OK So I've taken the liberty of posting this on here from the other forums:

My contact info:
Here is the general outline, so far:
Beginning at Litchfield/Harwinton commuter lot, 10 Thomaston Rd, Litchfield, CT. Exit 42 off of Rte 8.
-A scenic, slightly spirited at times, tour through Litchfield, Harwinton, Morris, Washington, Warren, New Preston, Kent, Goshen, Cornwall, and Torrington.
-Raffle prizes (free)!!!
-Ending with a very nice banquet at Chatterlies @ Eastwood country club in Torrington. A portion of the proceeds will be going to charity for Blake Roy; our friends 4yr old son diagnosed with neuroblastoma. This is an easy, pay in cash as you enter, buffet kind of a thing. Expect about $23 a person, not including Alcoholic beverages (we will have our own bar).
Here is the menu:
-Mixed Green Salad w/ poached pears, crumbled stilton, candied walnuts, honey citrus vinaigrette and balsamic glaze
-Rolls & Butter
-Cider Braised Yankee Pot Roast
-Garlic Mashed Potatoes
-Green Beans and Butternut Squash
-Warm Apple Crisp
The run itself will run between 2.5-3.5 hours in endurance, with the typical stops at Mohawk Mountain and the gas station. (I will make sure that everyone there knows we will be there!!!)
