We had such a fun time at last week’s Legacy Run we are doing it all over again for another week! We go back to where to it all started with a Legacy Run at O’Doherty’s Irish Grille. There was only one keg of the new Flying Irish brew… Flying Irish Snow Stomper by Iron Goat Brewing Co. and we went through it in 30 minutes. This week there will be two kegs of it so no need to worry about that!!. 

We announced last week what the end of year prize is going to be. Well, there is actually two of them. One from Red Lion and one from us. Red Lion will be throwing in hotel stay vouchers good for any of their hotels while we will be throwing in $400 worth of Southwest Airlines tickets. Plus a whole lot of other prizes! December 4th is the date for the party! But hurry up and get those Flying Irish Grant Applications in! The applications are due this Thursday! Read further down below to get further details.

Also, the 50-run sweatshirts are in so if you were waiting for one this is your week (most likely) to pick one up. We will be doing orders of the singlets (just a few left) and the tech hats in the spring.
