Mountain Bikers from all over the region are gearing up to converge on the small town of Rockerville this weekend for the 7th annual Black Hills Fat Tire Festival. Event coordinators spent Friday marking trails and getting the final preparations done for a weekend full of cross country and downhill races. In years past, the festival has been held at Rapid City’s Hansen-Larson Memorial Park.
Planners say they made the move to the Rockerville area, after rain shut down several events on M-Hill last year.
Festival coordinator Kelly Combs says, “It’s a little more centralized to our race events and we can run them if we get rain too. So, that’s really a good positive thing. When you get people that are coming in from out of town and we have to cancel something, that’s always a bummer if we can’t run an event for everyone. Really, it’s pretty good to go in terms of soil conditions.”
The Fat Tire event kicks off Friday night with a welcome social and registration at Rockerville’s Gas Light restaurant. Races are slated for Saturday and Sunday.

AYER — With a record-breaking number of registered 5K race participants, the ninth annual Janis Bresnahan Run for Education had another successful, fun year.
Janis Bresnahan’s brothers, Kevin and Ben Bresnahan, served as event coordinators, managing the day’s activities in their sister’s memory in a way that would honor her love of life.
Growing up in Ayer as an avid outdoor enthusiast whose hobbies included running, cycling and boating, Janis served as co-captain of the Ayer High School women’s track team in her senior year.
Following school, Janis went on to dedicate her life and work to the education of children, teaching preschoolers at “Kiddie Depot” and later transitioning into teaching computer education as an enrichment program at several local elementary schools.
Her passion for teaching made it an easy choice to remember Janis each year by raising money for the Ayer-Shirley Education Foundation.
Under warm temperatures, this year’s Bresnahan family event raised more than $32,000 to benefit the Ayer-Shirley Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization supported by charitable donations from individuals and businesses.
The mission of the foundation is to provide enrichment programs and professional training aimed at improving the quality of education for students in the Ayer-Shirley Regional Schools.
There were 543 runners and walkers of all ages, with 299 participating in the 5K, 162 in the 2K, and 82 youngsters
in the various Tot Trots.
In addition, approximately 50 volunteers helped on the day of the event, putting the total attendance at just over 600 people. Bresnahan family members joined in the occasion from as far away as Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New York and Connecticut.
The event is held each year at Ayer-Shirley High School, with the start and finish line set up on the track surrounding the football field. This year, activities tents set up with face-painting, a Legos table, a tattoo booth and sand designs, were filled with children who ran from table to table, wanting to take part in all that was offered. Live music performed by “The Nays,” a local classic rock band, entertained spectators.
Maureen Kilcommins, president of the Ayer-Shirley Education Foundation said, “We would like to thank the Bresnahan Family and friends for putting on another great Janis Bresnahan Run for Education. The money raised will allow the Ayer-Shirley Education Foundation to continue to provide educational enrichment opportunities otherwise not available to the students in Ayer and Shirley.
“The education foundation funds grants submitted by teachers in the Ayer and Shirley schools to provide such things as science and technology equipment, electronics, art programs, lectures and much more,” she said. “We are thankful to be a part of such a great community event.”
The Bresnahan family expressed great appreciation for the support shown by the community. According to Dana Bresnahan, who runs the registration activities on race day, “Sunday was a record turnout in all events for the Janis Bresnahan Run. It was a great day and a wonderful tribute to Janis, who loved children so much.
“Our cousin Betsy (Bresnahan) Dolan does an incredible job organizing the Tot Trot for kids ages 1 to 6,” she said, “and lots of fun activities for the kids. It’s great to see so many smiling faces. We added a 2K fun run/walk so that family members of all ages would have a fun event to participate in. I think it was our best event yet!”
This year’s 5K Race winners were Tim Gavin, (Male, age 37), of Weston, who finished with a time of 17:22; and Kara Haas, (Female – age 42), of Chelmsford, with a finish time of 18:39. This wasn’t Kara’s first win in the Janis Bresnahan 5K Race. The daughter of former Ayer Middle School teacher and principal, Richard Molloy, she was the overall winner of the 5K race in 2006 and has placed first for the women’s category a number of times.
