Members news from the Club Fat Ass Steering Committee

Member Directory Now Available

Thank you, thank you for all of the great suggestions on how to make our "online clubhouse" a better place for Club Fat Ass members and friends.

When we meet at Club events or on the street, all of us on the Club Steering Committee take mental notes of ideas for improving the Club website and otherwise making it a great place to share and hang out.  Keep those ideas coming!  We discuss each and every suggestion you make and hope to implement them all.

Event GPS Data Wanted

One of the exciting goals for CFA this year is to have most if not all of our event courses available on detailed maps.  To do this, I am looking for GPS data from our events.  

I have PDF and JPG files for a majority of our events, but we'd like to take this a step further and need your GPS files (i.e. .gpx files) from past CFA events.  

Buy a Classic Club Fat Ass Shirt and Get a Box of PowerBar Product

Every year at this time, we collect little chits of paper, dig out the calculator, the pencil and the eraser and complete our tax forms.  The math had better work.

Every once and a while the moon and stars align and Club Fat Ass gets the opportunity to share something special with members and friends.  The math does not have to work.

Here is an example:

5 Peaks/CFA Trail Running Race Orientation Run Leader Opportunity

On April, 17, 5 Peaks and Club Fat Ass will continue their tradition to offer 5 Peaks course orientation runs for the 5 Peaks Golden Ears race held later in April.  I'm writing to ask if you are interested in being a run leader for this and future 5 Peaks/CFA course orientation runs.  The perks, for each orientation run led, include a free entry to both a) one 5 Peaks race of your choice and b) one Club Fat Ass event of your choice (transferable to non-members) - what a deal! 

The 2010 Sunshine Yellow Collectors Shirts Are In!

Yippeh!  I picked up your club shirts from the screen printer yesterday late afternoon.  Happy to say that none got burnt, messed up in the sewing process and even the sizes look perfect.  

I am madly packing right now and will mail/get to the North Vancouver Kintec Store early in the week. 

If you cannot wait, please join us for the Capilano Night Run tonight. I will have the shirts available at the party afterwards (Sorry, I won't be able to bring them to the start).

The Shirts Are (Almost) Ready


World Premier - XS-NRG (The Film)

 The Sunshine Coast Trail is a relatively undiscovered gem of a trail that stretches 180 kilometers from Sarah Point in the north to Saltery Bay in the south on the upper Sunshine Coast near Powell River, British Columbia.

To bring awareness to the Sunshine Coast Trail and its natural beauty, the Marathon Shuffle has been held on a 29K section of the trail each spring.

A few years ago, four city boys from Vancouver threatened to run the entire 180K trail non-stop.  Locals said it couldn't be done.  The attempt was filmed. 

The world premier of the film has now been scheduled for release in Powell River on the Marathon Shuffle weekend in April.  A week later, on 1 May, the film will premier in the HR MacMillan Auditorium in Vancouver.

Find out what happened on the trail in this never before seen footage by film maker Angus McLellan and run the trail the following morning to discover the trail firsthand.  More details and ticket information is here
