<a href="http://www.trackstarnyc.com/halloweekend/"><img src="http://www.trackstarnyc.com/halloweekend/halloweenscreen.jpg" width="386" height="600" border="3"></a>I am going to make sure that no one forgets:

So the checkpoints are out for the Halloweekend Race on Saturday the 29th: La Calavera.
FDR Park (21st & East River)
Calvary Cemetery (Laurel Hill & 56th rd, Maspeth Queens)
DeWitt Clinton Park (52nd st & 11th ave)
St. Michael's Russian Byzantine Church (Jersey st & Mulberry st)
Sutton Place Park (58th st & Suttop pl)
Small Pox Infirmary (South Point Park Roosevelt Island)
First Shearith Israel Cemetery (55 St James st)
The Spot Park (11th ave btw 35th /36th)
Black Label Bike Kill (Willoughby & Sandford Brooklyn)
Farragut Houses Project (Gold st & Sands st, Brooklyn)
The Dakota (1 w 72nd st)
Second Shearith Israel Cemetery (76 w 11th st)
This is going to be a brutal race. Not for the faint of heart. We got some tricks up or sleaves to scare the treats outta ya'll.
So get prepared. Especially if your coming from outta town.

This weekend is the east coast polo championships. There's an alleycat Saturday night connected to the weekend event. As far as I understand, registration will be at a local bar TBA Friday night. If there's no word to be found about the bar, the competition starts early Sat morning at TipTop Park, Front & Allen Sts. ~9am

DC Halloween Haulass Hide-n-Seek

14th and K NW (Sherwood!). Riding starts promptly at 8, so plan to arrive at 7:30 or thereabouts.

Bring some friends, a bag, a pen, and a costume.

I'm not the organizer, but I've been told that there will be an alleycat in New Brunswick NJ this coming Friday (10.29). Its only an hour by train from NYC, so if you're in town for Halloweekend but don't feel like losing a $100 come on down. Or if you're on your way to NYC (via train or car) stop by, race, see some cute college girls, and have a few drinks (way cheaper than NYC).
I believe the start/registration location is the top level of the "College Ave Parking Deck":
http://gobble.rutgers.edu/newpats/cacmap.htm
On this map, the parking deck is near the Northwest corner of campus, behind Brower Commons and adjacent to Financial Aid.
I believe race start time is 4pm-ish.
I know that this is pretty short notice, but I hope that some of you will be able to make it.
Feel free to PM me w/ questions. I'll know more concrete info from the organizer by tomorrow.

PS. New Brunswick is 5 minutes off of Exit 9 on the (in)famous NJ Turnpike. It is also a stop on the Northeast Corridor NJ Transit line. The station is only a 3 minute ride to the parking deck.

Features a usual fun class and a winner take all "pro" classification with longer distances, and less bullsh*t.
