We will match the 200 as well. This is extremely displeasing to hear about, to say the least.

It's disappointing to hear this news. I would be shocked to hear it's an OBRA member. In order to help ease the pain, I will match up to a total of $200 contributions to OBRA made to replace this shipment in the next 7 days. Come on M60+, let's step up to help.

During the CX races at Alpenrose a Honda
generator was stolen. On Tuesday
we noted that the key box for the
rental bike container at the velodrome
was missing. Later it was noted that
the key box for one of the trucks had
been removed, apparently with a cutting
torch but the truck was still
locked. Today when the truck arrived in
Bend it was noted that there was a
generator and 2 boxes of radios no
longer in the truck. Clearly the people
that removed the truck key box have
gotten keys at least to the containers
and potentially to all the OBRA storage
sites at Alpenrose.

So far the noted losses are:
- Honda generators x2
- Multiple Puxing radios
- Large Pelican cases x 2

These items are labeled/engraved with
"OBRA". I suspect that this list may
grow as inventory is done, although
this theft represents pretty much all
the high value items that are stored at
the Diary. The locks are all being
changed now. A police report is being
filed.

A distressing aspect of this loss is
that the nature of the thefts makes
it possible that it is someone
associated with bike racing and OBRA who
was involved. I would request that
everyone keep their eyes open for the
stolen items or let us know any
information you might have about this.
