SVR ANNUAL BANQUET–March 22, 2015 at 5pm!

This year’s award banquet will be held at the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center in Front Royal, VA!  Due to ever increasing attendance, we need a bigger location, and the Center offers us lots of space and a beautiful setting.  The Banquet will be held Sunday March 22, 2015 from 5-8pm.  The address to the 4-H Center is 600 4-H Center Drive Front Royal, VA 22630.  Doors will open at 4:30, please bring a dish to share!  As always SVR will be providing BBQ! From the Center’s website: “Located in beautiful Harmony Hollow, just outside Front Royal, Virginia, the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center is a unique, beautiful location that is home to year-round camps and educational programs, as well as providing facilities and services to groups seeking a relaxed, economical retreat experience.” The Center has lots of interesting programs including a low and high ropes challenge course, zip line, two sided climbing wall, hiking trails, archery, and shooting range in addition to its extensive camping programs for kids. Great place!

This year we will be using RunSignUp.com to sign up for club membership and for Winter Series registration. You must sign up for club membership before signing up for the Winter Series to get the club discount. When you register, please put today’s date as membership start date. Click here for the club membership link and get signed up! And while you have your credit card out, register for the Winter Series too! Please be sure to read the fine print (e.g. inclement weather policy, details on how the races are scored in the Series) found in the Winter Series Information link in the header bar above. Click here for a .pdf of the Winter Series flyer.

Note: SVR membership runs on the calendar year so except for lifetime members, everyone needs to renew membership at this time. If you signed up for membership over the last few weeks, we are in the process of carrying those memberships over to RunSignUp for 2015 as part of our transition from using RaceIt to RunSignUp.

If you have any problems/questions with the club membership or want to be sure your very recent membership done through RaceIt carried over, contact Michelle VanHorn at johnsonfan@frontiernet.net. Problems with registering for the Winter Series or questions not answered in the Winter Series Information above? Contact Winter Series Director Jamey Walters at jamey312@gmail.com. We expect there will be some glitches as we migrate to RunSignUp, so please let us know if you are having a problem or don’t understand.

While you are waiting for the Winter Series to start, check out our calendar above or the right sidebar for the upcoming SVR sponsored races. The Berryville Turkey Trot races are a great way to warm up for the Series. Hope to see you at the races!
