2016 Race Roster


Ok. Here is the official race roster for the 2016 edition of the 'Rok. I am making the call to cap it at 150 and have a waiting list. I'm VERY confident that anyone that is on the waiting list will get in unless we have a much smaller dropout rate than previous years. I figured it's better for my sanity if I don't have a sliding scale for the roster...

How did I get to the final roster? I yanked out about 20 cards. These people are on the wait list in the order that they were pulled.

Some other notes:

We had a decent sized pile of folks who didn't get the cards postmarked by the 31st. Sorry, but regardless of if the post office screwed up, or what... 2017 will be your friend.

I was VERY close to throwing out a pile of cards that obviously were not filled out by the person submitting the card. The only thing that saved them was that I didn't know who actually sent in the cards... so at least one person actually was "responsible for themselves". Seriously. You can call me a grouch but if you are committing to a long and hard race is it that freaking hard to send in your own darn card? Eventually I'll get over it, but I just do NOT get it.

So... now that that is done with...

Please, please PLEASE - if you cannot make it to the race on the 9th of April for any reason (I don't judge!) please let me know at isaacmgiesen@gmail.com . 1) I can then give your spot to someone on the waiting list, and 2) I don't have to make lots of extra copies of cue sheets etc. They add up and are not free.

Like people were having one person send in cards for whole groups of friends?

Yes. There were at least a couple of instances of this. Maybe I wasn't clear enough in the registration instructions so I didn't throw any of them out. I'm over it and will just have to be more clear next year. It's all good.

Can I ride this year? I always seem to miss the social media hoopla.
