Winter Romp!

Hey All Bruce just sent out his first e-mail about the Romp.

Quote:
Greetings,

I trust everyone had a great Holiday season.

This is a quick test of the Winter Romp list..

Hard to believe it is only six weeks away.
If you want to be removed from this list or know someone
Who should / wants to be on it . This is the time to contact me.

Dates this year. 17 - 20 February.

Holiday Inn is again offering a "Land Rover" rate
Of $53.00 per night. Just mention your are with the Land Rover
group when registering. Phone numbers: 207.873.0111 or 1.800.785.0111.

Jeff Berg is currently working to get the Romp website up and running with its
own address..

In the mean time. the site can be found at this temporary address:

www.roverpolo.org/winter_romp/index.htm

Will post new address when site is up and running.


Till next time.

Bruce
So if anyone did not get this e-mail you may want to contact Bruce through the link and ask to be added to the mailing list.

So who is going to try and make it this year?

I think you'll need a beach chair and sun tan lotion.

Banana hammock not required...


Ground should stay frozen, but the stream crossings will be ugly.

Thats where a number of us will be shacked up. Make sure to mention LandRover Group to get the discount! (you will have to call the hotel direct for that)

George, contact Bruce, the guy who organizes this. Undoubtedly, he will be having breakfast and pre-runing trails with the crazy french canadiens on Friday.
