Mel, Kris, rest of OBRA crew and all the volunteers,
I hope you know in your heart that the VAST majority of us appreciate all the work you folks put in just so we can ride our bikes in strange places! I (and have to assume most others) appreciate your caring about your registration crew, but rest assured the self-centered person who went off will either realize what a jerk he/she was/is or...karma will take care of it at some point.
see ya soon,
slow and in the way ronnie

Please folks remember to show respect and follow the rules at OBRA bike races. Fees are not negotiable and registration folks are volunteers that are there to make it possible for you to race. One individual, who shall not be named, was extremely rude and his behaviour was unacceptable at the registration table at short track last night. I hope you see this and improve your behaviour at future races.

I feel I should apologize to my registration crew that had to deal with this rider, but I'm not the one who should.....

Thanks to all the rest of you that show your appreciation and thank us on a regular basis. We do this for you!
