To all members who have volunteered to support the 9.11K on 10 September
and do not have access to Redstone Arsenal, please foward your contact
information to Marc at Harris3296@Bellsouth.net. I will work with the
event coordinator to ensure you will have access
without having to stand in line at the visitor center.
Current plan is that we will rally at the visitor center at gate 9 at 0615 and convoy to the Sparkman Center NLT 0630
Redstone Arsenal is hosting a 9.11K run. Since all of the soldiers have
left the installation due to BRAC they are short on road guards to
suppor this event.
As I spoke with the organizer she stated that
they would need about 30 road guards (15-20 cars in my estimation). I
thought we could post the cars at the various locations as motivation
for the runners. I created a database to determine what the interest
level would be among our group. I plan to get back with her early next
week to let them know what can support with.
The race route
begins at the Sparkman bldg. 5302, exit parking lot heading north on
Patton Road, turn left on Neal Road, take Neal Rd up to Marshall/Mills
and turn left, continue south across Martin, follow until Mills
continues left, stay straight until you reach Patton again, turn left
heading back North to Sparkman, turn left into complex back to
Once it is over, most likely NLT 0930, I thought we could do brunch at Chili's or a late breakfast at Cracker Barrel.
This would be a great opportunity to show our support to those who died for no apparent reason...other than being an American.
