2008 REF Runs 5K/10K Turkey Trots Volunteers,

Thank you for all your efforts in making race day a success! 242
runners/walkers paid to run one of the two races with 225 toeing the
line -- not bad for a week with news headlines that read "...
Carnation is an island with severe to moderate flooding.(!).. " Soft
numbers indicate a net profit of $5,000 + was raised for healthy
youth grants in our schools.

Participant and spectator feedback has been super - runners have been
very complimentary about how well-manned the courses were and the
friendliness of the registration and finish crews. Truly, you all
made this event possible - set up crew, volunteer coordinator, course
marshals, SVARC, pace bikers, sweep bikers, water station workers,
registration volunteers, post race food coordinators, timers, finish
chute workers, photographers, expo helpers, Jake mascot ( Alex, you
were born for this role!), demonstration teams and an industrious
clean-up crew . The start "gun" just wouldn't go off without you!

So kudos to all of you and we hope to see you in volunteer gear at
the Duvall Days 5K/10K on June 6, 2009!

With great appreciation,

Your REF Runs 5K/10K Turkey Trot & Expo Committee

Paige Denison, Race Director Dean Vergillo, Course
Director Steve Denison & Robyn Vergillo Kim Lisk,

My thanks also, Jerry NA7Z
