24 Hour Race

Hello All!

If you haven't already done so, now's the time to register for 24 Hours Round the Clock, taking place on Memorial Weekend, May 23-24th! Log onto www.roundandround.com for all the details! This year marks our 10th anniversary, and coincides with the 40th anniversary of Woodstock...and as you all know, this IS the Woodstock of mountain bike racing, so that is our theme this year....and you'll want to remember that when determining what to do to win our annual best campsite award!! We've got an announcer from WICN public radio in Worcester, MA coming out to announce and play all that great music for us....and other fun events planned. Speaking of fun events....don't forget the free kids race on Sunday at 10am....kids 11 and under can participate...on 2 wheels, 4 wheels or just running if they prefer...they're all invited and all winners! Prizes for everyone of them. Also, NiteRider will have lighting units to rent this year. The contact info for reserving them is on our website...so make sure to email Tommy if you want to take advantage of this offer. They'll also be onsite again for charging and support. The course looks to be in pretty good shape this year, and yes, we'll be able to use Little Vietnam! No flooding issues this year, even though we had a ton of winter weather! We have a GPS of the course on our website...so if you are interested and have the appropriate software, it's there for you. We'd like to ask that each of you bring a can of food for the local food bank. We will match whatever is donated and get it to the food bank. It's our community involvement that helps sustain the greatness of our nation. We're working on a recycling station this year...if anyone would like to work the station and receive a small stipend, let us know by calling Wendy at 509-953-9831. We'll work out the details with them. That's about it for now....hope you'll join us if you haven't already for a great weekend of camping, riding, and whatever else you are enlightened to do for a 24 hour period!

Thanks to our sponsors!
