A Wee Housekeeping Post...

Just a couple items on which I don't like to leave you hanging...

Kits/Prizes: Everyone who bought a kit should have either received it or have been in contact with me about whatever is going on. We have a few in process still, for various complications. But if you haven't received your VDS prize, it's because I haven't sent them. That will change this weekend. Someone recently told me I was every bit as good at managing order fulfillment as I am at managing my VDS team. Speaking of which...

VDS: Things are on or ahead of schedule for VDS 2012! We haven't done a lot of public comment on it this year, since I think we have it more or less down. The VDS Committee is tinkering a bit with the race calendar, but we should easily make our traditional February 1 opening, or possibly launch a little early. If you're new and wondering what I am talking about, go here. Needless to say, there will be a Men's VDS and Women's VDS again in 2012. Hang tight! [God, that's a weird idiom.]
