Manistee - Reception and Lecture
 (mandatory for below rim hikers)
Sunday September 13, 2009
Distances from 5 to 27.6 miles
Saturday the team met in Cadillac on this sunny day.  Ron's reception room soon filled to capacity and the body heat raised the temperature.  He moved us, thankfully, out to a beautiful shaded park next to the hotel.  Here the Coach was at the top of his game with an informative and sometimes humorous lecture to prepare us for the next day challenge.  Then we all departed to our favorite restaurant to carbo load for the morning hike.
