COUNTRY MUSIC MARATHON....
If you're in Nashville Saturday, you'll have the opportunity to
hear 27 country music bands along the course of the Country Music
Marathon! Bring your toe-tappin' running shoes....and prepare for
warm weather. Over 39 penguin runners from the Brigade and Courage
to Start lists are running CMM.
Stop by the Team Penguin Booth #907 in the expo to see us please!
John, Karen, and Ma Bingham will all be there. On race day John
will be leading the 5 hour pace group and Karen will be on the course
supporting runners. John's the honorary race director of CMM, so
keep your eye on the local media for possible interviews too.

KENTUCKY DERBY MINI....
And then there's the Mini in Louisville. One of the first and premier
penguin encounter events. There'll be a gaggle (Bill K's terminology!)
of penguins there too for the race on Sunday, April 30. Join the
half marathon Derby fun! It's a guaranteed memorable weekend!
NEW HOME FOR PENGUIN BRIGADE....
The Penguin Brigade listserv moved on April 21 from it's home at
MTSU on the penguin-l server to the WaddleOn.com server. The move
seems to have gone fairly smoothly. Many thanks to Bob Busch and
Stan Maring for their years of labor as volunteer list administrators
of penguin-l . None of us realizes the extent of their behind the
scenes work to keep penguin-l running smoothly. Thank you both!
Andrea Hames and Dave Campbell continue as list volunteers who send
welcome greetings to new members and monitor the list content. Our
thanks to them also!
