RE: Popcycle Derby 2018
Will it be warm? Will it be cold?
Will folks stop on the road where the checkpoint workers can see them?
How many route sheets with Don need to print?

Warm and cold are relative to how much of a wuss you are.
Hopefully not, that's a DQ as far as I can remember.
Between 10 and 1000 at a rough guess.

Show up for more accurate answers.

Well it isn't a DQ as of last year... I ahh... would happen to know personally.

If it's not reproducible, it didn't happen.

Your time is recorded when the check point workers see your foot is down.We don't DQ. We just give you more points.

And when is more points ever a bad thing?!?! Oh, right...

RE: Popcycle Derby 2018
Dave W and I are thinking about staying somewhere near there (give or take an hour or so) Saturday evening. I know the annual meeting is not the following day (Sunday), but if I can manage to get up there is anyone interesting in doing something or hanging out Saturday evening or Sunday morning?

RE: Popcycle Derby 2018
I would be interested in hanging out for supper and maybe longer depending how far away I am from home with a bike that needs to get unloaded. Busy Sunday morning til 10:30.
I have two guest bedrooms available.

RE: Popcycle Derby 2018
For those of you from out of town or just want to have more fun than we will already be having at the Popcycle Derby, I have made reservations at the Green Mill in Eden Prairie for 5:00, under the name of Popcycle Motorcycle Derby. They are going to put us in the back because then we can make as much ruckus as we want and not bother other people Smile
How many of you are game?

RE: Popcycle Derby 2018
It isn't looking good for me making it tomorrow. I am currently trying to cobble together something to get the furnace to run. The control board is shot, and I only have a couple little electric space heaters. I probably have a midnight Walmart run for more heaters ahead of me, hopefully the plumber in Alexandria has a control board. I'm not very hopeful. Maybe I'll get to go out and grab a GT picture tomorrow if nothing else.

RE: Popcycle Derby 2018
So, I just got done figuring out where to plug in all these heaters so they don't overload breakers. The furnace needs a new control board, and I don't have the components to solder it back together yet. I'm tired, and not going to make it tomorrow. Don is going to have to wait another year to get his rocket stove, LOL

Sorry to hear that Kory. Next year. Very disappointed in mother nature. Looks like the biggest issue will be mud.
