October is the month when RCN holds two important and fun annual events that don’t actually involve any physical running.

RCN Annual Meeting: This event is open to all RCN members as well as non-RCN race directors. It will occur on Thursday, October 10th starting 6:30 pm at the Alaska Dog Mushers Hall located at 925 Farmer’s Loop Road. At the meeting, the membership will elect the new 2020 Board of Directors and set the “RCN Events Calendar” for 2020. Race directors should plan on attending or send a proxy to assure that your event is represented during the calendar session. While primarily a business event, the Annual Meeting has historically been a great opportunity to set the course for another year, and have a great time while doing it. Pizza and refreshments will be served, so don’t eat dinner before you come!

RCN Awards Social: The Awards Social is open to all RCN members, both individuals and families. The event will be held starting at 6:00 pm at the Fairbanks Pipeline Training Center, Building C, 3600 Cartwright Court. It is a potluck, so bring a dish: Last Names A-J Main Course, K-R Salads, S-Z, Desserts/Breads. The event is a great time to kibbutz with your running buddies, and to celebrate the conclusion of the Usibelli and Northern Trails Series and recognize award winners. There are also lots of door prizes, so don’t miss it!
