BTW MSNGR... Just to clarify, this event does not kick off any type of messenger series. I think there is a plan to do a racing series for all fixed gear riders, not just messengers (especially since many that raced last year were not all working messengers) sometime after the World's. Also Kissena wants to start phasing out the "messenger category," especially since so many are just racing in A and B categories anyway. Hope that helps. ROAR

Hey Guys,

Campo wanted me to quickly post a request for some help. We need to raise like $250-300 for caulking and more filler for the track. We are requesting that anyone in a position to help can chip in $5-$10 or whatever you can afford to help buy these supplies. Thanks as always and we appreciate any support that can be provided.

Appreciate it,

Bucky and The Kissena Velodrome Committee

Wow, thanks everyone. You can give the money to me or Campo... We plan on hitting Home Depot on Sat. to get the supplies we need. Also, if anyone wants to help do some work on the track we could use a few hands on Sat.

thanks...