Janis Bresnahan’s love for children carries on through the annual Janis Bresnahan Run for Education. Organizing an annual run in her memory is intended to bring her friends, family and the community together in a positive way and raise money for a good cause.

PHOENIX are the toast of the town after winning the Premier Division of the Hackney and Leyton League at the first time of asking.
Goals from Mariusz Serwin and Tyrone Husbands saw the triumphant side race into a 2-0 lead at Hackney Marshes on Sunday.
Rivals Black Meteors battled back to level the scores, but Phoenix rose from the ashes to secure a 3-2 victory thanks to rasping effort from man-of-the-match James Osbourne.
Dave Harber and Anthony Clark, who run the team, agreed it was no fluke they won the title with two games to spare. Dave said: “This is the biggest trophy the club has won.
I want to thank Anthony for bringing in some superb players, and everyone who has helped bring success to Phoenix. Club secretary Karen Marshall also deserves a big shout-out for what she does for the club.”
Anthony added: “We’re blessed to have so many quality players at our disposal. This success proves Phoenix is one of the strongest clubs in London, and that’s without a doubt.”
After concerns arose last week about noise and crowding, a leadership development conference planned for early June in Oak Bluffs will change venues.
“To accommodate a much larger-than-expected group, we will relocate the conference to the Featherstone Center for the Arts,” Sean Findlen, a spokesman for The Partnership Inc., wrote in an email to the Gazette. A career mentoring firm dedicated to professional support in management and at executive levels for people of color, The Partnership is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. American Express chief executive officer Ken Chenault is the keynote speaker. Organizers had planned to hold the leadership conference at the Island Inn in Oak Bluffs. Between 300 and 400 people are expected to attend, a large increase over the last time The Partnership hosted its conference on the Island, 10 years ago.
Ann Smith, executive director of Featherstone, volunteered the use of the arts center’s Barnes Road campus following a lengthy debate before the Oak Bluffs selectmen late last week when the Harthaven Association objected to the planned use of a tent at the weekend conference. Ms. Smith had attended the meeting to request an annual entertainment license for Featherstone’s summer flea market and Musical Mondays series.
“We are happy to have them, we have the space available,” she told the Gazette. She stressed that she did not intend to take anything away from the Island Inn, and that it was rare for Featherstone to host such large private gatherings.
Organizers for The Partnership had first asked to put up a tent at the Island Inn during the weekend of June 7 to 9. Carol Fulp, president and chief executive officer of The Partnership, attended the selectmen’s meeting last Thursday to answer questions about the proposal.
Ms. Fulp, who has been an Island resident for 14 years, stressed that the event coordinators wanted to be sensitive to the neighboring homeowners.
“We want to make sure that we have an event that is totally respectful of the community,” she said.
Last year, amid strenuous objections from Harthaven residents, selectmen denied a request from the Harlem Fine Arts show to use tents on the property of Hooked restaurant, on the grounds that it was a zoning violation.
The Partnership’s leadership conference was planned for the Island Inn, adjacent to Hooked but on a different property. There was some confusion over why The Partnership’s proposed tent was different.
Board chairman Walter Vail and town administrator Robert Whritenour said town building inspector James Dunn had previously determined that a tent at the inn, which already hosts conferences, would not be an expansion of a nonconforming use. Mr. Whritenour said the determination was not a final say.
The tent item was on the agenda to offer residents a chance to voice their opinion on the matter, Mr. Vail said. A number of residents, many from neighboring Harthaven, spoke.
“It’s a commercial operation overextending its footprint in a residential location,” Harthaven Community Association president Alfred Woollacutt said.
“They have a meeting room that is capable of holding 200 people; I don’t know why they need a tent,” he also said, citing concerns about traffic overflow in the Island Inn and Hooked parking lot. Mrs. Fulp said most people attending the conference would arrive via public transit or taxi, and that she did not expect a large influx of private vehicles.
