This is what it's come to...

I'm busy that weekend. I don't know what yet, but I'm busy.

I think they're a bit optimistic in calling it the 1st Annual.

Hmm, a three hour drive to 'race' on rollers? What, you don't want to car-pool, Event?

"1st annual" is also grammatically incorrect (i think). A rollers race. That's almost as fun as the power hours we used to do in college. on rollers.

Power hours? I thought alcohol was involved.

We do Computrainer races here in Jan/Feb/March.

It's good to get out and mess around and see some of the other guys.

Correct.

The first one is the Inaugural. It's not technically an annual event until the 2nd Annual.

I hope point of roller racing is not lost as it moves to the midwest...

the point is to be as un-sober and as much of a pretentious hipster *****bag as possible.
