2012 Bogle Phantom

The wait is over...Phantom has reappeared for the season! Bogle’s tantalizing apparition of rich berry and relentless spice returns to tease wine lovers.

2012 Domaine Grand Veneur, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge, "Les Origines"

"The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Origines (45% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre) is a polished, medium to full-bodied effort that has superb concentration, lots of tannin, and a ripe, textured feel. Showing plenty of black raspberry, toasted spice, creamy licorice and hints of violets, it's a classic example of this cuvée that will benefit from a year or two in the cellar, and have no problem evolving gracefully through 2027. - Jeb Dunnuck" - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (Issue 215, October 2014), 93 pts

$63 Btl // $50.40 on 6 // $44.10 on 12


2010 Vitanza Brunello di Montalcino Tradizione

"A chewy and rich wine with loads of chocolate from milk to dark chocolate. Full body and intense. Tannins. Needs loads of time to soften due to the acid, fruit and wood balance. Squared off tannins. Muscular. Try in 2017." - James Suckling (January 19th 2015), 93 pts

$53 Btl // $42.40 on 6 // $39.75 on 12

Andrew Ellicott: The Stargazer Who Defined America
by William J Morton

Andrew Ellicott: The Stargazer Who Defined America

This definitive book is about a 4 year expedition to measure and mark the first international boundary line between the United States and Spain. An integral part of the amazing story is Andrew Ellicott, the protagonist, whose perseverance to complete his assignment marked the beginning of the end of Spain’s presence in the new world.

This story, ignored by historians for two hundred years, is about measuring and marking the first southern boundary of the United States as provided for in a treaty with Spain. The new nation, exhausted after her breakaway war with Great Britain now faced another powerful adversary with Spain, whose ambition was to control the people and property in North America as she had done in South America.

After the Revolutionary War, Spain controlled more property on the North American Continent than any other nation which included the old British colonies of East and West Florida, the lower Mississippi River and New Orleans, the huge territory known as Louisiana on the west side of the Mississippi, all the rivers draining into the Gulf of Mexico, and most of what would be California, Arizona, Texas and New Mexico. Spain? How did Spain get so powerful? Here’s how. For more click the above link or why not buy the book?

Gene Gregorio turns up the light, drama, and mystery in his dynamic, compelling paintings.  Born in Washington, DC, and trained at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) Gregorio  spent 25 years as a master cabinetmaker and museum exhibit builder, but missed painting. After a trip to his parents’ home in Portugal, he decided to return to his love of painting, full time. “I am consumed with my art and at times must wait patiently until the sun rises so I can begin to paint!"

Join us to take a walk in the woods of the McKeldin Area of Patapsco State Park to search and document where this rapidly spreading "villain of the valley" invasive plant is located.   

Volunteers are welcome to a short workshop (15 minutes) to learn more about the Wavyleaf Mapping Project sponsored by Towson University's Department of Biological Sciences School of Emerging Technologies in partnership with Patapsco Valley State Park, Maryland DNR, Maryland Sierra Club and Patapsco Heritage Greenway.   

Once trained to record data, you will be sent out on your own to hike areas in the park on a quest to find and document this "villain of the valley" so the park can eradicate it!  

They need our help in mapping the distribution and spread of this invasive species. You can get involved by downloading their smartphone application and reporting locations of this distinctive and potentially destructive species.

For more information on this project and/or to download the application they are using on your iPhone or Android smartphone (currently only Android), or record points on your handheld GPS, go to:   http://heron.towson.edu/wavyleaf/home


Follow "Environmental Event" signs to the parking/registration area posted in the park.  


From I-695/I-70 West take I-70 to Marriottsville Rd. ( Exit 83). Go North on Marriottsville Rd. for 4 miles to the park entrance on the right.

Age Restrictions

You are welcome to bring your family and friends. Children under 16 are welcome if they are supervised and accompanied by an adult volunteer.

What to Wear

Boot Camp in the Park FAQ

It doesn’t matter how physically fit you are.  It doesn’t matter how old you are.  This program is about getting you, your family, your friends, your neighbors–everyone you care about—up and moving.  If you are ready to make the commitment to wellness and becoming more physically active, “Boot Camp in The Park” is for you!  We also encourage you to bring your children.  Beginning in 2014, we are coordinating with WeCan (Ways To Enhance Children’s Activitites and Nutrition) to encourage families to exercise together on Saturday mornings.  This program will be promoted to participating WeCan Howard County elementary schools as “We Can Move In The Park”.  For more information about WeCan, Click Here

This is a FREE community program

Every Saturday from 8am-9am beginning mid-march to late November (35 weeks) –   2015 Official Start Date:  Saturday, March 21, 2015

Consider a walk, jog or run around beautiful Centennial Lake following Boot Camp in The Park.  If you decide to walk, jog or run the lake before the workout, most walkers would complete the loop on time if they start by 7am.  Joggers and runners would likely complete the loop if they started by 7:15am.  Our location is Corporate Pavilion H which can be accessed by turning onto Woodland Road off of 108 and taking an immediate left turn into the park.  We will post signage near the gate and on our website if the location should change.  Once you enter the park, just follow the Get Active Howard County signs.

Time:              7:45am – Free registration opens (Register by 7:55am)
7:55am – Orientation & Meet the trainer(s)
7:55am – Warm-up
8:00am – Exercise begins (modified to meet the needs of all fitness levels)
9:00am – Cool down and stretch

Every exercise and activity can be modified for those that prefer a slower paced workout and to accommodate all fitness levels. Just as important, the trainers are always ready to kick it up for participants who are up for the challenge.

Location:           Centennial Park (108 South Entrance) –follow the Get Active Howard County signs once you enter the park.
We recommend that you confirm our location by clicking on the following link: http://wepromotehealth.org/updates.aspx

We recommend that you bring a towel and/or exercise mat, water bottle (recommended)

This program began in 2011.  The first training featured five professional trainers sharing expertise and enthusiasm in a station by station format.  Teams rotated through the stations learning new exercises, having fun and improving their fitness and form.    In 2011, participants of the free “Boot Camp in the Park” set the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Outdoor Circuit Training”.   The message is that anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, can make the commitment to increasing their physical activity!  Most of the participants never thought they could do this until they took the first step— They showed up!

Join the fun and start your Saturday off with us.

Please read and sign the Terms of Agreement and Official Release and bring a copy with you to the park
