ABC#163/Multi-Sport, 5-22-21

ABC#163/Multi-Sport Day on May 2 was another great success with 54 participants and $3,010 donated to Timber Pointe Outdoor Center! Thanks so much to everyone who attended, donated, organized, brought food, and enhanced the day with your enthusiasm and friendship.

There was no swim but, hey, it’s still “Multi-Sport” because we still had more than one sport. The weather was great – perfect for running and hiking and biking and having a cookout.

At 8:00, we gathered to hear Allen McBride, the camp director, tell us a little about the camp and thank us for our contributions. We also took a group photo – the first group photo at an ABC run since February 2020. We are finally getting back closer to normal after all the pandemic related precautions. The runners then took off to either run the roads or run the trails. Thanks, Doug Ficca, for riding your trail bike to lead the runners through the camp trails.

At 10:00, the bicyclists gathered for a group photo, then to go on either a 13 mile ride or a 26 mile ride. We had two group leaders: Larry Schumacher for the 13 mile ride and Kevin McCarthy for the 26 mile ride.

At 12:00, all were rewarded with a great cookout at Stearns Lodge. Grilled chicken breasts, brats, hamburgers, all the fixings, and a variety of beverages! Thanks, Mike Johnson, for serving as chef. And thanks to the Lake Run Club for the food and beverages.

Thanks again to everyone who made this event another great success. A special thanks to the Lake Run Club for underwriting the costs so that we could continue the tradition of 100% of donations going to the charity. Thanks to Kevin McCarthy, John Pratt, Doug Ficca, and Allen McBride for all the organizing. Thanks to Audrey Sparks for being our photographer. Thanks to Meryl Brown for directing traffic to Stern Lodge. Thanks to Lisa Sparks for keeping the coffee cake tradition alive and to others who brought food or helped with other duties. What a great day!
