2013 anyone?

With additional traffic generated by today's Coe College e-newsletter, I thought I should post some information about joining Team CoeBRAI in 2013. While we are exploring some changes, this much is certain.

Online registration opens Nov. 15 for RAGBRAI XLI. This year's participants should receive an e-mail from RAGBRAI with registration instructions. First-time participants -- or those returning from prior years -- will first need to create a profile at the RAGBRAI Web site. You will then want to join the group CoeBRAI (#32344) before submitting your entry. Please do not send any payments to RAGBRAI. Instead, those should be sent to me, soy capitan. 

Fees for Team CoeBRAI will remain at $400. Of this, a non-refundable $200 deposit is due March 1 along with a completed (online) entry form and signed waiver. The remaining $200 will be due July 1.

The fee includes the official $150 RAGBRAI entry fee, a Team CoeBRAI jersey, transportation to and from Cedar Rapids and the starting/ending towns, some meals, and snacks and non-alcoholic beverages at each overnight stop.

We'll cap the group at 30 if we continue with our practice of renting a bus for transportation to and from the start and finish. However, we are considering renting vans for the week instead, which would mean a cap of 20 riders. Either way, please only register if you are certain of your intentions.
