Upcoming Club Events, July through September

Summer Track Classic Series – Wednesdays, July 1, 8, & 9
Join us for this traditional favorite – a low-key, all-fun event at Riley Field adjacent to PTC Elementary School.  Registration starts at 6 PM with the first event at 6:30.  Of course, we can’t pull this off without volunteers.  So if you can help out, please contact Rachel Johnson (630-417-9639), or Bill Werling (770-460-1425).  If you are striving for your 1000 Mile Club volunteer requirements, this is a great way to get in your required three volunteer sessions!!  We also need a Freeze Pop Chief to ensure the kids get their reward at the end of the 50 and 100 yard dash as Teri Besch will be traveling cross country along with Ray in their Model A Ford this summer!
Sign Up for Peachtree 10K Buses - Saturday, July 4
Both buses are now filled. If you would like to register for the bus wait list, fill out the form at www.ptcrc.com/bus. You will be notified of an open seat if and when it becomes available. The bus costs $10 for members and $20 for non-members.
Annual 4th of July Family Picnic – Saturday, July 4
There will be no club meeting for July. However, in lieu of the monthly meeting, we will once again have our annual family picnic on July 4th graciously hosted by Dick and Jan Allis (202 Camp Creek Trail, Peachtree City), from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The club will provide BBQ, lemonade, tea, some sodas, and water. Guests are asked to bring either a side dish or dessert. Come celebrate the 4th and swap war stories about the race that morning!
Please help us get an accurate headcount and save money so we don’t order too much food by completing the survey at this link if you plan on attending:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LKJWNP7
