ABD End of Year Meeting & Bowling- Saturday, 12/6/08 (Please RSVP)

Hello ABD’ers, Happy Thanksgiving!

2008 was a big year for us with ABD members riding (successfully) in over 150 events and then helping to put on 17 sanctioned races of our own. You all deserve a huge pat on the back and we hope that you join us next Saturday evening so that you can receive it in person!

All ABD members and their families are welcome to attend a meeting at Prairie Path Cycles-Batavia where we’d like to recognize some of the individual achievements in 2008 and talk a little about what’s on deck for 2009. We’ll be discussing what’s in store for ABD club members, the events, the team, our coaching programs and more. There will also be time for an open discussion as we’d love to have your feedback. And remember that you’re always welcome to e-mail anything club-related on your mind to abdcycling@gmail.com

Following the meeting (which should take about an hour), we’re going walk across the street to the Batavia Bowl for some inter-squad match-ups. Call it “Bowlng for Bikers”, if you will.

Below are the full details and if you plan to attend please RSVP to abdcycling@gmail.com with your name and the number in the party.

WHAT:         ABD’s End Of Year Meeting & Bowling Extravaganza
WHEN:         Saturday, 12/6/08 @ 7pm

Sarge Mstowski's Tuesday Night Workouts Start 12/2- FREE to all ABD'ers

They’re back, and on an all new night!

The Tuesday Night Workouts are held at the
Winfield Middle School and are lead by ABD’s own Rich “the Sarge” Mstowski. Rich incorporates spin-style workouts and a driving soundtrack that are guaranteed to get your legs burning and heart pounding.

Riders are required to bring their bike, cycling clothes & shoes, a towel and an indoor trainer (i.e CycleOps, Tacx, Cateye, etc.) The doors open at 6:45pm and the workout, which includes a warm-up, starts a little after 7 PM. (Enter the Middle School from the parking lot in the back)

Dates for the 2008/2009 Tuesday Night Workouts are:

NOTE: The workouts are FREE and open to all ABD members. However, we do have an
important update for 2008/2009. The school has raised the price of rental of this year and while ABD is happy to pay the bill, we also need as many club members as possible to take advantage of these workouts. If the attendance averages lower than ten riders per workout for the month of December, then after the first of the year the workouts will move to either the PPC-Winfield or PPC-Batavia location.

The Results Are In!

No, not those results- but regardless of whether McCain is your man or you Baracked the vote today, what we know for certain is that ABD is a big winner!

We've been checking over the annual volunteer hour totals and even without the indentured servitude of Board Members Jenny & Terry Cerwin, Steve Bielski, Mike Farrell, Mary Lee Geraghty, Vicki Heck and Brian Hildreth or several of the Men's 1/2 & 3 team riders, ABD'ers logged over  2000 volunteer hours in 2008!  This is an amazing number and once again shows that ABD could never be the club it is without the hard work of its members.

It is a pleasure to offer a 2009 ABD Voler Jersey or Short to those individuals or families that have accumulated at least 18 points after deductions for entry fees (Column C on the spreadsheet). This means for every 18 points collectively within a family you can get one clothing item. For ABD'ers with point balances under 18 we're working to put together sponsorship goodies that you can redeem at our upcoming end-of -the-year shindig.

We also wanted to take this opportunity to recognize the ABD'ers that went that extra step to earn Gold and Silver status this year:
