Is catering (or partially catering) the food an option?
DC TRi has 100s of paying members. 120+ members went to the Columbia bric-nic in 2008.
Would it be easier to pre-order sandwiches and sides?
The caterer doesn't have to be Ridgewells or even Whole Foods, but maybe Harris Teeter or a *new* merchant partner that would give us repeat discounts.
I can gear watch or set up.
I know this is going to get a laugh from the people who know me....
BUT I'm willing to sweep either of the courses.
Willing to help out wherever needed.
Must warn you that I'm not a good cook. Does anyone remember those overcooked burgers from last year's training tri...
Put me down for helping out watching gear or cooking.
since i'll be last on the bike, i'm a natural for sweep! sign me up.
I'm trying to e-mail julie to RSVP to this (on the news page) but the e-mail function doesn't work. don't know how/who to report that to. thanks.
You know Jeanne... posting here in this thread counts as an RSVP... :)
i'm just trying to follow the rules, smarty-pants!
I don't know if julie wants all rsvps to her or not. if she does, she's outta luck!
anyway, it's another fun little glitch on the site.
To RSVP to Julie: email Julie
Thanks everyone. Your help is greatly appreciated!
We'll send you an email sometime next week to coordinate. Please send either me or Julie an email with your email address so we can be in touch.
Thanks for volunteering....sorry about the e-mail!
I also posted a new link on the front page for the RSVP.
We will be in touch about the volunteer details soon and will be posting more info about the event next week.
Hi - new member here just trying to get an idea of the distances involved at the Columbia brick-nic. Is there a set distance for the bike and run?
There are two options for the bike ride. There is the 25 mile route and the 17.5 mile route. For the cue sheets and routes, go to http://www.tricolumbia.org/ and look up the Columbia triathlon bike route and the IronGirl triathlon bike route.
The run is, I believe, a 2 mile loop around the lake. I don't remember the exact mileage around the lake.
Thanks, Bryan. Sounds like fun, I'll shoot Julie an email to RSVP.
i will be away so won't be able to attend. Good luck to the NTP's on their birst Brick-Nic.
Count me in.
I'll be there as well!
Here is the map/cue sheet for the oly course:
Is anybody else planning on doing 2 loops on the bike course?
