Summer Short Series 2006

Peggy Dickison

If you haven’t already started thinking about training events this summer, now’s the time to do so.

Once again, Quantico O’ Club will hold the Summer Short Series: short, fun training events held on Saturday nights, where the emphasis is on short and social. After our training, many of us typically go out to eat together. The cost is low ($5/event, usually; all proceeds go to the US Team and donations above the $5 are welcome), the feeling is low-key, and the training is great. How else will you get motivated to train in DC’s notorious hot humid spider-webby summers? Come out and join us. Events usually begin around 6 p.m. Details of each event will be sent out as soon as they are known.

If you are willing to be a host of a summer short series (i.e., course setter-meet director), contact me (Peggy Dickison, QOC Training Director/Summer Short Series Mistress: pdickison@...) and let me know where and when you’d like to host. Hosting is NOT difficult. Most events have between 5 and 20 participants and we’re all very relaxed about the whole thing. Real controls are not required. If you have questions about hosting, let me know.


For planning purposes, here is a calendar of local/regional/national events so you don’t sign up to host when you’re planning to be away, and dates available for hosting.