Island Inn proprietor Derek Tipton said the inn has hosted The Partnership five times in the past, including their 10-year anniversary event.
Selectman Gail Barmakian said she was concerned about the conference serving beer and wine during meals without a permit. The fee to attend the conference, which includes meals, could be interpreted as charging admissions, which would require a one or two-day liquor license, she said.
The board asked Ms. Fulp and her fellow organizers to apply for a one-day liquor license. Early this week the Partnership announced it would move the conference to Featherstone.

Ben Hindman, former director of events for Thrillist, found that his day-to-day, repetitive event management work – like invitations, guest list management, and post-event recaps – was difficult enough without having to create a dedicated, online presence for his events.
To adapt a solution to his need, Hindman and Brett Boskoff cofounded Splash, a New York City-based online event management service that empowers users to create memorable event experiences.
Traditionally, creating a compelling event managment website requires a working knowledge of webpage development. Splash provides all the necessary tools, like designs, plans, and social media integration, for anybody to create a custom event site and manage every aspect of their event from start to finish.
“We are event planners creating tools for other event planners,” explains Hindman.
Hindman and Boskoff refused to let Splash grow stagnant and remain only an event page creation and management tool, though. Fresh off of beta testing, the team has introduced a new tool for event planners in the form of the Splash Live Feed.
Every Splash page created has this new, fully integrated tool that allows event planners to search for user-generated content during their actual event. Event planners can then take these images and add them to the gallery on their Splash page, which in turn activates the Splash Live Feed.
Any image from Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram can be added by searching hashtags, keywords, or usernames. And since Splash has detailed data collection for event goers, the owner of a specific Splash event page can email all attendees dedicated links to the photo gallery.
However, the main function of the Splash Live Stream seems to be the optimization of live content for projectors. As such, the live content generated during an event not only gets uploaded into the gallery on the Splash page, but it can be streamed on TVs and projector screens as well.
“Who doesn’t like seeing their picture or tweet showcased at an event?” asks Hindman. “In our beta testing, we found that events utilizing the Splash Live Feed saw close to a 300 percent increase in social reach.”
Hindman and Boskoff took the Splash Live Feed for a test drive and were able to power the L’Oreal Social Media Gallery at Sundance, the Dove Dad Care Social Stream, the Amstel Light Break Down the Burger event, the Espolon Tequila Social Scavenger Hunt, and the Lover.ly launch party. They also projected a Splash Live Feed onto seven jumbotrons at Sweetlife: a music + food festival. The team put together a video from Sweetlife to showcase the capability of the Splash Live Feed.
“The trend is shifting back towards big, live event experiences,” says Hindman. “We believe the live experience is the most powerful way to connect to others, and Splash is a wonderful medium to build online communities through live events.”
Splash was featured at Tech Cocktail’s New York Mixer Startup Showcase on May 2nd.

A Gants Hill nightclub, synonymous with footballers and reality TV stars, has marked its twentieth anniversary by opening a new bar and asking customers to share their memories.
Faces in Cranbrook Road, was first opened in 1993 by owners Tony Bee and John Clark, and has since become one of the most popular clubs in the area.
The hard-working pair first met more than 30 years ago when they were just starting out in the industry and working at the Epping Forest County Club.
It was from there that they decided they had earned their “spurs” and were ready to set up on their own.
Originally from East Ham, Mr Clark, who now lives in Hornchurch, said: “I had created the success for other people and I thought, why can’t I do this for myself and reap the benefits?”
The club, which hosted a special anniversary party on Saturday, is proud to be one of the few clubs to have maintained the same management team for such a long time.
As well as opening their new Masquerade Bar, the club also asked people to post photos and memories they had of the nightspot on Facebook to try and create an online archive which dated back to when the place first opened.
Both Mr Bee and Mr Clark believe the fact they “don’t court the press” and that the club is a “safe environment”, unlike some of the high-profile clubs in London, is the reason why so many famous faces regularly pass through the door.
The duo now have several venues including the nearby eighties-themed bar, Visage, but it is the success of Faces that gets them recognised all over the world.
