Hi Waymond,

I'm inviting you to the Major Taylor Chicago meeting on 2/1 at Blackstone Bikes (6100 S. Blackstone) at 1pm.  Come see the new and exciting things that Major Taylor Chicago is doing these days.

Yep, That's correct. I thought you knew about me leaving CBF years ago. Anyway I'm living up here in Milwaukee now. I am in the middle of starting my own community based bicycle organization. I am calling it Milwaukee Bicycle Works. What are you up to? Have you ridden with the Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago? www.mtc3.org you should check them out before the season is over. I think you might like them. let's keep in touch.
