Give better notice for Stockade-athon

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe Stockade-athon that was held on Nov. 12 was, by all accounts, well-received and an overwhelming success.However, I encountered confusion on the part of one individual charged with securing the course to ensure the safety of the participants. Upon attempting to leave my street at 8:25 a.m., I was told that Central Parkway, and indeed all roads that comprised the course, were to be closed at 8:30 a.m.This, despite the flyers distributed in advance of the event clearly stating progressive road closings, with Central Parkway scheduled to be closed at 8:55 a.m. I was allowed to pass and was on time for my Sunday morning job, but I shouldn’t have had, for the second successive year, to talk my way off of my street.I would suggest that the race organizers address this issue well in advance of next year’s Stockade-athon. Surely there have to be drivers other than me who would be grateful for clarification and better notice to all involved with the event.BOB CHASESchenectady More from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlineEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img
