  • No time to fish - it's Warrior Dash time!

    Just a few days now until the much-anticipated Warrior Dash. Last I checked there were more than 5,800 signed up to participate. Couple that with a requested 2,000 workers, who knows how many "observers" and we're looking at a major crowd on Saturday, June 23.
    I'm thinkin' this could be the biggest crowd... outside Ham Days... we're likely to see here for a one-day event!
    Am I doin' the dash? Heck no, too many years, too many miles. Besides, I already did my dash years ago!

    It's been a few years since Weathers published his first book, The Dark Nemesis, but an expanded and updated edition of the book will be released later this month.
