December 10th was the big party for TCR! This takes months and months of thought & planning to pull off. Prizes were ordered in August to ensure they were received, decorations planned & raffle prizes bought. This year I would like to thank Deborah Monigold-Crouch & Morgan Crouch for all the centerpieces & decorations. We also had a great setup crew that braved the downpour to help us get ready. Thank you Julie Woods, Kelli Oberto, Jim Woods & Laurie Ellison. The Agostini sisters catered the event & everyone agreed that the food was 5 star!

2015-2016 was a great season filled with lots of fast rides and many personal bests for many of our riders (myself included). The 2016-2017 season is already underway and TCR is once again offering a year end award. This season we are giving a Galbraith saddle for the overall winner in each division as well as placings to the top 5. We have budgeted $15,000 for our awards this season so don't forget to sign up. Each rider will receive an award AND be eligible for the top 5.
The show is scheduled for January 21st, weather permitting! It will be our annual MISMATCH SHOW, a crazy, wacky tacky day of fun that includes mismatched prizes too! Until then, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year & peace & love to each and everyone of you! 2017.... is going to be AMAZING!!!
