Jack 'n' Back - Oct. 6 & 7

MS Society's Bike to Jack and Back is an annual highlight for the Fogbees, thanks to Monsieur Cannonball's efforts as team leader for several years.  If you're not familiar with Jack 'n' Back, click on the link above to see what makes this 2-day ride a great event, the donation requirements and how to register. In addition they offer great fundraising tools and strategies. If you have questions, please post or contact me, and if you register for the ride be sure to sign up as a member of the Fogbee team.

For those familiar with Jack 'n' Back, the ride this year will have some key changes...
  • One day ride option on Saturday - Didn't think you could ride due to a conflict on Sunday? No problem - you may arrange your own transportation back to Franklin or, for an additional $20 registration fee, a charter bus will take you back.
  • 2 time slots for the dinner and party "On the Hill": 5-6:30 or 7-8:30. The number of riders has exceeded the capacity of Jack Daniel's hilltop venue, so you will need to designate which time you will attend. After you have registered, email lauren.looser@nmss.org with your choice.  I believe everyone already signed up on the Fogbee team has selected the early slot.
Please consider joining us for this ride to help a great cause and check back here from time to time, as I'll update this post over the several weeks with updates on ride preparation, accommodations, logistics, etc.

I did not see it either. Also, please put me on the hotel list. My last day in PA is 9/7 as we will be on the road back to TN, and I am looking forward to my 4th (I think) Jack n Back.

I updated the post with a email address to reserve your time slot.

I just signed up under our group but it didn't ask about a dinner. I'll email.

Signing up this week when I'm back from Chile...2.5 day work trip, NOT fun trip (almost as much travel time to get here as time with the customers...I could go for some Jack right now)
