Alternate Location for Thursday, April 1

For Thursday, April 1st's, run, we will be meeting in the parking lot between the Music Club/Sunken Garden entrance and Augie's BBQ on the West Side of Brackenridge Park, along St. Mary's Street, for the 6:30 run (since the crazies will be camping in the park). This is not an April Fool's joke.

It will be professionally cropped and the exposure corrected plus won't have my watermark and will look great!
