Running Stories from 1995 to the Present

ll of these stories were originally published in the monthy New York Flyers Newsletter (mailed out via Snail Mail in those days). The Hood to Coast account (which has contributions from each team member) was my very first effort at web-based reporting. It originally appeared on the New York Flyer's web site, as the first "Battle Story" (that section no longer exists, repaced by the Blog and on-line Newsletter) and in the October 1997 Newsletter pp. 5-6. The 1997 Hot Chocolate 10 Miler account, and the two Arches runs also appeared on the Flyer's web site "Battle Stories" as well as in the Newsletter.

These are some of the earliest web pages I put together, in the infancy of the NY Flyers. And the 1997 Hood to Coast Relay, soon after its publication on the NY Flyers web site and Newsletter, was the first post I made on my own web site.
