A special thanks to the board members who came out to show their support. We all had a great night -- and yes, we should definitely plan another one soon.
In the mean time, a bunch of us will be staffing a table at Team DC's Spring Sportsfest this Thursday, April 7. (Team DC is the umbrella organization for all of the local gay sports teams, i.e. D.C. Strokes rowing club, Frontrunners, Federal Triangles soccer team, whatever the figure skating team is called, etc.).
It should be a fun event -- it's taking place in the Room and Board on 14th and S streets, NW, from 7 to 10 p.m. A few of us are bringing our bikes and trainers, and others might even show up in spandex. I can promise you a batch of homemade brownies and/or cookies.
Anybody should feel free to stop by our table or hang around for a while to help answer questions from potential new members. It'll be a fun way for us to socialize as a club, too.
Again, here's the info in condensed form:
What: Team DC Spring Sportsfest
When: Thursday, April 7
Time: 7 - 10 p.m.
Place: Room and Board, 1840 14th St. NW

Any interest in another HH. How about Friday August 19?
Alejandro wants to practice his new drinking skills. I'll be out of town that week.
I could do Friday the 19th, though I could also see us scheduling something for September, once everybody's back from their August vacations.
August vacations? What're those? Are there races associated with those vacations?
Well, I, for one, am doing a week-long, espresso-pizza-gelato triathlon in Rome the last week of August. I will podium.
I also vote for a September date. I will be in Utah until the 22nd and would hate to miss it!
Hi friends! Let's have the LGBT HH in September. Maybe the 1st or the 8th?
Fine, fine. So, HH will be in September. I will still go for a drink or 5 on Friday August 19 at Nellies. Hope so see you there for a bandit HH
Wait, wait, wait.... I want to register for Kris' triathlon. I'll take him down.
You'd be surprised, Rob. Ask the women with whom I road-tripped to Myrtle Beach last fall (Abby/Lauren/Amanda/Julie/Angela) about how much I can eat. (Julie recommended I look into competitive eating.)
Adriana -- I vote for the 8th. It could double as a pre-Nation's rally.
It doesn't have to be this big organized event. And put the HH on a Friday for a change. None of this drinking and then going to work the next day.
Well said BCF.
YES PLEASE HAPPY HOUR IN SEPTEMBER!! I was really sad I missed the last one. I am totally in!
I have to chime in on Kris's eating. All I have to say is "sub-6 on the chocolate cake."
I'd be happy to join you on the 19th, Alejandro.
How about Friday the 9th in Sept.?
Will, it's on! Bring an extra liver.
I'm out Sept 9 (IM Moo Sherpa duties) and Sept 16 (Savageman racing duties)
Why don't we have HH Thur Sept 8 & then everyone can volunteer for Nation's packet pickup Friday the 9th? That sounds like fun!!!
Your friendly neighborhood volunteer coordinator,
I need to represent, so count me in for either August or Sept!
I'm for a drink on the 19th as well. Pre nations is fine - beer for some carbs ... or the 19th. I was bummed to miss the last one.
