T minus 9 days:

Race organizer Johnny S sends the following note. Note that he would like a response to help assist in the planning. Please respond. If you don't have his email, drop a comment below. Also, plan to bring $5 to help pay for the facilities:

Plenty of places to sleep if anybody wants to crash in our little hamlet.

[update: 2/28/08, 11:59 am] I just received a note from El Presidente: Friday night is "Indian Meal Night" at South Forty!! So if anyone is planning to head down south a little earlier, let him know so he can reserve you a seat. A weekend in Altona with curry, bike racing, and college hoops. Sounds perfect. I'll check the schedule and see if we can make it work.

T minus 92 days:

Ice Bergen didn't make it last year. Hopefully he'll be back this year for the 6th edition.

What a bummer. I am in the theatre with our high school production this weekend, so I will be unable to attend what looks to be a fantastic event.

No I think that spelling was just about right, Paddy. (cue Highway Star).

I'll be in Altona. Working on the missus.

I hope to be there (probably with Nick) for the biking but may have to miss the post-race activities.
