10am - begin trainings at Franklin Park

We should be wrapped up by 2pm, possibly a little earlier.

Sorry for thread hijack, but anything going on around Boston on Memorial Day weekend?
May 17, 2019 1:47 PM # 
Nothing planned - we have a park race on Wednesday, and there is a NEOC event in South Hadley over the weekend, but neither of those are in Boston or on the weekend.
