6th Annual PANCAKE PALOOZA 2014
On Sunday, February 2nd, TEAM EARLEY held it's 6th Annual Pancake Palooza. Over 200 community members turned out to support this event at the Souhegan High School cafeteria in Amherst.  This year’s Palooza featured our annual People's Choice Maple Syrup Taste-Off as TEAM EARLEY partnered with several sugarhouses from the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association.  We had 7 local sugarhouses  submit entries for this year's Taste-off.  Our 2013 participants included:

 Belvin's Sugar Shack - Amherst NH Mt. Crumpit Farm - New Boston NH 
 Grant Family Sugarhouse - Weare, NH Sammy's Sugar Shack - Milford, NH
 Hatch's Sugar Shack - Milford, NH Morningstar Farm Sugarhouse - Plaistow, NH
 Kaison's Sugarhouse - Weare NH  

Special judge - Susan Lozier Robert (proprietor of Frederick's Pastries) and seven randomly-selected judges graded this year's syrup entries in a blind taste test. Samples from the sugarhouses were rated on a scale from 1-10 and judged on a maple grading system similar to the NHMPA's annual Carlisle Award.  Every judge had the opportunity to grade all of the entries using a weighted scale across; clarity, color, consistency and flavor with a major emphasis on flavor. The results of the 2014 Maple Syrup Taste-Off People Choice Award are as follows...

  Overall Winner Score
1st Place - Kaison's Sugarhouse

116th Boston Marathon 2012
On Monday, April 16th 2012, TEAM EARLEY's founding couple Gregory & Kathy Earley completed the world's oldest and most prestigious annual road racing event. With temperatures reaching the high 80s, the 116th Boston Marathon was not a race to run fast - but merely a race just to finish. Organizers said the highest temperature recorded Monday during the marathon was 89 degrees in Framingham at 12:30 PM. 

Nearly 22,500 runners braved unseasonably balmy conditions as some 4,300 participants registered to run opted to sit out. Organizers pleaded with runners to slow their pace to avoid heat stroke but by Monday evening, just under 2,000 participants had received some level of medical attention. 

This year's race marked a significant milestone for 5 year cancer survivor Kathy Earley. Kathy completed the 116th Boston Marathon in 5:18:20, a race she last ran as a high school senior and a race she has been supporting her "Running for Cover" Boston Marathon team from the sidelines every year through her recovery.

The Marathon Team of Melanoma Foundation of New England has been fundraising through the Boston Marathon® for over 7 years. With Bill Rodgers as honorary team captain, the Running for Cover team has raised more than $1,000,000 to support the life-saving work of MFNE. The Melanoma Foundation of New England had 37 runners participating in the 2012 Boston Marathon!
