July Happy Hour tomorrow night, Thursday July 27

Come join us for this month's happy hour at Ireland Four Courts (located near the Courthouse metro stop). We'll be kicking things off at 6:30 PM with some great food, above average company, and plentiful running conversation, so you don't want to miss it!  It's also a chance to get your club singlets, club shirts and participate in the raffle for 4 Nats tickets to the Sep 8 game against the Phillies. These come with parking at the stadium lot and are located in the Diamond Club seating area so all you can eat and drink to boot! The club provides the food and their will be plenty of "cold" beer pouring from those Four Courts taps.  Four Courts can more exactly be found at 2051 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA  22201.  We look forward to seeing you there.  


Next Race:-Steve Thompson 8K

Come out and enjoy a loop around Lake Accotink on the aptly named Lake Accotink 

It's also sixth race of the 2016 Bunion Derby Series.


Race Director: Ian Clements
