Fun Run & Volleyball

Fun Run

The 5k Fun Run is a long-standing tradition at the annual meeting. It will be held on Wednesday evening, before the banquet. This year's route takes you along the Ohio River through Louisville's beautiful Waterfront Park, a short 8-block walk from the Marriot. The start and finish are just across the street from the baseball stadium where the banquet will be held, so all your friends and colleagues can be on hand to cheer you on to victory! If you are interested in participating but do not wish to race, we are in need of several volunteers to assist with timing, water stations, and cleanup. Please contact Lara Panayotoff (lara.panayotoff@ky.gov) if you would like to volunteer.

Volleyball Tournament

The annual volleyball tournament will be held at Baxter Jack's, a sand volleyball facility and bar! Check out their photo-gallery (http://www.baxterjacks.com/). They have three courts that we can use from 4:00 to 6:00. Transportation will be provided to the Baxter Jack's, which is about a 5 minute ride from the Marriott. We'll set up the tournament and if you need to sit out a round or two, you'll have a good place to sit and selection of beverages.
