      Nice to see you're out again.

    Fun!! I love having the young ones join us! Next year I need to consult with the regulars to make sure they're going to be in town and with costumes prepared! :-)

    So that there is no confusion: The meeting time for the ride and costume judging is at 1:30pm at LCCP in the last parking lot. If you'd like to join us before hand at the $1 buffet at Ralleypointe at 12, please do!! Come out and ride!! Costumes are not necessary, but would be fun!

    Seems odd that the buffet is first?

    October 26, 2013

    • Debbie

      Yep, sorry Matt. My friends don't like to ride early. They better show!! :-) I just want to incorporate Rallypointe since they're a great TORC sponsor. You don't have to go. Some people are showing up to Crabtree at 1:30.

      October 26, 2013

  • Debbie

    OMG, Chris L...I almost fell out!! :-). I'm glad you're coming.
    And in other news, I may choose to do the costume judging at Crabtree rather than Rallypointe. Some may choose to bypass the meal/drink and others may be incorporating thir bike into the costume and I'd hate for you to get the bike ready only to pack it up to drive over to Crabtree. Any objections? I suppose some can ride the road over to Crabtree, but not everyone will be able to (costumes, kids, whatever).

      I will be passing on the buffet. Ride only for me. So where should I be for the ride?

      October 24, 2013

    • Debbie

      Crabtree back parking lot 1:30.
