    Lightbulb Freezing Saddles Welcome

    All registrants should all have received the below message via e-mail. If you didn't, either a) you forgot to register, or b) you have an overactive spam filter. You can private message me to figure out which one it was.

    Hi everyone and welcome to 2018 Freezing Saddles! If you’re receiving this email, you have registered for Freezing Saddles, the Winter Biking Competition and you are on the list to be assigned to a team. Some Frequently Asked Questions on the next steps are below:
    When I registered, I said I had not made any posts on the forum. Can I still play?
    Several people indicated in their registration that they had not yet posted on the Washington Area Bike Forum. You have to have posted at least once on the forum to play. And we don't have the time to check each person who said they hadn't posted, to make sure that they did later. So here is what you need to do if you said in your registration that you hadn't posted:

    • If you have now posted, send a Private Message to forum member cvcalhoun on http://bikearlingtonforum.com telling her so.
    • If you are able to post, but have not done so already, please do so and then send a Private Message to forum member cvcalhoun on http://bikearlingtonforum.comtelling her so.
    • If you have registered but are unable to post, it's because you didn't click on the authorization e-mail you should have been sent after you registered. If you still have that e-mail (or can find it in your spam folder, just click on the link. If you never got it, or have lost it, send a Private Message to forum member Henry on http://bikearlingtonforum.com telling him this. Once you are able to post, follow the same steps as in 2.
    • If you have not registered, please go to http://bikearlingtonforum.com/register.phpand register. Once you have, follow the steps listed in 3.

    What should I do if I can no longer play?
    We're sorry to lose you! You can send a Private Message to forum member Sunyata on http://bikearlingtonforum.com. She is doing team assignments and needs to know if she needs to remove you. We hope you can play next year.
    I'm still in and totally stoked! What do I need to do now?
    1. Confirm that you joined the 2018 Freezing Saddles Strava club herehttps://www.strava.com/clubs/freezingsaddles2018. Most (maybe all) of you have done this, but if you haven’t, please do.
    2. Authorize the Freezing Saddles leaderboard here. Please go do this now. We'll wait...
    When do I find out what team I'm on?
    Teams announcements occur at the Welcoming Happy Hour on January 10th. Preliminary information for happy hour can be found on the Washington Area Bike Forum at http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...-SAVE-THE-DATE! More information will be posted later on the forum.
    I didn't read that last question. When is opening Happy Hour?
    Wednesday, January 10th at 6 p.m. at Bier Baron Tavern on 1523 22nd St NW, Washington, DC.
    Oh no! I can't make it to Happy Hour to find out my team assignment. What should I do?
    Don’t worry! Teams assignments will be posted on the forum later that night, or the next morning. Follow this link http://bikearlingtonforum.com/forumd...ng-Competition and look for a new post announcing team assignments (probably titled “Team Assignments” or something very similar). We'll send out another email a little closer to that time with details on how to join up with your team.
    When does the contest begin?
    The contest starts on January 1st at 12:01 a.m. Teams will not be announced yet, but rides and points count. If you are planning to get a super-early start and be out riding your bike as the year changes, be aware that rides starting before midnight will not be counted by the leaderboard. You need to stop your recording device and restart a new ride after midnight for your miles in 2018 to count.
    Where can I go for more information?
    There is a permanent link here that is updated regularly with new/current information. If the multitude of posts on the forum are confusing, you can check there for basic current information. Game rules and scoring are described there as well.
    I really appreciate this super informative e-mail. How can I say thank you to it's authors?
    Step 1: Find Sunyata, Judd, or cvcalhoun at Happy Hour. Step 2: Provide these people with free food and/or free high fives.
    Thanks, and have fun freezing!

    No, although some of the teams will set up team Facebook groups.
