Eclipse Events updates

  1. Package registrations are closed. Any remaining t-shirts and patches will be available on a first-come-first-served basis at the Raffle/Sales Table at the walks.  The brochure and registration form on the website has been updated. Supplies for walks are limited – reserve your eclipse glasses, glowsticks, etc. by mailing in your registrations so that they are RECEIVED by August 8th.  Walk-ins after that date are welcome to walk (or swim), but are not guaranteed eclipse glasses, etc.
  2. The Meet and Greet on Friday, August 18th, has been moved to St. Mary’s Cathedral Parish Hall, 112 S. Cedar St. Grand Island, NE 68801.  The event is open ONLY to those pre-registered by August 8th (see above).
  3. Meet and Greet registrants have been asked how they want their first name to appear on the name tag and for an interesting fact or tidbit about themselves for a mixer at the Meet and Greet.  Prizes for the top 3 winners will be available!
  4. NEW WALK ADDED!  After the Meet and Greet ends at 7 p.m., we’ll be walking Historic Downtown Grand Island in 5k and 10k small groups.  Bring your books to be stamped. Information on Special Programs available has been included in the updated brochure.
  5. The Sunflower Sod Stompers have sanctioned 3 additional swim events during the 4-day weekend – and have scheduled them so that you can walk, then cool off by swimming. What a great way to multitask during a multi-event weekend!  The location of those events is the pool at the Candlewood Suites. All the information on the Sunflower Sod Stompers’ Eclipse Swim Events is contained in this  printable flyer.  Be sure to bring your own towel and to observe all motel guidelines; swimming is at your own risk.
  6. Getting confused with everything that you need to know? Don’t worry – we’ll have “Need to Know” sheets for each day. Here’s Friday’s “Need to Know” sheet.  Let us know if you have any questions.
