February Newsletter

Friday, February 9th, 2007

Hi All,

The PBP excitement has started with a great turn out for the annual meeting. Followed by 31 randonneurs showing up in subfreezing temps at the beginning of Feb. for a non-qualifying RUSA brevet. Of course everyone out there was really doing it for the fun of it and the R-12 challenge. Bill Beck became our fifth member to achieve R-12 when he arrived back at the “Center of the Universe” with the lead group. Congratulations Bill.

RAMM on Feb. 24 will be the last of the non-qualifying RUSA brevets until after the ACP qualifying series is complete. Liz will be preparing her great taco soup and we plan on having a bonfire if weather permits.

The entry form for the ACP qualifying series is complete. See Attachment. We have scheduled many brevets to try and accommodate the many different interests and goals of the individual randonneur. There are many options and opportunities to ride and/or volunteer at many events. Volunteers are needed to help at registration, check-in, intermediate controls,ect. Volunteering can be very rewarding and is another good way to meet your fellow randonneur.

I will be out of town on vacation for the next 2 weeks. I may be a little slow in responding to requests. If it can wait until I get home that would be great. If not remember I’m on vacation and be patient.

Hope to see you on the road soon.
