    Thanks for the feedback everyone! We already have a plan for seperating the fees as suggested (mostly for t-shirts) I want the party to be free for anyone that wants to attend. We hava a prize drawing and most of the time your entry fee ends up being covered by the prize you win.
    Thanks to everyone that attended!

    I was a volunteer on the Marana portion of the Move Event on Saturday. Even with the weather conditions, everyone seemed to have a good time. The volunteers took many pictures of the hikers and they can be viewed on the following Picasa Link:

    A fun day! It was a well-run event, and the weather was better than I expected. We only had about 15 minutes of light rain. Congrats to Lynanne, her staff, and their counterparts in Marana!

    Hello, I signed up for the Mega Move... When it says "Upper Javalina & Wild Mustang trails" does anyone know what that exactly means? Does that mean UJ and WM to the top and then back down the same way? OR southeast over to Wild Burro or Alamo Springs to get back?

    Thanks! :)

    Hi Jody,
    Tom Ellis from Marana, chose an out and back this year as it is easier to have appropriate support. He and his staff are in charge of that portion of the hike. You are welcome to call Jen Ward with Marana P&R at[masked] for more detailed clairification.
