TNR Report

A good turnout. Made even better by the unexpected appearance of an old friend. Aiden made a rare TNR appearance, along with Cousin Adam, Craig, Cousin Thomas, KK, Tom K, and me.

KK arrived on his new post-accident replacement bike--a far too colour coordinated 29er.

Having just come from work, Adam was hungry. And so a trip to VJ's was in order.

From there, we hit a few tunnels in the Exchange. And checked out the parking garage beside the MTS Centre. This did not go over so well with the security guard who happened to be on duty. When we got to the top, he was flitting about, Penner style, and apparently waiting for us. Clutching something on his belt, or maybe just trying to prevent his trousers from falling down, he looked very concerned. He claimed we were endangering our lives and his job. We politely disagreed, but nevertheless obeyed his orders to leave the premises. We did not, however, obey his order to take the elevator down, and elected to ride the corkscrew instead. By this time, fingers frozen, we made out way to the klubhaus, where the Secretary was waiting to greet us in the parking lot.

At the klubhaus, Adam proudly showed off the $500 worth of Sugoi gear he won as part of the cx participation series. After getting our attention by buying the first round, Tom K excitedly shared the details of a new enduro race he and the Training Co-op gang will be putting on out in the Pembina Valley. It looks like 2010 could be a banner year for the OperaciĆ³n MUERTO crowd. As usual, the state of the tunes received some significant attention. It was a disappointing night on the music front. But once again, it gave Vic an opportunity to show off one of his new apps. That guy is so cool with all his fancy technology. And finally, the 2010 Nordic Cross calendar was finalized. We are ready for liftoff. Good times.
