December 19, 2016 note from everyone's friend
(WHOO'S now 75% Centenarian) Big Baz Hawley

This is your old RD mate BAZZA...  Yes, I Have moved into a new age group in October, now 75! I do plan on attending Molly’s first WTRS race on the 7th. but only in the capacity of helping on the trail.  So I encourage all my old running mates to attend all the races and hopefully I can get a hug.  I know Molly will do a good job.... one hopes there will be a few cold ones at the finish line in Blue Jay.  So, I look forward to abusing the shit out of everyone I see on the trail.  I just hope the weather is nice and all the rocks have been removed for my time on the course.  Hope everyone has a magic festive season and all your expectations for the new year get for filled.
