Saturday November 19th 11:30am at

Liberty Frozen Custard
5401 Nicollet Ave. S
Minneapolis, MN

Ride will leave around noon or so.

CWC rules below. Crafty Planet will give away a custom handmade scarf to the top VINTAGE rider.

The CWC offially starts on Thanksgiving and runs through February 28th.
the contest starts on thanksgiving (Nov24) and goes till Feb 28.
This is the web page so far but I'll be updating soon :
CWC

the rules are here:
1. Must be on a scooter. no motorcycles and no
sidecars or 3 wheelers. 2 wheels only this year.
Must be a continuous ride of 10 miles or more. no
logging miles thru a day.

2. Distance is in miles and temp is in degrees F.


3. No wind chill temps. Just the real temperature as
indicated by a good source (weather channel, internet)


4. Contest ends Feb. 28, 2005

5. Coldest temp wins. so if you go 100 miles in 20 deg
and somebody does 10 miles in 19 deg the 19 deg wins.
If 2 people have the same temp the longer distance
wins.

6. This is just for fun so if you want to lie it's up
to you. If somebody sends me an email saying they did
10 miles in 15 deg in Florida I'll know
somethings up.

7. It must be a ride you just did. dont email me
telling me how last year you rode in really cold
weather. Must be from 11/24/05-02/28/06

8. HONORABLE MENTION!!! People living in colder
climates are going to have an advantage in this
contest so i also separate competitors by state. If
your riding in cold weather for your neck of the woods
shot me an email and I'll put you on for your state.
The same CWC rules apply. if you can send a picture
thats a plus.

9. If your starting temp is different then your
finishing temp just use a temp in the middle; example:
"I started the ride in 10 deg and when I was done it
was 0 deg." Your temp would be 5 deg.

*fine!*

Crafty Planet reserves the right to give a special giftie to the overall winner if said winner is deemed craft-worthy, vintage or no. Pertikularly if s/he is local and a friend of Crafty Planet's.

Though it probably wouldn't be a scarf. maybe a hat.


I just don't want my hard-earned skillz going to reward some unknown Silverwing rider in Wisconsin.

so, you can put away the hankie now! Except if you are going to use it as a balaclava for the CWC!

PS. I take it Amy survived the Himalayas? or is she still there? I am easily confused by time these days.

Only if he gave her steel wool. Otherwise, the only thing she could knit with that acrylic yarn is a TnG scooter...

Hey -- we said you'd get a scarf, we didn't say WHEN.

Besides, you can't rush AWESOMENESS.
