Get ready for Peacock Lane!    (The best potluck in town)

Please remember to bring your donations for the Blanchet house. Items needed for men only ( Warm coats, gloves, scarfs, toiletries)

The scoop:
What: Christmas lights, of course! Portland's most famous street of lights is Peacock Lane - so we're running to it and through it.
When: Monday, December 16th @ 6:00 p.m.
Where: Foot Traffic, 4020 NE Fremont

This is about a 6 mile run or walk that includes a stop to enjoy the decorated houses of Peacock Lane followed by the most awesome potluck once we return to Foot Traffic. The weather can be unpredictable so please dress appropriately and remember that Peacock Lane will likely be crowded and a walk through (i.e. layers and headlamps are a good idea). All paces are welcome and encouraged. We'll likely split into several groups, so you can either find someone else running about the same pace, or memorize the route and be wildly popular with someone else who appears lost.

Here's the route: http://www.gmap-pedo....com/?r=4170318  although you can go whatever way you want - just make sure you see the lights and most importantly, get back in time for some food!

Post what you plan to bring to the potluck: (not required to participate)

For those who have not attended this run, it's a lot of fun and a GREAT potluck!

 

I'll bring some fruit and can stay for cleanup.

P.S.- Amy, I can sweep the run to make sure no one gets left behind or lost.


If I had some ham I could make ham and eggs if I had some eggs.

I will bring beer and chips and seven layer dip. That should cover the most critical food groups.
