I would like to participate but this is first Sunday, and I have to sing
that morning. If I can get there and leave by 9 am, I might do this.

I really urge everyone to sign-up for the Flying Pig BLT Station. It's a lot
of fun and I really look forward to it each year. We really need your help,
if we don't have enough volunteers we will have to cancel, which will leave
many runners very sad and tissue-less.
Not to mention that our affiliate will not get the money for participating.
Please sign-up today, you will not be disappointed!
