Southern Route Coordinator News – FNG Special Part 1

Greetings to ALL Southern Route FNGs.

All Route Coordinators (RCs) produce and publish an Introduction Video on their hub of the www.rftw.us website.  If you have not already checked them out, you should.  There is literally a ton of other information on our website (I had it weighed).  All of our RFTW Merchandise is available there, along with the Forum, Announcements and RC Newsletters.

I think everyone has felt like the “New Kid” at some time in their life, First day of high school, college, new job maybe even boot camp.  Being a “Fun New Guy or Gal: (FNG) on Run For The Wall (RFTW) is not much different.  There is a lot that you may not know, and we don’t expect that you do.  I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every time I heard “Gee, I wish I knew that before my FNG year”.  We learn best from our experiences.  But Experience is a cruel teacher first the test, then the lesson.

The problem is that, due to time constraints, our FNG briefing in Ontario is never long enough to get to everyone’s questions.   

So, we are creating an opportunity to get a head start on the process.  Starting at 2:00PM PST, Saturday, February 27, 2021 we will host an FNG Town Hall on Zoom.  We are calling ALL Southern Route FNGs to join in.  You may just hear something, that your buddy forgot to tell you.  There will be more details to follow in subsequent newsletters. 

Here’s how you can help.  Email me bob.nelson@rftw.us  your questions in advance, so we can prioritize the most pressing questions first.   We will not mention your name, but we may say where you are from so include that information in your email.

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Positive
