The 3RD ANNUAL HALLOWEEN COSTUME RUN AND PARTY!

Here's the Scoop for the The 3RD ANNUAL HALLOWEEN COSTUME RUN AND PARTY!!! We will be meeting at 6:30 pm in front of the Common Market for our Thursday night run; please come in costume as prize eligibility is based on if you run in costume. After the run we will head over to the HALLOWEEN COSTUME AFTER PARTY hosted by The Philosopher's Stone (yes, the P-Stone, right down the street at the corner of Pecan and 7th!) There's parking both at the P-Stone and across the street; just be sure not to park in any spaces reserved for the couple of businesses that are still open at night.
Party Details: We will have our own private room /patio at the P-Stone from 7:30-10pm, complete with a bar, pool table, & juke box - with plenty of space to mingle and DANCE! There will be an open buffet featuring some of P-Stone's yummy appetizers, plus P-Stone is providing us $1.50 PBR's, a $2.00 domestic beer special and best of all, discounting all their draft beers on tap that night to $3.00! But don't worry, the party does not end at 10pm, just the free food and our exclusive area of the bar, as P-Stone will offer the discount beers and drafts until close! PRIZES!: Everyone will receive a ballot when arriving at the AFTER PARTY so you can vote on your favorite costume for Great Prizes! Categories are as follows:
1) Scariest 2) Most Original/Creative 3) Best Cross-dressed and TWO NEW CATEGORIES this year:
4) Least Recognizable (but with face showing/no mask) Because we don't want to limit people's creativity, instead of offering actual race time prizes (knowing that times can be affected by attire) this year we will be presenting another unique prize category:
5) Most Difficult (to run in) Costume
To cover party costs and prizes there is $5.00 charge for this event. Please bring $5.00 with you to the
start of the run where we will be
ISSUING WRISTBANDS BEFORE THE RUN in front of the Common Market beginning at 6:15pm. You will need a wristband to enter the private party at the P-Stone, plus your ID if you plan to consume alcoholic beverages. (P-Stone will provide complimentary water.) RUN START: We'll be meeting @6:30pm for the run in front of the Common Market on the corner of Commonwealth Ave. and Thomas Ave. (Plaza area of Charlotte - see map link above). PARKING: is available behind the Common Market, on Thomas Street, and also in the parking lot on the corner of Central and Thomas Street. There are also spots available beside the Common Market; just be sure not to park in spots designated for the hair salon. COURSE: This is a well marked, lighted 4 mile loop run through the Plaza/Midwood neighborhood. For runners that want to run longer, just do the loop twice! Maps are provided and we always have a "professional sweeper," so NO RUNNER GETS LEFT BEHIND (If you want an advance copy of the map, click on "Files" on left sidebar menu or here:
http://files.meetup.c...) AFTER-RUN FESTIVITIES: HALLOWEEN COSTUME AFTER PARTY @ THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE! (See details above.)
If you can't make the run (or know you will be running late) I will be in front of the Common Market during the run ("tapering" before my marathon on Sunday) to issue wristbands to latecomers. I will also be at the P-Stone after 7:30pm, just ask for me there to obtain a wristband if you cannot make the event before then. See you there - or be scared!

    I need another volunteer to help collect monies and put on wristbands, just reply here so everyone can see who is doing this with me and so who to go to at the start to pay the $5.00 to....

    October 28, 2010

  • Bevin

    Be sure to bring your $5 to the START of run, there's another reason besides just getting your wristband...a very important reason, you'll see!

    October 27, 2010

  • Bevin

    and you're handling that, right Peter? : )

    October 27, 2010

    Bevin, forget about the wide angle lens. With 89 people registered to show up, you're going to need the AutoStitch Panorama App for the iPHone... :-)

  • Joshua J.

    Perhaps you should consider photography tips from the CMMR Facebook Photoshoot crew. ;)

    October 26, 2010

  • Bevin

    Uh, gonna to need a bigger wide angle lens.

    October 26, 2010

  • David

    88 PEOPLE!? May as well shut some of the streets down! lol

    October 26, 2010

  • Bevin

    We will be doing a GROUP PHOTO before the start of the run so come few minutes early to get your wristband, they will be available starting at 6:15pm...

    October 26, 2010

  • Bevin

    We need a pretty accurate headcount by next Tuesday so that we can order and have enough food for the buffet, so please RSVP by October 26th if you can, that'd be a BIG HELP!

    October 22, 2010
