POS Winner - Tim Haskew
Raffle Winner - Official Jim

Thanks again to Vassago Bicycle Company for stepping up for the rednecks this year.
Now if someone could do a nice write up complete with pictures and pie charts and such for the sponsors...that would be great.

Free Race in Rome, Ga.

Rome,Ga. - there will be a FREE race this weekend and in January a 4 race series?

Cycle Therapy in Rome is hosting at a really cool farm venue. I rode it earlier this season and had a blast. The Jan series is $20 a race and you can race as many races as you want. The money will benefit charity and there are prizes.

Notes for Sunday

Cullman likes to back that thang up, so make sure you note the schedule change on the flyer.

We will do awards and contest winners AFTER the conclusion of the Men's 1/2/3 race, so plan on sticking around, eh. If you are not present at the awards ceremony you will be struck out of contention and the next in line will move up.

We will be raffling off the SWEET Vassago Fisticuff frame/fork also, so Sunday is your last chance to get in on that $5 action.

I have a couple of hands full of POS candidates in my mind and all have a stake for different reasons. I will throw those names in a hat and draw a name for the winner of the other frame/fork.

Almost in the books

Don't forget that final points calculation will "drop" your lowest score. I get the impression that some folks think they have a lock after Montgomery...better do the math and think about scenarios...

I'd like to give a big thanks to Jon Tubbs for helping make the wheels go round this season. Jon contacted me before the season began with sort of a sketchy angle regarding soft goods and screen printing. I thought for sure I was just being angled to buy stuff from him. We met for lunch at the Bottletree one day and he basically laid out a nice proposal and it was clear that his intentions were simply to help the series raise funds on a year where funds were extremely hard to raise. Jon's contribution certainly made things happen this year and we should all give him thanks. This is his last week in the 'ham as he has accepted a position with VANS in Los Angeles. We can all show thanks by supporting another event that Jon is helping put the wheels on:

Thursday Dec 3, 2009 8:00 PM

To raise funds for a local skate park, Faith Skate Supply is hosting their three-part holiday party here at Bottletree.

From 9pm until we'll have The Disguised, Arclight and Skeptic?

I believe the first band (The Disguised)is Jon's band, this is their first and only? show.

Be There.
