Pan Mass Challenge 1984 - More from the Archives

Av sends along this fun article published in the Salem Evening News just prior to the Cyclopaths' first Pan Mass Challenge in 1984! (Click photo to read the article.) Av writes: "Our first PMC was September 12, 1984. We stayed at Camp Bourne, a boys' camp on this side of the canal. Then on to Provincetown. Sam hasn't changed a bit. Note his mysterious comment: 'We are taking care of my (financial) obligations in other ways'." --Av

Great article and photo! Thanks Av!! (P.S. Av also mentions he was 52 at the time, but we find that hard to believe. Av, you look like a kid!)

Just a note:

The Cyclopaths are going to be featured on Monday's PMC blog on Wordpress!

I am on Facebook, and there's a PMC FB group on there. They were looking for stories and old photos to feature on the blog's "30 years in 30 weeks" feature. I sent along the link to our website and the photo archive. Below is the response from Jackie at the pmc office:

yes, Stephanie is one of my Facebook friends! She told me that this Monday is when the Cyclopaths will be spotlighted.

They just featured Glynn Hawley for the 1984 year.

Correction, Rick Luppy was the 1984 spotlight. Sorry!
