First, the BAD news:  The Highlands Golf Course was sold this year and the new owners are remodeling the banquet room. The banquet room was supposed to be completed in August. Unfortunately it is still under construction and the owners have regretfully canceled our potluck.
Now, the GOOD news:  We were able to book a banquet room for the potluck at the TOWER LANES ENTERTAINMENT CENTER!  Tower Lanes is located at 6323 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406.  It is a large facility with bowling lanes, an indoor miniature golf course, restaurant and lounge.  The banquet room is in the front of the building so it is separated from the noise of the bowling alley. There is lots of parking on the premises.
Join us for our annual awesome potluck immediately following the Tortoise & Hare 5k.


Just a reminder that the SUMMER’S END 5K will be held in a different location this year.  It will start and finish at the beautiful new Covington Community Center.  Be sure to check out the new course! 


It’s almost time for the Tortoise and Hare 5k?  Have you signed up yet?  Because it’s a handicap race, the field will be limited to 50 people. So don’t delay….sign up today!   



ATTENTION:  The Tortoise and Hare 5k will start and finish at a new location in Point Ruston.  We will meet by the Pavillion in Dune Peninsula Park, 5361 Yacht Club Road.  There is FREE parking   The course will be an out an back along the waterfront.  Click on the ad (www.silverstrider.com) for details.
