**ANNOUNCEMENTS**
Message from Parry Grover
Linda and I are planning ahead for the runner's annual open house, potluck and movie
extravaganza at our home on January 1, 2015. Please save the day. Of course, we
need help in selecting a movie theme that is likely to interest the most attendees. Since
children are welcome on January 1, that limits certain movies. The movie themes
suggested so far are:



Any Tom Hanks movie (e.g., Captain Phillips, Forest Gump and many more)
Movies about "trips" (e.g., Around the World in 80 Days, The Motorcycle Diaries)
Movies about "music" or that include good music (e.g., 20 Feet from Stardom, Muscle
Shoals, The Commitments)
Can you think of other, possibly better movie themes? Past movie themes included:
any movie about runners, Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, and the
Fondas (Henry, Jane or Peter). I would like to select the potentially best three or four
themes, and then circulate that list for consensus votes to identify the most popular
theme. Please remember that this process may be corrupt. I am not immune to bribes
- especially carrot cake or French fries (i.e., if well financed interest groups can buy
elections, then why not buy me too?!). Thanks,

Weekend Group Runs
If you are organizing a weekend group run and welcome company just email us with
