Just added on the CCS website front page, a note about the passing of Rick Milam. www.cifccs.org
If you happen to receive this e-mail, please accept my advance apologies. I tried to make sure that it only happened once.
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Rick Milam (pictured here to the left, holding an award, courtesy of sportsimagewire.com at the 2010 Stanford Track and Field Invitational) tonight, Aug. 23. He was on his way to overcoming cancer. But in a short time period, starting Sunday afternoon, he suffered two heart attacks. He died with his brother and two close friends at his side at the hospital.
Some of you may not have met him, but if you attended either the CCS cross-country championships, the CCS track and field meet or at a Los Gatos All-Comers meet, he was there with his booming voice announcing races. He was a very good clerk and a better man. I will miss him very much, especially next spring when track season goes off and he won't be there.
Here is a link to a tribute at the same meet, as found on Keith Conning's blog:
