October 5 (Sat): Cliff Cave Race - St. Louis (Rich Pierce/ICCC) XC

The big thing we all decided tonight is that promotion needs to be huge next year so we're going to start early and often.

Also looking to secure series sponsorships to start infusing some capital into the series to help promoters out with the initial costs as well as to help with end of year series awards. If you know of anyone or any company that might be interested in any way (cash, food, beer/beverages, swag, gift cards, whatever).

Definitely looking to cut down classes as well. G has full notes and will be sending them out soon.

peace and riding!!!
