Brasstown Bald Buster...BUSTED! (LONG)

I rode Brasstown Bald Buster this year. Singed up in January and also ordered a jersey thru Active.com. It's almost August & no jersey. Same thing for a friend of mine from Durhan, NC. Tried to send an e-mail to the ride organizer (Surge Sports) listed on the web site & guess what, bounces back not in existence. Send the following e-mail to the Helen /White Co. GA. Chamber of Commerce several weeks ago:

"Dear Concerned Person(s)
I wanted to pass along this information regarding the organizer of the annual "Brasstown Bald Buster" ride for 2011. I attempted to contact them thru the e-mail address provided at the ride website, but the e-mail was returned as undeliverable. Perhaps you have additional contact information available. Additionally, please note that I have another friend here in North Carolina who participated and paid for a jersey who is in the same circumstance. I would hate that such a great event would be spoiled by such poor business practices on behalf of the organizer, and would be concerned on it's reflection on your and others sponsors as well as the community of Helen. Such activity would quickly become the subject of internet message boards, cycling discussion groups, and social networking sites. Any help you might provide would be appreciated."

No response...Guess if you want the organizer to steal your money and the local chamber to stand by and watch, then this ride next year will be for you. I'll be spreading the word as far afield as I can that these folks are not to be trusted with your hard earned cash!!!

I'm confused.

You ordered a jersey through active.com

That's who should be responsible for delivery of the jersey. That's what they get paid for, right?

Did you contact their support? Here's the link: https://community.active.com/community/active

Or call them toll free @ 877-228-4881

It's my understanding the organizers are mainly a volunteer group not professionals. That's how active.com comes in.

But I could be wrong. I often am. Maybe it is a group of professional fraudsters.
