Kid's Tri at Sumner Y

Good Morning Fogbees!

Thank you for volunteering for our Kids Triathlon last year!  Bubba Perry and I are the Volunteer Coordinators for this year's tri.  We are in need of Volunteers this year and we always count on a large group of the Fogbees to help us out on the bike course.  Your group has always been so awesome and supportive of this race and we love having you out on the bike course where you can help our kids if a bike situation arises.

Our race this year is Saturday, August 6.  We would only need you for a few hours and it will make a big impact on the kids.  Please email me back with your shirt size and I will get you plugged into the course.

If you could pass this along to other Fogbees that may want to also volunteer, we would appreciate it.

Tandem Bike Attachment For Sale

I am getting ready to move and am trying to sell a Wee Ride Co pilot  tandem bike attachment.  This is a handy thing that clamps on the seat post of an adult bike and turns it into a tandem bike for pulling a 4- 9 yr old child,  up to 75 pounds.  Some may recall me from a couple years ago when I did the 30 miles BRASS route pulling my son the whole way w/ this bike.  
I would practically give it away to a good home as my youngest child is way past 75 lbs now. If anyone is interested,  they can contact me by phone at 615 530 1302 or by email at

Number of Fogbee hats

I am trying to estimate the number of hats people will order. The person doing the embroidery should have a price to me next week and the number of hats influences the price. I will place this on FB as well so let me know so I can at least come up with a minimum number. Thanks Brian

Lost Keys

While loading my bike I put my Truck keys on Phils bumper and forgot to retrieve them at Beech. If anyone found a set they are probably mine. Also if you are riding New Shackle or Drakes Creek and see keys they may be mine. Doug
