I guess that I know who is showing up. I'll see you all there.

I plan to hit the dinner Friday as early as they open.

Former BSU student?

The thought of pizza as a day before race dinner is enough to bind me up... Even if it is Dave's.

Close, I went to NDSU in Fargo.  My mom just moved to Bemidji, and I had the chance to eat at Dave's and fell in LOVE!!

Good luck to all! We won't be at the spaghetti dinner since we'll be driving up there after work on Friday. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the race!

Weather Report as of 5:30, Aug 9

Saturday, August 11 at 8am
Temperature: 67°F Surface Wind: SSE 6mph
Precipitation Potential: 20%
Thunder: Slight Chance (10%-20%) Rain: Slight Chance (10%-20%)

Course may be wet due to overnight rain. Wind, although light, from the SSE is not favorable for this course. One will get a slight advantage on the first leg of the bike course, but will be fighting the wind at the finish.

Not too worried about the weather at this point. The best thing the weather could do for me, would be to dry up the lake and make it a duathlon!

Looking forward to seeing you all there! I'm excited to race and have fun!

Wind doesn't appear to be the issue. Rainfall amounts in excess of 1" are expected Friday night into Saturday. (http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/qpf/fill_98qwbg.gif) Timing and coverage are difficult to forecast, but this appears to be a system that MAY bring significant rainfall to at least parts of the area.

I don't know about you folks, but I like competing in the rain.

Still a shot of rain, but current models push the bulk of precip to the south. Still low wind and middle 60s forecast for race time.

By the time I'm writing this, I realize many of you are already done with the race. Looks like you had 70 degrees and 8-10 mph winds, with no precip. Sounds like a nice race day to me. I'll look forward to seeing the race reports.
