It was not an easy task, as they began the 2016 Liberty Tour Track & Field Series at a deficit, trailing by more than 100 points.  By the time they completed the President’s Open, the Country Mills Eagles managed to win their first meet, but still lagged in the scoring by almost 80 […]

Patriot’s Invitational 2015      It is a new decade for the Empire State Liberty Tour Track & Series, and that means there are several “NEW” and “EXCITING” things to set the pace for the next decade, which takes us to 2024. However, let’s NOT get too far ahead of ourselves, as I would like to […]

Liberty Tour Champs

          If I recall correctly, the beginning of each Superman episode began with, “Faster than a Speeding Bullet, More Powerful than a Locomotive, Able to Leap Tall Buildings in a single bound.”  After the results of Liberty Tour Track & Field Championships, I find myself a bit confused.  The Glencadia Bullets from the Adirondack Association were […]

East Region Championships: This was NO Holiday!

      What is the value of a Naysayer?  I can remember quite clearly a handful of people, almost a decade ago, that adamantly expressed their discontent over the very thought of contesting a Track & Field competition on a Holidayweekend.  In fact, even some in positions of “legendary importance” noted the gross inconvenience of hosting a meet at […]

At this time of the year, we most often take time to reflect upon the incredible bravery and courage of our Founding Fathers, and all of the fighting Patriots, both Minute Men and the Militia Men, that were willing to give up everything of a personal nature, including leaving their families, in the very noble effort of preparing […]

The Classic 400

      It was Memorial Day Weekend at Bethlehem High School on a beautiful warm sunny day, and the perfect backdrop to celebrate the Constitution.  More than 200 years old, one might wonder what this country will look like when it is 400 years old, nearly twice its current age. Will the USA be the […]
