  • Medill's musings: Red-Nosed Run creeping closer

    • email print
  • Another batch of muses for everyone...
     
    I want to thank all of the folks and businesses that have supported our efforts as we continue to grow and improve our programs.
    I am overwhelmed by the efforts of so many individuals to make both our adult and youth programs better. It goes unsaid that our programs are only as good as the people involved, and we have many great people involved in each of our programs.
    Believe me when I say that we are going to continue working hard to improve each and every program.
     
    It is coming. The High Noon Saloon Fourth Annual Rudolph’s Red-Nosed Run and it’s 7.2 tough miles are just around the corner.
    RD Johnson has agreed to shoot the gun at High Noon on Dec. 1 to start the race. I am considering signing up for the race because every participant gets to enjoy a spaghetti buffet after they finish at the High Noon Saloon Restaurant.
    I am sure that I am capable of straining a leg muscle as I get into my starting position. Then I could return to the restaurant, while all the runners are out on their run, to mend and enjoy my spaghetti feast as I heal.
    The deadline for the early registration is Nov. 28 so hurry and get signed up.
     
    The Applebee’s adult coed kickball league is down to just two more evenings.
    The Seichepine crew, Sacks and Racks, continues to lead by one game over the Ball Busters. This is truly a Rush Battle Royale — I have not figured out how many children, grandchildren and whatever other relatives are on these two teams from Milton and Patty Rush’s family.
     
    In women’s volleyball, the Drillers are on a roll. They lead the league by two games after five weeks. Come check out some good volleyball at the Riverfront Community Center on Mondays beginning at 6 p.m.
     
    Our adult coed softball division I championship got rained out on Monday, which was a good thing.
    This gives me the opportunity to remind everyone of the clash between Criminal Justice (10-1) and Stepp Painting (9-2). If Stepp Painting wins the Wednesday night game, the two teams will play a one-game playoff right after it.
     
    The women’s winter volleyball league began registration Tuesday. We had five women’s teams in the fall.  Our goal is to grow to eight women’s teams for the winter. The league will play a ten-game schedule on Mondays beginning  Jan. 21, 2013.  So get your team signed up now.

    We have extended the registration for our adult men’s basketball league until Monday. There are rumors out there that a couple of teams from the past may be signing up. That will be exciting to see how those old bones are working now.
     
    Our plans are to begin 3-on-3 sand volleyball next summer.
    We will have two leagues — adult women’s and high school. In the women’s league, it will be for females 18-years-old whose high school class has graduated. Our high school league will be for females entering the ninth grade to those who have not graduated from high school. Our games will be played at David Brewer Park.
     
    We are also planning to begin a volleyball program for girls in grades 3-6 next Fall.
