinevitable in handling nearly 40,000 runners, the overallexperience was wonderful. Results are on the TRRChome page which you will find at this URL: (http://members.aol.com/gregtrrc/trrc.htm).

    RYE DERBY: Also posted on the TRRC home pageare the results of the Rye Derby 5M. Congratulations toGreg Diamond for providing such speedy results to thefolds at the Rye "Y". They have never gotten them asquickly, nor as accurately. Eamon Coghlan was particularly impressed by how soon the results were postedand the award winners identified. The rest of theTaconic support team was outstanding: ; Registrationwas ably handled by Rich Adamski Carol Hansen, JackMagrone, Nancy Young, Joan Deitrick, Sarah Collins,Joanna & Shannon Nash, Scott Abercrombie andDebbie Kenney. At the finish line, providing the set-upand handling the double chute operation, were RichNash, Steve Quinn, Joe Porcaro, Bob McKeon, GretaOlsson, Vinnie Juliano, Bill Foley, Scott Abercrombie,Debbie Kenney, Jack Magrone and Doug Miller. Thisis a fabulous team of individuals who all pulled togetherbeautifully and did Taconic proud. Our stock roseconsiderably because of their efforts. Thanks to you all.

    I certainly would like to see more Taconics at our races,supporting the club. Come to volunteer OR come torun.. .but COME!
