It was dry in Granville as I drove towards New Albany. I drove into a rain shower and out, drove through another, passed Farmer Mike on 161 and arrived in the parking lot. There, a group of Jeff S, Dennis, Flyin T, David and I gathered for a general discussion about the elements as Mike rolled in and confirmed he was soaked. Mark V made a run through the parking lot but did not stop, a couple others did as well but with the A & F ride snatching a few of the regulars coupled with the light rain, it did not look as if there would be an organized ride. Jeff finally called off the organized element of our ride and most of us left around 5:45 so not sure if anyone actually got out at 6:00.
Wow, that Ryan Roe's ride report produced some interesting comments and I like that. His style of bragging about his own accomplishments while denigrating everyone else is a winner so I am promoting him to Head Cub Report and demoting Nathan to Special Assistant to the HCR. Amanda remains the Ink Stained Wretch and will fill in when I wear out the fingers of the other two. Flyin Tuna remains as a remote back-up Boiler Room Operator mostly because reading long, run-on sentences composed entirely of single syllable words can be tough on you. For example, from her last report: "See Bob ride, ride Bob ride and hit the hill hard but do not drop me and make sure you wait for me if you do and buy me food at the food stop for me." OK, when desperate I can use something like that but hopefully whenever I am absent from a ride Ryan, Nate or Amanda can fill in.
Looks like the Covered Bridge ride is everyone's choice for Saturday and then the Westerville Dry Run ride for Sunday.
