I'm in. Haven't been on in a couple of days. Sorry to hear the news about your FIL Bob, sounds like a great guy.

Saturday Weather Underground forecast for Dennis now calls for clear, high of 57, SSW wind of 13 mph--tailwind out, headwind back. I like that forecast enough that I will not be checking again.

I was hopeful, but I need to face reality: I'm out.

There was something that needed to line up perfectly this past weekend for this to work and it didn't. Maybe next year...

I'm in. A friend, Clive Bolton, who rode with us on the last CCRT Ride will be coming with me. And possibly Eric Colasanto, a former co-worker who also rode with us before.

Accuweather (or if you prefer, inAccuweather) is saying partly sunny with a brief shower or two.

No tandem, alas. I'll probably bring the Centurion. Not sure about cookies.

I wish I could make them as good as you and Sharon do, Jim, or I'd bring some.

I guess we don't need any beer, eh?

If I didn't have a 1hr+ drive home I'd sure be tempted. Thanks for the offer though.

It looks like I'm in. I'll bring the 3-speed Record Ace, and have the quick-detachable mudguards as well. That should appease the rain gods.

Looking forward to meeting you, Michael. I'm a little sketchy, but planning on being there. I wonder if Noglider is still coming?

I'll be there. Not sure whether I'll bring my Raleigh Gran Sport or the Dawes Double Blue--leaning toward the latter at this point.

Now, I'm *really* disappointed. I so wanted to see that RRA.

Okay, I will. The finish has so much patina that it's pretty much impervious to bad weather, if it comes to that.

I'm still in. You want I should make a mailing list to coordinate logistics as we did last year?

My Lovely Wife Carol plans to come but might bail because she is doing a little too much lately.

I'll probably bring my heavy Bianchi Volpe because I'll be departing from High Falls, and my McLean is in NYC currently.

Patina? My Centurion was originally purple and yellow, but when I got the frame from Top it was purple, yellow, and brown from all the exposed metal. It is still about the same (except now it has components and can be ridden). I suppose I should do something about that.

I'm in: my wife and boss are already pissed about taking off two weeks in a row so why waste it?
What to ride? It's non-ferrous, it's purple and silver, and it's French.

Nominal start-riding time is 10AM, right?

Correct, I plan to get there around 9 for pre-ride mental attitude adjustment.
