Tracy Barill - Organizer
Bob Koen - Organizer
Sigi Palme - Ride day(s) volunteer, B&B host, cook
Leona Bailey - B&B host

Saturday: High winds, heavy rains, near biblical conditions
Sunday: Delightful weather with a hint of summer
Monday: Much like Sunday. Some light sprinkles

There was quite a bit of praise for the route. While it stayed low, it was not flat. But it used a number of new and quite nice roads that we haven't ridden on before. We should repeat this route sometime, hopefully with better weather.

I will update the route sheets soon with corrections discovered during the ride, or during the preride of the day 3 loop that I did on day 2.

Host Leona and organizer Bob - The control is getting great reviews
