Annual Club BBQ Meeting
Tuesday, August 29 | Deal Firehouse  | Brighton Avenue, Deal

This special Club meeting is not to be missed! 
The Deal FD cooks/grills hot dogs and burgers for JSRC! Of course there will be beer! 
Club members are encouraged to bring snacks and side dishes to add to the festivities.
Tina Duda will coordinate food needs and desserts. Contact Tina to let her know what you will be bringing.
This is a great event so be sure to put it on your calendars.

Note: We could use some early help setting up the tables and chairs and food beginning at 5:00 p.m. The Saturday in the Park crew is asking for help stuffing the race handout bags right before the dinner - the more hands will make this task simple and should take no more than 15 minutes! We will also be selling the JSRC Patriotic "These colors don't run" shirts, so if you want one, bring money! See you all then!!

    I have heard YES or NO from many of you, but still need to hear from all if you will be going on the shuttle from Red Bank.

    Please email me with your response on transportation as soon as possible. Volunteers get first pick on the shuttle but we have spectators that have been asking for seats and we need to reserve the correct size shuttle for our group.

    Thanks and keep on looking for volunteers.
