2020 Run off the Grid Update

Body: 

Hello Everyone;

During the final preparation for Run Off the Grid this year, the organizers have determined that they need to limit
not only participants but volunteers on site.

As a result they have asked us to limit our participation to 5 volunteers this year.

The first five people to respond are:
Paul, VA3PC
Wanda VE3KOJ
Drew, VE3MAF
Lori, VE3LOR
Dave, VA3NBH

Run off the Grid is a GO - Sept 26th.

Body: 

Run off the Grid is a go with a limit of 100 participants.
This would have been the 10th year, but due to the registration limit, they are going to call it the 9.5 year anniversary.
They will have COVID-19 protocols in place, volunteers are asked to wear masks.
Race course will be in one direction this year, so the checkpoints will be less hectic.
Staggered start for the three races 45 minutes apart, with the shortest race (12.5k) leaving at 10:30.
No food for competitors at the checkpoints, only liquids in disposable cups.

2019 Hike for Hospice Update

Body: 

The 2019 Hike for Hospice event will be on May 5, 2019 in Laurier Woods. This
is an opportunity for people to enjoy the beauty of Nature!

This is a short event. We will meet at 0930ET in the parking lot at the end
of Brule Street to give out the SMEAC, assign checkpoints, and then head out
to our respective spots in Laurier Woods. During the event I will be roving
throughout the trails. The hike itself starts at 1100ET, and most
participants are expected to be clear by 1300ET. Last year we had some people
start their walk before 1030ET.
