"If anyone is around mid-western Wisconsin on May 10th, they should check out the Valleycat in Eau Claire. My friend and I have organized previous races in Eau Claire which were all successes and enjoyed by all. We have t-shirts and a free post-race meal setup; beer and lots of prizes.
Hopefully we can get some people from Madison and the twin cities to show up because it really isn't too far from either of the two. So bring some friends to EC next weekend and have a good time; hopefully the weather is nice.
