To: DISTANCE DERBY 2013 RIDERS
Good Afternoon 2013 Distance Derby Riders! I am excited you are entering the Distance Derby either for the first time or are a 2012 alumni who is ready for more! As of today, I think I have all your bios updated.
Just to make sure, go to
and look in the right hand column titled
THE TEAMS (* INDICATES 2012 AND 2013 COMPETITOR)
and look for your name or team name. Click on it and see if it takes you to your bio page. This step is VERY IMPORTANT as it will be how you enter your miles. So, just as a test, while on your BIO page, scroll to the bottom under "COMMENT" and enter the following:
I AM IN THE DERBY
If you have any problems entering in the comments, refer to this page for instructions.
It is up to each of you to read the Rules shown on this page
http://distancederby2013.blogspot.com/ to ensure proper credit is given for each ride. It is very helpful to the scribe if when entering your miles you do your own calculation from your last entry so the scribe can check it with her records and make any corrections immediately.
22 miles YTD
I won't restate all the Rules here; you can read them - but the most important thing to remember is to enter your miles WITHIN 7 DAYS of your ride or you will not get credit for them. Details are on the Rule page.
Diane Beckham will be the administrator of the Distance Derby this coming year. I (Tammy Vasa) will back her up and provide occasional commentary on the Distance Derby webpage. This is an interactive game so enter comments to the commentary. Its fun to get to know each other.
Finally, if you want to interact as a group, you can sign up for the Google Distance Derby Group here:
Remember, entered riders can start recording miles on January 1, 2013. Good luck!
