From Adele (the main volunteer coordinator):
Wow, how can I describe the week-end events? Energy Charged Biking Excitement and fun too! Can it get any Better?
It all starts with our board members who have the insight and energy for all those months of brainstorming and planning for this event to come together. Wes Eubank, Julianne North, Art North, Kevan Sheridan, Ken Orlando, and Tim Gustafson. Thank you all.
And then, there are all those Volunteers who....are the backbone of this club! These are the folks who can't wait to help out and volunteer months before the event and are anxiously awaiting their duty assignments...smiling and having a good time, and doing this all to assure that everyone has a good time, and that we ride, eat and drink and enjoy the whole week-end. So....how can I shout "Thank You" any louder? Those two words THANK YOU, don't seem enough, you guys are the best! Dick and Rowena Stillwagon, Ken Orlando, John and Judy Moore, Marty Eubank, Lou Whyte, Marcel Aguirre, Rudy Miller, Howard Brown, Pam Brown and Howard Jr., Daryl Purchase, Marty Walsh, Robert Hernandez, Kim Joiner , Linda Martian, Ken Coser, Garrett McGibbon, Rick Knight, Mary Sheridan, Eric Odenweller, Jim Mennes, Dave Davenport, Marc Alton, Sue Lee, Shelly Lapointe, Carmen and family, Ken Mathews, Joyce Keeton, Gabrielle Falk, Julia Rutherford, Art North, and Tony Porter.
We are so lucky to have such awesome members.
A special double thank you to my good friend Linda Martian...she co-planned the volunteers schedule, shopped for food, with me and she and Ken Czoer were my right hand this whole week-end!
Thank you to all those volunteers who work on Saturday mornings through out the year to build and maintain all those trails that we enjoy riding.
And then there was the Clunker Crit. Jim Mennes, Thank You, .You did an outstanding job with the newest edition to the week-end fun, It just might be a keeper! I'm hearing some chatter from folks who are already launching a search for a clunker and planning their strategies for the second annual Swamp Clunker Crit.
And a big Thank You to all those folks who stepped up and helped to make it a success by jumping in ad riding the race in all their glory!!Costumes and Clunker Bikes!! It was a blast!
Did you notice the excitement and the Biking Buzz on Friday night at the registration and ride sign up? This is what sets the pace for the week-end- all of those smiling faces, so happy to be there.
It was truly a great event.
