WCRC Members Summer Run & Pool Party & Cookout RESCHEDULED

The second 2014 WCRC member summer run / pool party / cookout HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO SUNDAY AUGUST 24, hosted by Tom and Sharon Chase at 42 Moulton Street Newburyport, MA: http://goo.gl/maps/BJ8J. All WCRC members and their guests are invited to participate.

Optional Run

The run will commence at 1:00 PM. The route will be a lolliloop out to Maudslay State Park and back along Ferry Road and Pine Hill Road Newburyport. Ferry turns into Pine Hill and is a very flat country road. Maudslay State Park has some minor hills and has mostly hard packed trails . Not much vehicle traffic, but no sidewalks, so running on the left is strongly encouraged.


Tom has mapped out 5 miles (about one mile to the park then a 3 mile loop in the park) if you want to go longer (and tougher) you can either repeat the park loop or go out and back on Hoyts Lane or Curzon Mill Road. There will be water on the route for runners going longer distances, probably in the parking lot at 3.25 miles.

Mandatory Summer Party

The pool party will follow the run, probably around 2:00 – 2:30 PM. The WCRC is sponsoring this summer run series for WCRC members and their guests, so we’ll have burgers/dogs, other grille items, munchies, refreshments, and some tunes. Due to liability issues for both the WCRC and the host, this is a BYOB (cans if possible) event. Guests are also welcome to bring a ready to eat dish or dessert to share, and a lawn chair if possible.

Rain/Unseasonable weather date, Sunday August 24, 1:00 PM. THIS IS NOW THE ACTUAL DATE!

For planning purposes, runners and/or partiers should let Tom and Sharon know in advance if they plan on coming. Again, the WCRC is providing the grill items so we need a reasonable count to avoid wasting a large amount of food or alternatively running out of food in the first hour.

WCRC Members Summer Cruise August 16

There are still a few slots left for the 2014 WCRC Summer Cruise – Saturday, August 16, 2014. The Cruise departs City Dock, Newburyport at 2 pm sharp on the sailing catamaran Ninth Wave. Room for a max of 48 so sign up soon. The Cruise is open to WCRC members and their families. You will not have to worry about it being the classic three hour cruise – since it’s only 2 1/2 hrs. long. We can bring snacks, entertainment, etc, but alcoholic drinks must be bought on the boat. The club will be subsidizing the cruise so as to keep the cost at only $20 per person – a real bargain. (Don’t forget that drinks will be extra). RSVP to Doug Zechel at: doug@smilinwideatryeharbor.com. Click here for more information.
