RAW 2013 - June 14th

Postby bigfriendlyvegan » Tue Jun 04, 2013 9:21 pm

Crafty has posted a date on his facebook site. This is the date that was rumoured, so I assume it's real. June 14th.

RAW is guaranteed to burn off calories, which can then be replaced with special energy drink :)

Are you going to come out and play, Bruce? You'll see me there. Crafty will be announcing (regularly) "and in stone motherless last place, Big Friendly Vegan".

Great news, Col. I can use you as a benchmark again - I can almost keep up with you, on the track at least.

Crap, now two Spacks will be beating me. Do you have Batman and Robin jerseys? If not, you need to get them. If they don't exist, you need to make them exist.

While my workload as a spin instructor has gone up from last year, I feel I have a bit more bandwidth this year. So hopefully I'll make more appearances than last year.

Having said that I can't make week 1, which is got my favourite event :(

Venue hire, lights etc all adds up. Sounds reasonable to me!

Heard on the grapevine that last year the start of RAW was delayed due to CNSW imposing a significant increase in fees for the hire of DGV. Crafty said he wouldn't do RAW at that price, so he didn't until they backed down. I wouldn't be surprised if it caught up to him this year.

I just got a note home from the kid's school and we'll be up for $40 each to go and see our kids, and several hundred others, sing in a choir. $20 for a night of racing is better value in my opinion.

BTW, Crafty offers family discounts. Just ask.

I'm not fussed about it, but some others were very vocal about it. I was just curious

I don't think I will be bringing the kids along too often, but since you asked nicely I'll ask her to whip up some stuff. The oven's broken at the moment, but she can still produce amazing sweeties. I know how much you liked the tofu filled sushi, so I'll make sure I bring some occasionally.

'Twas huge fun, as always. LACC put on a good display. There was a sea of black and gold and we had riders in every division. I even managed to pick up a point in a sprint! For a change I finished all of the races and didn't get lapped and excluded. Doing some real training (sans bananas) has made a difference and I had something in the tank at the end of each race. I've just got to get the mental aspect right to turn that into some stronger finishes. I know where I sit on the totem pole and there are a lot of riders stronger than me, but I'm determined to put in a solid performance. My goal is to be the best Div 4.5 rider that I can possibly be.

Div 5 had about 22, Div 4 had about 23, Div 3 was a bit more than that, I think, Div 2 was 20ish. So, a little bit down from peak numbers, but on par for this part of the season.

This week is win and out and Madi-leads (or Madison, if you're in Div 1).

Come by the LACC section and say "Hello". There are usually at least 4 or 5 forum members floating around, likely more.
