1. 2013 Pugsley Worlds – Saturday Feb. 23rd, 2013.
From Jesse today: “For the 2013 PWC3, I just learned this week that the Feb 23 date is the same date as the Chamber Galla. I am NOT moving the date, however, the upstairs of the Oaks Steak House is closed that night for the Galla. Shockey did say that we have permission to use the lower level of the Oaks. There is a bar down there, and bathrooms, and a large common area. We would probably not be able to order off the Oaks menu, but we would be able to order Mabe's Pizzas and possibly allow people to pay for a Mabe's Pizza Buffet. I think this is an OK option, but the idea of Fat Bikers mingling with Galla folks is a little uncertain. Would anyone have any other suggestions for an awards/party venue?
Also, I would like to order official PWC bike number plates this year. I ordered some for the Platty Fatty and they look great and make the event a little more official. A copy of the Platty Fatty number is attached. It cost about $90 for 100 numbers and sponsors are listed at the top, 9:ZERO:7 and WWW.FAT-BIKE.COM. I would list SURLY and DHPT as sponsors on the PWC numbers. I would ask for that to be paid from the club fund, and then paid back with the donations received from the riders on race day. I am still thinking of a couple different routes for the course. Once I have a better plan I will know how many volunteers I will need.
Eric Clement has donated $500.00 cash for half of the prize money and I gave that to Captain for the time being. Fridhof is donating the other half.”
Prizes for awards will be:
$500 first place
$250 second place
$100 third place
$100 First Place
$50 Second Place
No age categories.
Also, If someone can send me an updated DHPT Sponsor list, I can change the rotating images for the sponsorship levels on the Blog. I noticed that it is currently the 2011 sponsors being displayed.
