    Hello ahudnall,

    I’m not the coordinator, but I’ll see you on Cannon. Our family is taking the tram up this year, probably arriving at the platform around 11:15. There is usually have a mix of hikers and “trammers” on Cannon. I will be bringing a poster with photos of past FOT48 events, so say hi when you get there.

    Looking forward to blue skies and a light wind!

    And thanks to all of you! I’m sure it’s not always easy. Special thanks to Chris this year for revamping the site. From a user prospective, it’s terrific.

    Happy trails and we’ll see you next year!

    A big thank you to Cathy and Mark for bringing the flag and a super rigging which stood strong against the wind.

    We had at least fifteen people who stayed at the summit for the two hours the flag was up – pretty impressive given the weather. All in all, it was a great remembrance on Cannon.

    Hope we see some of you on the trails in the coming year!

    Hi Cathy and friends,

    I also will be doing Cannon again this year. Looking forward to just enough wind to unfurl the flag – no broken flagpoles this year! Unless it snows, the weather can’t be as bad as last year.

    See you at the top.

    Despite the pea soup fog and the WIND, we had a great 9/11 remembrance today.

    It began at 10AM with a ceremony organized by the Combat Vets group in the tramway building.

    It continued at noon with our FOT48 group. Thanks to Cathy and her friends we had flags, we had the Star Spangled Banner, the pledge of allegiance, and some heartfelt remarks.

    Thank you all and I hope to see you again on the trails.

    Thanks, Tim, for the heads up. Us “trammers” will head up extra early. Nice that the group is doing their own Sept 11 memorial.

    Hello Cannon hikers!

    I will bringing up a poster of past FOT48 events that I have used for the last several years. I’ll be updating the pictures to include some of those great shots taken from the helicopter last year.

    Sorry to say, I won’t be hiking this year, but will be taking the tram. For anyone else who’s not able to hike, consider using the tram to participate. Cannon is a great peak!

    See you all at the top.

    Peace.

    Hello SilentCal and Team Cannon,

    My bad knees and I will be taking the tram this year. I will be bringing up a poster that I have used for the past several years, including last year on Pierce. It has pictures of flags raised on different summits for prior FOT48 events.

    Looking forward to a great 10 year anniversary remembrance!

    Hi all,
    I will be bringing a small poster with pictures of past years’ FOT48 and a short explanation of the event. It’s one I have used before and it seems to be well received.

    My husband and I are planning on leaving at 8:30 as we are slow hikers. So say “hi” when you pass us on the trail!

    David, it will be nice to see you Plymouth folks again.

    Our deepest sympathy goes out to you.

    I urge everyone to take a moment on Saturday between 12 and 2 to remember Silent Cal and his family. May you somehow find the strength to get through this terrible time.
