Is it day of the event registration or through the forum again? Also something for thought. I was hoping to donate something special this year but knew I couldn’t do it on my own after we abruptly became a one income family this year. So I started asking folks around work if they would be interested in making a donation to help out. Being this is in support of Toys for Tots most were quick to reach in the pockets for $5 or $10. In just one day I was able to collect enough to purchase 1 boys and 1 girls bike and I still have time left for more. It is an easy way to maximize the success of this great event and allow people who have no desire to pound them self’s into the ground for 50 miles to participate in one of the most outstanding charities of the holiday season. Just something to think about. Looking forward to the event again this year, you all do a great job!!!

Awesome Idea! Also we will have Marines there to collect toys that day so its a good place for people to drop off toys all day.. We Now have a prize for the rider that collects the most toys from friends and co-workers..

Day of Event registration.. We did kind of a pre reg last year only to get shirt sizes.. Mugs this year so one size fits all..

Pate, Treehugger, Greenbriar, at the top of Greenbriar go left to the waterpipe swath and bomb it all the way to the bottom and catch the last little bit of Camboia, then Carl's trail to home..
