The Boston Drummers MEETUP group is invited to join the amazing annual...
DRUMMING FOR THE MARATHON!
This is the 10th year we've been drumming at the start of Heartbreak Hill. Organized by your Meetup leader, John Tracy and drummers from DrumConnection. There are usually about fifty drummers or more.
Runners say it's the highlight of their run! Some even like us so much they stop a moment and play the drums.
Onlookers smile, police and military wave, TV cameras pass by, children dance.
Really special! Don't miss it!
Please RSVP so we know how to set up the space.
No drums? We will have a few extra, and people will share.
Please arrive by 10am to get through the Police Lines. Tell them you are with DrumConnection. Park close to where we are (see map). PLEASE bring a folding chair, drum, water, you will need sunscreen, of all things and a hat! The sun is usually very intense, unless it rains. Right now they are predicting 70 degrees and SUN! A blanket, money to buy from food vendors, your cell phone, John's cell number in case you are lost or stolen (just for emergencies) [masked] John Tracy.
We will take turns drumming and NOT drumming to create peace in our area of the community setting. John will lead you all in this fantastic event!
All I can say is BE THERE!
