Fourth annual
TUSKEGEE TROT
May 2010
 
 The Tuskegee Trot was greeted with great weather. A scheduling glich took the trot off the field onto the courtyard when soccer games needed the space but being adaptable (like Ghanaians at Tuskegee) proved to be a most rewarding experience. The courtyard’s intimate setting proved to be the perfect place to trot (estimated times around the area is 14 which equals one mile). Kids were able to take a respite from their trotting by playing on the equipment and parents had a perfect view of their children as they had a chance to connect with each other.
 
 
The trotters moved around the courtyard to the drumming sounds of a group called Sheboom. Headed by Aimee Bass (Parker parent to 7th grader Del Sato), the group not only shared their African Drumming techniques but encouraged all trotters to try their hand at drumming. 
 
.
This year’s trot was also supported by a card company called Eclectik (www.eclectik.com). Owned by two sisters, they create greeting cards with the Chicago Skyline. They agreed to give 10 % of purchases for that day to Tuskegee
