Assault On Kelly Mine
Non-stop to the Top???
Sunday, June 1st, 8:30 AM

Linda Giesen & Gerry Strathman are hosting a run from their new home in Hop Canyon to Kelly Mine. This is about 7 miles round trip if you want to do the whole thing. The section from Hop Canyon Road to Kelly Mine is kind of steep. We will award token prizes for those who can make the ascent without walking. (Neither Linda or Gerry has yet managed this feat.)

We will host brunch after the run (coffee, bagels, fruit). We look forward to seeing you there!

DIRECTIONS - Highway 60 to Magdalena. Turn left (South) at Forest Service Office (Kelly Road). Go 2.0 miles. Turn right (West) on Hop Canyon Road. Go 1.5 miles. Turn right after "Children Playing &- 20 mph" signs. Follow road for 0.4 miles. (You will see a new home on the side of the mountain). Turn right up driveway to home. If lost call 854-2180.

Weekend Results

Las Cruces residents Terry Moore and Mike and Steven Montoya competed this weekend at the Keauhou Kona Half-Ironman triathlon. Terry took first in her age group with a time of 5:12:51. No word yet on whether Terry accepted a slot for the world championship in October. Mike and Steven finished together just ahead of Terry with a time of 5:11:39. Full results can be found at www.keauhoutriathlon.com.

Cathy and Matt Perini traveled to Sahuarita, Arizona, just south of Tucson for the Sahuarita Lake Triathlon, a 1000-meter swim/25K bike/5K race organized on by the same group that puts on the popular Tucson Triathlon series. Cathy grabbed second in her age group with a time of 1:41:13. Matt finished back in his age group with a time of 1:33:38. This race was a nice change, with a longer than normal swim and bike, and we recommend it for next year.


SSR Meeting June 3

The next regular meeting will be held at the Public Library at 6PM on June 3rd. We'll be discussing the next meeting of the Hash House Harriers, and reviewing Greg White's talk from the May meeting.