Mr Bee added: “John and I were having dinner in Majorca when a couple asked if we were the owners of Faces. They said they’d met each other there and were now on their honeymoon.”
The club has also helped Gants Hill achieve a Purple Flag award for a diverse night-time economy.

Hunger Awareness Day 2013 in Linton on Saturday, June 8, will feature a 6K Run Walk, a golf tournament and an evening concert, all to benefit Linton’s Food Pantry. This the third year for the event organized and sponsored by the Linton First Christian Church.
Mark and Kim Downey, event coordinators, say they’re expanding the day’s activities this year hoping to help replenish the shelves in the local food pantry.
“Our church has been heavily involved in supporting the pantry,” said Mark Downey, “because there’s always been a need in Greene County. Everyone is encouraged to come out and enjoy the activities on Hunger Awareness Day and help out with monetary donations and contributions of food items.”
The day will begin with a 6K Run Walk starting at 8 a.m. at Humphreys Park. From the park, the route heads north on Park Road, takes a left on County Road 200N, then south on 4th St. past the pantry, left on E St. and back to the park. Members of the church’s youth group, Hwy 111, will man water stations along the route.
Runners and walkers who register by May 27 for $15 are guaranteed a free tee shirt. Others may register up to the time of the run for $20. Registration begins at 7 a.m. at the park.
Runners can compete for medals in six age divisions for both men and women: Under 20, 21-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and over 60.
A golf tournament kicks off at 1 p.m. at the Phil Harris Golf Course in a four-person scramble with a shotgun start. The cost is $35 per person — $11 of which will go to the food pantry and the rest paying for golfing fees. Food and drinks will be provided and golfers may win prizes and giveaways.
A free evening concert starts at 7 p.m. at the First Christian Church with opening artist Tambra McGill presenting contemporary Christian music.
The featured artist will be Andy Schroeder and his band One5Oh! Schroeder, a familiar musician in the area since he played for Youth Invasion for over 10 years, performs praise and worship music. Schroeder is the music minister at Crossroads Christian Church in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Organizers for the events include the Downeys, Youth Minister Chris Hardesty, Brad Feaster, Tambra McGill and Jason Vaughn.
Tim and Cindy Hale represent the church on the board of SON Ministries, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization composed of representatives of eight Linton churches that oversee the Linton Food Pantry. Tim sits on the board and Cindy serves as the board’s secretary.
The pantry regularly gets a supply of food from Catholic Charities in Terre Haute and the Midwest Food Bank in Indianapolis, but that’s not enough. They still have to purchase perishable items and they rely on the community to make monetary donations and contribute non-perishable foods and household items.
Cindy Hale said the number of people being served is rising.
“From 2011 to 2012 the pantry saw a major increase in the number of people coming through the doors,” said Hale. “We had a 19 percent increase. There’s also been an increase so far in 2013 over 2012 but it’s not so dramatic — about a 2.5 percent increase.
“People can come in once a month and the pantry is serving an average of 750 to 800 people per month. That includes 350-400 families. It goes up and down. Some months over 1,000 people are served.”
The requirements to take advantage of the pantry are not complicated. Living in the Linton zip code of 47441 is the main requirement and they don’t accept multiple people coming in from the same house. The rule is one person from each household. If someone says they have a need, no more questions are asked but the participant must show photo identification.
Contacts for Hunger Awareness Day 2013 include: For the Hunger Awareness Event, Mark Downey, 381-4025, email@example.com; for 6K Run/Walk, Tambra McGill, firstname.lastname@example.org and Brad Feaster, email@example.com; Golf Scramble, Jason Vaughn, 381-3832, firstname.lastname@example.org and Bart Beard, Phil Harris Golf Course, 847-4790.
Register for events by calling a contact person. Sign-up sheets are also available at Linton First Christian Church, office hours from 8-4 Mon-Thurs and 8-12 Friday. Checks should be made out to Linton First Christian Church.
All 6KRun/Walk and golf participants as well as concert-goers are encouraged to bring canned goods and non-perishable food items to the events.
