Team Dinners Every week during the season, generally Thursdays, all the runners on the team get together for a team dinner. Each dinner is hosted by a runner's parents (or group of parents) who volunteer. During the beginning of the season (parent meeting), a sign up sheet is made available for parents to volunteer to host a dinner.
Parents hosting the dinner provide the location (their home or a park), the food and everything else needed for the dinner. Dinners usually consist of pasta, rolls, salad, desserts, and drinks. Chocolate milk and macaroni and cheese are popular. The team comes to dinner right after practice.
