Thursday Anticipation: The Big One

It is all but here. Only one more sleep and less than 24 hours to go.

Here, again, are the relevant details:

1) We will meet at my place at 9am or Deacons Corner at 10am for the North End crew.

2) It looks like we are well on our way to getting the ride situation sorted out. See the discussion here. Bill has plenty of room for gear, bikes, etc. He's leaving at 1pm. If you can drop off your stuff at his place, he says he can bring it out. Some of us are bringing cx bikes. It's never inappropriate to ride a little cx.

3) Friday's ride will be at Falcon. Hopefully this will make it relatively easy to hook up with the folks who will be trickling in throughout the day.

The weather forecast is looking slightly better. High of 27 and no rain in the Whiteshell on Friday. It looks like we might have to contend with some rain on Saturday and Sunday though. That is hardly the end of the world.

The Secretary only arrives back in town later this evening some time. No word on the projector. Should he be able to come through, perhaps Colin would be so kind as to loan us his copy of the Big Lebowski. It would be even better, of course, if he were there to watch it with us.

latest from the north end...

having just arrived home, we are a already a good deal behind schedule. The only good news is that the projector is in hand. Someone needs to bring a laptop with a vga connection, oh yeah, and movies.

Hey Darryl, I just finished a ton of house reno work and am feeling the rush too - all good though!

I'll bring my laptop (it has a VGA connection and I also have a mike outlet cord that splits to two RCAs), since I'll be doing some video downloading from my helmet cams ...

Is someone bringing tools?
