      Didn't make the lottery for this year, but have a pretty good chance for 2009. I am hoping to get in next year any attempt the Grand Slam. You guys have fun, I have a number of friends who will be there and will be watching the progress

              My sweet new crank!

                Grand Slam, good stuff. This year at Ice Age 50 I ran about 7 miles with a gentleman who allegedly was the first to finish the Grand Slam. Great stories from him. I wish I could recall his name....bearded nice guy i all I can think of now. But, he has done it several times now in the last many many years. Best of Luck to you.
