-If you have to register day of, please try and make the scheduled times of 11-1 Saturday and 8:30-10 Sunday. I understand travel constraints so there will be someone at registration throughout the day, but make an effort if it's possible. Everyone has to sign in at the registration tent (even pre-reg).

-USA Cycling does not provide alcohol insurance for their events. I have taken out a policy under my own name for Saturday night. I do not want to use it. No under age drinking and no drunk driving. Beer will be served at the UM Cycling BBQ pit, but please use your heads and keep Rolling Thunder as an annual event.
