So far, about 75 swimmers have RSVPed for the swim next Saturday (8/27). If you want to practice the 70.3 swim course (1.2 miles), please send an e-mail to you know where (email@example.com).
Immediately following the swim is the OCC Gran Fondo. Please see the OCC website (onondagacyclingclub.org) for registration details. In a nutshell, Pay $20 in advance. When you arrive, $10 will be refunded. Here’s what you get for your $10. Ride either the 70.3 course or a 22 mile option with sag support. There will be prizes, a treasure hunt, free ice cream at the Official 70.3 Pit Stop in DeRuyter, and a catered BBQ afterwards. You will also be granted an OCC membership for the remainder of the year. That’s a GREAT deal! But you must pre-register today!
Trashman Friday evening at Jamesville Beach! The weekend starts on Friday evening Aug 26 with the summer addition of the Trashman. The Trashman is our club service project. We are an Onondaga County Adopt-a Roadway organization and we have taken on the task of cleaning up a one mile stretch of Apulia Road near Jamesville Beach.
We will meet at 6PM, Friday August 26, on Apulia Road near Gate 2(just south of the main entrance). Please park on the west side of Apulia Rd., opposite Gate 2. Bring work gloves and old clothes and foot wear- long pants recommended, if it’s not ridiculously too hot. We will have trash bags and safety vests. We will pick up and bag trash for an hour. We have no organized run or ride associated with this event, but feel free to do so on your own before or after.
If you are doing the open water swim on Saturday the 27th and haven’t earned your free entry into that yet by previously volunteering, picking up trash on Friday night will save you $5 on the swim on Saturday morning.
I hope to see a lot of you there on Friday the 26th at 6PM. We would like to see our area around the park looking good for the Syracuse Ironman 70.3, just three weeks after that.
Send me an email if you are coming, or have questions.
