Folks, we could use some corner help on Sunday at the Crit. The Retirees that originally volunteered are a bit gun shy with the forecast heat, consequently my volunteer numbers have taken a hit. I’m looking for people to sit at the course corners and make sure no one tries to drive on the course. There will be barricades at every corner, so these are only precautionary measures. As I see it, it could be a very nice day in the sun!
We will need corner folk from 830 – 1300 and 1300 – 1700.
Please let me know if you can help and what shift would work best for you.
P.S. Food and drink will be provided…
Contact Jim Bell (see post below)

Mike Schroden and two others (Dan and Matt?) got down to Plum Creek Thursday night and cleaned up the trails and cut down some of the monstrous grass. Thanks Guys!!
Plum Creek and the N. Loop have gotten some much needed love so riding should be good to great once again.

Anyway, I did get a good story about the lawn mower from Anderson once we returned home that I have to share... He was mowing for an hour and forty minutes and was sort of hearing some clanking noise through his ear protection and didn't think much of it. Apparently it started after he got the mower stuck on a huge stick which stopped the mower, he had to pry it off the stick... So he started up the mower and carried along his way, mowing along and then looked down and there was the blade right at his feet! Hmmm.....
Oh, Trail work Thursday Night at Plum Creek @ 6:00 p.m. Get down there and maybe you too will have a " I was just mowing along" story!

Hi. I'm the producer of a new film called “Bicycle Dreams.” It’s a documentary about the Race Across America, a cross country bicycle race that challenges riders to cover 3000 miles in under ten days. The film looks at the motivations of the riders and their dedicated crews, exploring what it takes both physically and mentally to deal with the extreme challenges of this incredible race.
I’m writing to you because the film will be playing this week at the Solstice Film Festival in Minneapolis and we’re looking for the support of the local cycling community. There seem to be very few cycling films out there so we look at this as an opportunity to bring local bike enthusiasts together.
“Bicycle Dreams” will be playing Saturday June 20th at 11AM at the Suburban World Theater. For tickets and more information, go to www.solsticefilmfest.org/
To watch a trailer for the film go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1ZWZrKSxxs. And if you're interested in the film but can't make it to the screening, DVDs are available on our website, www.bicycledreamsmovie.com
If you can pass this info on to the members of your club or post it on your website, I’d really appreciate it. “Bicycle Dreams” is a film that really captures the spirit of cycling and the dedication required to commit to it, so I’m doing everything I can to reach out to the cycling community. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments and thanks for your time!
