TNR Report

The Secretary called just before we left to say that he an the Impaler would be riding with the Fort Garry Car Club today. That is too bad. They missed a sweet ride through the Ass Forest. JP and the Cricket tried hard, but they couldn't manage to suppress their glee.

On the way back to the klubhaus, we found the bridge at Bruce Park flooded out. That almost never happens. Jonny G tried to ride it anyway. He did not succeed.

Back in the safety of the klubhaus, Jonny G, JP, and Brad told us all about the Brandon race and preached the gospel of the 29er. Mike, the night manager, came out to consult with the President about the placement of our jerseys in the rafters. He promised they would be hanging above our table the next time we were there. That is good. Because on Tuesday our table was taken by some loudmouth men in uniform. This aggression will not stand, man.

This is the time of year with talk about the Spring Ride really starts to ramp up. Juan Eppstein was there to call the annual Spring Dogfest for next Tuesday. And the President called for the annual counting of the numbers contained in The Book. This is what they came up with.

It all seemed very good for a while. But when we paid a bit more attention to the numbers, it became clear that something was amiss. So we very politely submitted a challenge of the results. Happily, our suspicion turned out to be correct. These numbers are from the edition of The Book that began in December. The totals for the year should be more like double the above amount. That is good news.

That number is close to half, according to 2010's accrued beer budget.

I have left a message with "the office" to get the final figure.
