Eagle Run Goes Out in Style

Over 100 people celebrated the last Eagle Run on January 23.  Gary Knipling again welcomed us to Mason Neck where the weather was cold. Each participant received a fleece cap that commemorated "20 years running with baldy."  There were few eagles in Pohick Bay, the usual prime viewing location, but the Barnwharf Trail produced several close eagle sightings including the one at right. There was the usual pizza at Gunston Hall, and the party around the fire at the end.  A heartfelt thanks to Gary for 20 years of fun and memories! Photos by: Bobby Gill | Quatro | Anstr

Membership Roster Updated

We have updated the membership roster to list only those who have paid dues for 2011. There are now 461 members of the Virginia Happy Trails Running Club -- 300 renewing members and 161 new members. One hundred of the renewing members did so without payment of dues as volunteers. The membership process is off line. We hope to have a new process ready in March.

More Web Site Improvements - Member Lookup

Our current situation is that members have two passwords to forget. The general one that is the same for everyone gets you into the Members Only section of the site. Then those who have made an account here have their own (different) password. Our goal is to fix that by having everything on this new section and do away with the password that everyone forgets and is not very secure.


Step one is to migrate the members only look up form over here. We have done that.  We hope you will test it and let us know if you have a problem.  Be sure you are logged in and then go to the Member Lookup page. (If you really want to test it, try this link when you are not logged in. Hopefully, you will get an error.)
