    Hey all, I figured I'd put the word out about a hillclimb race in the Wilkes Barre area this weekend...so if any of you are passing through on your way to/from bloomsburg, you might want to stop by.

    go to www.giantsdespair.com for more info.

    Race runs on saturday and sunday between 9-5,
    It's called the Giants Despair Hillclimb, and it's run in Wilkes Barre (laurel run)...it's one of the oldest organized races in america...My company is sponsoring it, and I am running all the technical stuff for the event...about 70 competitors, all running up the 1.25 mile hill, some hitting around 150 mph in parts...lots of crashes/slides/spins...if you've never seen one, you have to..
    just a diversion if anyone is passing through...directions...rt 81 to Wilkes Barre (PA rt 309), south 309 to Northampton Street (follow signs to laurel run.. can't miss it)

    It's just about an hour easy drive from Bloomsburg
