Today, we happened to reach two membership milestones on the same day, and that seems post-worthy. Thanks to Thomas Felmley and Michael Preysman we now have 200 website members and [...]

I’m guessing a lot of people went to sleep thinking that rolls would be canceled Saturday morning, but Sweepstakes found a way to make it happen.

The buggy alumni association’s coverage of the last 5 men’s course-record-breaking years continues this week with 1983. Remember, these buggy books are just a sample of the exhaustive collection we are compiling for distribution on a CD available on raceday. The year was 1983, and CIA’s 1981 course record of 2:10.50 was still the time [...]

It’s spring break, and the kids are in Acapulco so there were no rolls this weekend, and there will be none next weekend. Bad timing too, because it was 55F here at 7am yesterday. Would have been a nice one. We’ll pick up with the pictures, reports and hopefully some timing on March 21.
