Thank you to everyone who came to the 6th Annual Perche Creek gut Buster yesterday. We missed those who were unable to make it due to the change in date (weather is so unpredictable) but thanks to all you new attendees! A very very special thanks to Nancy & Tony Taube. We simply could not do this race without you two! A little rain made it a real "Gut-Buster." We appreciate you all!!
