Sun is Shining…Roads WILL be Ready Soon!

Posted: March 24, 2013 in General

So as I sit here to write this most recent post the front door is open and the sun is shining.  I am super hopeful that I will have my bike out on the road very soon.  It has been hanging in the garage all tuned and cleaned for the winter and it looks like it’s ready to roll.  So am I!

I think an update on fundraisers is in order.  April 8th is the Mojo’s fundraiser and is sure to be a success just like last ride.  This will be the first restaurant fundraiser of the season and the buzz is already bigger than last time.  I am trying some new technology this time around to promote the events.  One of my school tech gurus showed my classes an online flyer program called SMORE.  It was a great success in class so I figured I’d give it a try to promote the fundraisers.  If you have not seen it yet, here it is in all of its digital glory!  Also on the fundraising front, I met with Anthony from The Spaghetti Stain this morning to talk out the details of my next event.  Here are some of the details.  It will be Sunday May 19th from 3-8 at the Spaghetti Stain in Dover.  For $14.99 there will be a buffet of pasta, meatballs, salad and garlic bread.  Anthony is generously donating $5 from each meal to the PMC!  Look for a new SMORE with even more details soon after the April 8th event.

And now for some news I have been sitting on for a few months.  I, once again, contacted several different cycling companies to see about donating prizes for the raffle.  Many of them graciously donated jersey’s, bibs or some other component for me to raffle off.  One company, Santiti, went above and beyond.  Here is what they are going to do for one of you lucky riders out there!

THE PRIZE: They are offering a full Santini 6FIVE kit to the winner. Prize includes one 6FIVE jersey, 6FIVE bib shorts, 6FIVE gloves, 6FIVE cap, 6FIVE socks in the size of the winner’s choice. Color options are Black, Red and Royal Blue. Prize will be shipped to the winner from Santin. Full retail value of the prize is $500.  The 6FIVE kit is an homage to Santini’s long and storied history – which starts in 1965 when Pietro Santini established Santini Maglifico and began to create knitwear, specializing in clothing for cyclists. It continues today as Santini cycling apparel is worn worldwide by everyone from the cyclists in your local club ride to top professional teams and organizations (like Vacansoleil, Katusha, Green Edge, the Giro D’ Italia, the UCI, and others) alike. Everything in between those two milestones is, as they say, history. This link provides a timeline of the company’s history and a video about them.  Here is a picture of the kit on the road!


All I can say is that is amazing!  Here is how the drawing is going to work.  Every time you enter into one of the raffles at an event you are automatically entered into the grand prize drawing!  It’s that simple.  If you are not a cyclist and you win…you can always make a cyclist that you do know very happy with this amazing prize!

Well, that’s about it for now.  If you have read this far, thank you!  I hope to see you and ALL your friends at Mojo’s on April 8th!
