Mill City Team Roster!!

The list of teams are on the Mill City Website!  As it was to large to past in this announcement, I ask that you check out the Mill City Website.

AARC are the first 16 teams listed.  Please take a few minutes and look at your team, leg you are running etc. .   Team Captains, please make sure you reach out to your team or have a sign made so your team can find you the morning of the race.  

As a gentle reminder, each runner will need to pay $10 to the team captain who will pass over to Muriel in exchange for your numbers.  We will meet at Arms Park, down by Stark Brewery.  The parking lot is for UNH parking and there is no school on Sundays.  We will meet at 6:30 a.m.

For those of you new to the Mill City Relay, you will have no regrets!  Such a great time!!  


Holiday Party – Friday December 1st!


Friday December 1st, is our annual Holiday Party.  Due to a scheduling issue, the Holiday Party has been moved this year to the following:
Great North Aleworks
1050 Holt Ave
Manchester, NH  03109
Time:  7:30-10:30
Food will be catered by Angela’s Pasta Shop, and we will have appetizers, salad, lasagna, stuff shells, and dessert.  Great North Aleworks has many different kinds of beers, wine and cider.  
This was a tough decision to move the party, we always want to support our team members, however it was put out to a vote to the members and it was voted to keep the date as we would have had to move it to Thursday night to keep the venue.  We will have Peter put us in for Stark next year again for the first Friday of December.
Please remember it is $15 per person, spouses, significant others etc are welcome.  Please bring a new unwrapped toy and any warm clothing to be donated.  We will do a raffle as well, and hopefully we will have some numbers for Boston to be given away.

You did not get the Holiday Party invite??

I have heard from just a few that they did not get the Holiday Party invite.  Well…were you naughty or nice?  Or maybe we simply do not have your email address…or correct email address.  Maybe we had your email address as fluffy slippers@santa.northpole,  or… If so, I don’t know who you are.  

If you did not receive the invite, please respond to this post with your name and email address.  We have lots of new communication tools such as surveys so our members can make decisions, suggestions etc and we are excited to talk about all this and more at the Holiday Party!!  Anders has been working hard behind the scene so lets make sure you get all the new scoop!!
