Non-Race Non-Info for Non-Racers – The Deuce is almost Loose!
All of you non-racers who are non-racing at this weekend’s adventure non-race should listen up or else you might be non-aware of some important details. Please make sure you read all of this post, top to bottom. Got it? Good.
Bob and I are almost done getting the course ready for you. We’ve literally put lots and lots of minutes into planning this thing. In fact, just this last Sunday we both went out there to mark a few checkpoints. Don’t believe me? Here is photographic non-evidence:
Okay, so now it’s time to drop some knowledge bombs on all of you regarding The Deuce. Remember, though… Daylight savings kicks in this weekend, so don’t forget to set your clocks! Below you will find all of the important info…
Sunday, March 13th
150 A. Rief Court
Holts Summit, MO 65043
Non-Registration / Map Hand-Out:
9:00 – 9:30ish
Mandatory Team Gear:
- Compass – 1 per team (we have a couple if you need to borrow one)
- Map Case or really big Ziplock bag for the map – 1 per team
- Bike Tool, Spare Tube, Pump or Inflator
Mandatory Individual Gear:
- Rain Jacket (just in case)
- Bike – Mountain or Cross Bikes would work – you choose
- Bike Helmet to protect your melon
- Red Blinky Tail Light for Bike
- Enough Water and Food
- Enough Clothes to be safe and comfy
- Headlamp or small flashlight (just in case)
- 50 feet of rope and a shovel – for the mystery event
That’s right… There will be a mystery event for you all to enjoy. Make sure you’re prepared for anything, and I mean ANYTHING! Want a hint? Here you go:
Okay, okay… There will be no drinking poop-water or climbing or anything like that. And no, you don’t need to bring 50 feet of rope and a shovel for the mystery event. I REPEAT: There is NO need to bring 50 feet of rope and a shovel so PLEASE don’t go out and buy these things and blame me later. There will be a mystery event, but it doesn’t require any extra gear. It’s nothing too crazy, but it should be fun (I hope).
Good news on the maps… Thanks to Kelly Sumner of Off Road Fixation, we should be able to print our own maps. I have copies of the maps, but I still need to get to a printer. If all goes well, there will be no charge for the maps. So if you see Kelly, give him a bear hug from all of us at Team Virtus.
If there is gear that you don’t have and need to borrow, please let us know. We’d be happy to help you out. And if you have any questions at all, please contact us. We’re really looking forward to it, and we hope you are to. And if you’re one of those unlucky people who isn’t going to be non-racing this weekend at the non-race, then you’re going to feel like this:
It’s not too late to non-race! If you want in, though, you have to let us know TODAY! We’ll be printing the maps tonight. We’ll probably print a few extra maps, but we’d really like to know how many people are going to show up. Hope to see you out there… Yes You!
