Mardi Gras Madness 
Mardi Gras Madness Logo  We've setup a Team at the Mardi Gras Madness 5k, so if your have signed up already or if your going to be signing up be sure to join team STORM, if you signed up and want to be added to team STORM, send me an email and I can go in and switch you to the team. 
I've also been asked: "What is the difference between the competitive and non-competitive 5k races". The difference is that we will be giving awards based on age groups to the top 3 athletes in every age group and gender for the competitive event, and there won't be any awards for the non-competitive event. Both will be timed, and results for both events will be posted
Urgent Text Alert System 
  If you would like to join our Urgent Alert Text System, on your cell phone text the word "STORMTF" to 41411 and you should be greeted with a welcome message, we use this system rarely for very important urgent alerts, for example, We cancel practice early due to unforeseen circumstances.
