    Default Selecting a date for the 2019 Freezing Saddles Welcome Celebration

    Dear wintertime riders,

    If you’re planning to join us at the opening happy hour for Freezing Saddles 2019, then now is the time to weigh in on the date.

    We have two options:

    Monday, 7 January 2019 (6 pm onwards)
    or
    Thursday, 10 January 2019 (6 pm onwards)

    Please check your calendars. If you have issues with either of those dates, or a strong preference for one over the other, please reply on this thread.

    This is not an RSVP list…we’ll set that up shortly, once we nail down the date.

    For those who have not previously participated in our Freezing Saddles celebrations, they are a fun and festive way to make new friends and see old ones. If you’re competing in Freezing Saddles this year, the opening happy hour is a chance to meet your teammates and other wintertime riders. The event will take place at the Bier Baron, located in Foggy Bottom near Dupont Circle in DC.

    Please let me know ASAP if you have issues with the proposed dates.

    Warmest regards,
    wheels&wings

    I'd prefer the Thursday the 10th. Might as well stay late (happy 4+ hours), and I'd rather do that on a Thursday than a Monday.

    I agree with Josh that Thursday would be preferable.

    Monday is orchestra rehearsal, so definitely Thursday for me.

    You could always have orchestra practice at happy hour. I’m requesting Ave Maria.

    Aside from the fact that we don't take requests during rehearsal, the number and height of the logistical hurdles of such a combined event boggles the mind.

    On the other hand, a group ride to our January and/or March concerts would be an excellent FS social activity.

    And the trombone players would just cause all sorts of troubles.

    I doubt Bier Barron will have it, but it sounds good.

    The Brikskellar would have had it on the menu, but been out of it when you asked

    Nice. I might do a pre-FS to the show on 12/15.
