    Default Team 16 BASF2019 SLEET 16s

    BAFS2019 Team: SLEET 16s

    Hello, Co-captain, AlanA, and to all of our (as yet) unidentified team memebers!
    Alan, Congratulations on some early strong riding

    I am Dave Pomeroy, aka Fast Friendly Guy and co-captain for BASF 2019 Team 16.
    At the Happy Hour we will decide our team-preferred way to communicate.
    Forum, Strava, etc.

    However we choose to communicate, please feel free to suggest rides, ask questions, etc.

    Before you can join the Strava Club, I will have to follow you on strava which I will do after HH on Thursday
    Allow me to follow you (and you follow me and our other team members)
    Once you have followed me, I can invite you to join

    Our Strava Club: The Vanity Club URL https://www.strava.com/clubs/sleet16s

    If we wish we can change our team name and picture, but I wanted to get started --

    Greetings fellow teammates! It was nice to meet a few of you tonight, but as usual, not many people show up for the Happy hour. It must be tough to have a life. I don't, that's why I like to ride my bike.

    This is my third year for FS, and last year I was a lame captain. That's why I've let Dave become our official captain. I'm good for 160-170 pts per week. If we get a lot of snow or rain, I will most likely go somewhere else so that I can enjoy a nice ride on the bike.

    Hopefully we can do some type of group ride, but since I'm out in the boonies of MD, it may be a bit hard for me.

    Oops, and I forgot to add who is on our team:

    David Helms (who is a strava friend of mine)
    Tim Donovan
    Robin Frei (who I met tonight) yea!
    Donald Harvey
    Andrew Karr
    Lissa Bell
    Karen McKenna
    Andy Greenwood

    And sorry to the big tall dude on our team. After a few beers, I couldn't remember your name. I'm thinking you'll be a good team mate!

    Hi Team 16 BASF2019 SLEET 16s,

    Welcome teammates! Once you find this Forum Thread, subscribe via the forum, for easy repeat access.
    This Forum Thread will be our primary communication mode.

    First order of business: Join our Strava Cub.
    Everyone has either already joined our Strava Club https://www.strava.com/clubs/sleet16s or has been invited to join (go ahead and join when you get the email). Each team member must belong to the club to have his/her miles count. It's closed membership, so request to join and I will accept your request.

    Our team strategy is simple and effective:
    1. Try and ride every day, at least one or two miles (more if possible)
    2. Be safe and have fun
    3. Enjoy competing for the many pointless prizes

    I look forward to meeting everyone on our team and invite you to participate in morning coffee rides, happy hours, group rides, etc.
    Suggestions and ideas are welcome from everyone. Remember this thread is a (public) forum, so other teams can read what we write.
    For team strategies that we may not wish to reveal, we can use email addresses found our Sleet 16s Strava club.

    Safe and fun riding,
    Dave (aka Fast Friendly Guy)

    Greetings Teammates!

    So sad I had to miss the kickoff HH. Looking forward to meeting you all in person. Meanwhile, happy riding!

    About our team status:

    Our team status is understated because a couple of our team members (who correctly joined our club) are not showing up on the team leader-board, so their miles are not showing. I notified Chuck Penna.

    Meanwhile everyone should check for their names and miles on https://freezingsaddles.org/leaderboard/individual_text. If your name or miles are missing here you'll need to fix that.

    Another teammate, Andy Greenwood, is not showing up anywhere. Anyone know Andy? I emailed him to let him know he has until Friday to complete signup.

    Have some fun in the snow, everyone! David P

    Just to be sure, the members not on the leaderboard should re-authorize: https://freezingsaddles.org/authorize and grant complete profile access.

    In other words, if you see yourself on the Friends of BAFS board click on the link above and select the bottom option. I guess it's because this club is private, and you need to change your authorization. In fact, if in doubt, click on the above link and do that.
