“Momism” Posters

We add some on-course entertainment by putting posters filled with funny or inspirational “Momism” quotes all along the route.  You are invited to create a poster of your own, bring it to Packet Pick Up and we’ll put it on the course.  Please use standard size poster board.  You can take it home after as a memento!
