August 15 - Team-Building Day at Silver Springs

Mail is forthcoming to share details on our Day 2 practice at Silver Springs.  We will spend the day there, with two workouts, some softball and ultimate frisbee, a baggo tournament, breakfast & lunch, plus a trip to Maciano's Pizza in Yorkville for some dinner.  We meet at the Sugar Grove BP gas station at 7am to depart and about 7pm on the return.  Any parents able to help with grilling at lunch, or rides down and back, should contact Coach Clarey via email (chad.clarey@gmail.com).

Watch your mailboxes next week for the specific details and don't forget to complete the permission slip, to be turned in on the first day of practice.

Breakfast Runs Scheduled... 7/27 and 8/3

We have been blessed to have had the opportunity to enjoy Saturday Morning Breakfast Runs with the Park Family and the Gale Family this summer.

Now, we have another pair of Saturday morning runs and feasts:

July 27th - Will Kuipers hosts at his family farm.  1N318 Watson Road in Maple Park, from 7:00-10:30
Runners coming to Will's should remember their manners, and their swimsuit & towel!

August 3rd - Sean Spaetzel will take a turn hosting.  613 Hickory in Sugar Grove, also starting at 7:00.
Once again, if the weather's right... bring your swimsuit and towel.  Manners too, please.

Big thank you to all our families who have hosted the runners this summer.  It's a treat for the team to have this chance to run, eat and bond.

First Day of Practice Is Set! August 14 @ 7am

We will start our season on Wednesday, August 14 at 7am in the cafeteria at KHS.  Please be prepared to run by having your up-to-date physical paperwork turned in, or in your hand.  We will run at the bike path, and return to KHS around 9:15 or so.

SAME DAY!  We head to Marklund for our annual visit with the clients.  The team will board a bus with Coach Ecker at 12:15pm sharp.  After our visit with these wonderful adults, we will head over to Alice's Place for a snack.  Should be done around 3:30 or 4pm, back at KHS.

July 8 Practice is On, BUT BE PREPARED!

This morning's run at Waubonsee will be on as scheduled, however when we see lightning, remember that practice ends.  High school runners may return to KHS for weights.  Middle school runners should have rides available in the event the weather limits our fun.
