Train for the health of it ... Race for the fun of it!

Message From the President - June 2017

President’s Message – June 2017

April Showers Bring May Shower’s – ENOUGH ALREADY!! ! 

As you have noticed, Southwest Missouri has received more than its fair share of rain this spring.  Washed out low areas and roads are being repaired quickly and the water is receding.  Stones and roots can be covered or loosened.  As always, please be careful out there.  Safety First!

All deferred entrants for the Frisco Railroad Run should be receiving instructions by the third week in June as to the registration procedures for the 2018 race.  If you will not be able to make use of your deferred entry, Frisco does allow the entry to be transferred to another for the same distance. Though weathered out and a bit of a revenue challenge, donations were approved for our charity partners.  Ozark Greenway’s - $1000, Willard Cross Country - $1000, Girls on the Run - $500 and Campbell UMC- $250.  Congratulations for helping to support these wonderful folks.

Many additional OMRR events are scheduled for June.  All Questions answered.  This is free to OMRR members.  The first Poker run, benefiting the Polk County Humane Society was held with the next Poker Run June 15th at the Burrell Lake benefiting the Cox North BASE Class.  A new event has been scheduled and will be co-sponsored by OMRR. This is TRACK NIGHT.  Should be a hoot and begin a great annual experience.  Tickets can be reserved now.  Contact Dan Well’s for details.

Lastly!  This is the perfect way to end your Independence Week celebration.  Please bring school supplies for the Strafford School Foundation.  The kids really need them.

That’s all for now!  Enjoy this active OMRR month!
