Women's Triathalon here this weekend

You've probably seen all the women of all ages training around the Shores for the past few months. They will swim, bike and run their way to victory this Sunday. This is a much welcome event here in the shores. It is a great cause (raising money for the Breast Imaging at Sierra Memorial Hosp. so women who can't afford mammograms can get them). It brings athletes, volunteers, family and friend spectators here, to enjoy the beauty of our forest and the always impressive views at Scotts Flat Lake. The mood is always festive, and the crowd friendly and orderly. It is well organized and unobtrusive. I can't think of a better place in Nevada County to hold this event. A few weeks ago a local resident wrote an unpleasant editorial to The Union, which they published, complaining about his life being inconvenienced by the women's training here. For anyone reading this, I'd like to say that he is the one and only person I have ever in my 11 years here heard complain. The President of the CSHA, Harry Wander wrote a quick rebuttal letter to editor that was also published. Thank you Harry. And Gary, SUCK IT! Good luck ladies. I am in awe of you all!

  1. Someone actually complained about the ladies training for the race? Idiot!
