hi Vanessa. I assume the party is for women only. Either way - I have some nice gently used jerseys I would be happy to donate. maybe I could just drop them off and you ladies can have at them ?   thanks

Oh, I didn't actually do anything last night beyond rooting on my wife and the other new racers.  However, I'm certainly happy to be assistance if needed the next 3 evenings (assuming it doesn't involve a wrench, because as several WTB folks can attest, I'm lousy on the mechanical side of things).  If you do need a volunteer, please let me know.  And again, thanks for everything you've done for this.  I'm pretty sure Tonya wouldn't have given it a try otherwise and she had a smashing time.

Had a great time at the race- Now I actually can make those open rides on Saturday without excuses LOL!

Hello friend!  I took the initiative (as you saw) to comment to "crash" Gene.  Hope I didn't infringe on your space.  Looks like Melanie reg'd, so his little cautionary comment didn't "wreck" her vibe.  BTW, you are really rocking this community outreach.  Thanks for all your hard work to make this accessible to new ladies.
