We are in countdown mode for the big 24 Hour Event this coming weekend. The one question that you may have can be answered here, so please read below. Also, we NEED you to comment if you still need something (sleeping bag, tent, etc).
We have food under control, for the most part. If you committed to me (Daniela) verbally to making something, I am counting on it. Please make it! If you have questions about quantity, plan on 40 people (give or take) at our camp.
Who goes when? This is what I have as far as riders go for Thursday: Logan, Tyler, Mose, Donovan, Marcos, Nathan, Sam, David, Daniel (who MUST bring his Spanish homework with him!), Sabina, Skywalker, Keenan (?)
And for Friday: Lizzy, Newgan (?) and Jade, Ben (?) Those going on Friday will need to connect with Marcos’ mother, Lucy Esparza, for a ride. This will be in the afterschool/work hours, and I can personally confirm that with you.
If you don’t see yourself or if I got something wrong, then you should comment to let us know. There are several parents, coaches and team captains going up on both days, plus Saturday morning, so if you are not riding but wanting to join us to help out and have some fun, then let us know.
VERY IMPORTANT: Everyone MUST bring $5 each and 2 cans of food. This event benefits local charities, the Food Bank, being one of them, and it is not too much to ask. We will make sure that each car has the appropriate # of cans before leaving so DON’T bury them too deep in your bag!!!
What do we still need? Here is where the Water & Wood begins to make sense! Yes, we need to have a total of 80 gallons of water and 30 bundles of wood at our campsite alone! If every car going takes as much water as possible, and a few bundles of wood, we should be okay. We certainly don’t want to run out of either, so the more the merrier.
What do you need to bring? Homework. There will be PLENTY OF TIME to do homework at our campsite when you are not riding, sleeping or eating (which is mostly what we do!)
Below is the gear list, AGAIN. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to check over it carefully, making sure you bring proper gear and clothing, and LET US KNOW if you need anything. We need everyone’s help in taking care of themselves and some to pull this event off – and then we can enjoy the ride and hang out time at 24 Hour Town for a few days.
PLEASE COMMENT with any corrections, needs or clarifications. And while you are at it, will you be going to Mexico the following weekend with us?! Oh boy!
