Figgy Pudding 5k - Volunteer Info

Thanks to everyone who said they'll be able to help out on Saturday. The race is anticipated to reach 450-500 participants, which is a fair number of people for a low-key 5k in Fells Point.

The race starts at 9:00am, according to Ben "at the square" - the end of Broadway at Thames. As discussed in the comments, it's more of a rectangle.

We shouldn't have a lot of pre-race stuff to do, just set up the finish line and get the timer going, but if you could show up between 8:30 and 8:45 that would be great. I'll have my cell on me so hit me up if you're confused or whatever (732-500-LIFE).

We'll be just working the finish line, so we'll have a few people directing people through the chute, pulling tags, putting them on spools, etc.

Should be done and have you out of there around 10-10:15.

By the square I mean the end of Broadway at Thames.

maybs a rhombus.

Nah- rhombuses (rhombi?) are equilateral. I wonder if they teach that in Baltimore City school high school geometry?

Ben said...

"the square" is what the fell's point main street association called it. kendra and i went on a fells point ghost tour once - they said that a bunch of children were buried under there during some disease outbreak in the 1800's.

Ben-
Did you attend their funeral?

RM said...

Oh my God, Brennan's zing was perhaps the funniest thing I've ever read in my life.

So classy and witty, yet tasteful and relevant. Great job Brennan.

alyssa said...

tasteful and relevant? what is TWSS coming to??

BEN IS OLD hahaha.

Jen said...

Stop making fun of his age, Ben is a spring chicken, because he killed the children in order to steal their youth.

And yes, I do in fact teach my students that RHOMBI are equilateral. They learned just yesterday that the area of a rhombus can be found by taking half the value of the diagonals multiplied by each other!

I prefer: area = s^2*sin(a) where s is the length of any side
a is any interior angle...
jk, it's all about base times height

i guess this is what i should have read before i showed up huh?

RM said...

Ha! Kip honestly with how ragtag we ran the show this morning I don't think it would have mattered if anyone even read this at all.
