Cool heads prevailed. We are officially racing bikes in Greenfield’s Highland Park this summer starting June 2nd 2010. Every Wednesday. We now have a ridiculous amount of work to do. We have to set the pyro, build bleachers, book U2, and find a fried dough booth somewhere. Actually we don’t. It’s nice though, to make a list of things that you don’t need to do, that way your actual to do list seems more manageable. Don’t worry, I’ve got this.
More good news, Mesa Verde and Domino’s Pizza will be supplying snacks for EVERY race. That means we’ll always have some chips, salsa and pizza to munch on. That’s a good baseline! The Gill Tavern and People’s Pint are in as well, as a special guest one-off type thing. If Mesa and Domino’s are doing every race then I assume for a one-off appearance, that restaurant will throw down and do something crazy. Competition. It will be good for us in so many ways!
I will now go forth and spread the good word a bit on the interweb.
We will be doing a bit of trailwork this Sunday. Volunteers are always appreciated and we will maybe ride the course after we work on it. One thing is for sure, beers at the shop afterward. Perhaps the grilling of food of some sort. Meeting at Highland Park parking lot at 10:00am. Come anytime, just listen for the leaf blower. Bring water.
