OtP Ride Report
« on: December 20, 2016, 01:18:40 pm »
Would someone be able/willing to post Anette's ride report for this past summer's OtP trip.  I don't get the Concourrier, but we hosted her on her way through Nashville.  It would be nice to read how her ride went.

Hi Ted,
No... I brew it. It's copyrighted material and cannot be posted, so I removed the post.

Anette wrote and sent her report to the Concourier.
I am a COG member, but for some reason I don't receive the concourier 😟
Therefore over here in Germany we cannot know wether the issue with
the report is already distributed. Anette won't post a copy here before.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Bernd, concerning the mailing of the Concourier. I just checked the last two mailing lists and you are on them.  I can not explain why you are not receiving them, but I can safely state it is not because we are not mailing them to you.

PM me an address and I can send out a Conc to you. Annete was great to meet in Helen and her husband was a blast to ride with in the Alps. Great folks and happy to help if I can.

They posted PDF versions of the Concourier in the Library until 2015, then stopped. It would be great if it was restarted, and filled in to include 2016 onward.

I thought last year that Bernd said the problem was solved.
If still a problem, I'll gladly send him copies.

We'll be seeing Bernd and Anette in August.
Maybe I'll arrange a care package for him to take home....   >:D

Ride safe, Ted

Meanwhile Dan and Ted sent me a pdf copy of the fall issue of the Concourier with Anettes report.
The report can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/401849443334008/permalink/615310615321222/

Concerning the receiving problem.
I am a busy member of CCE and one of the most frequent attandees of GTR events.
Since 2013 I am supporting OTP in different ways. 2011 I was honored to be the traveler.
Since 2012 I'm organising and guiding the OTP rides on our side of e pond.
As far as I remember, I'm a continous regular member of COG.
Because I'm living overseas, I cannot enjoy most of the membership benefits.
Therefore it is most important for me to read forum posts and Concourier infos.
I know all OTPers (both sides of the pond), nearly all GCE members and a lot of COG members personally.
The only response which I get for my OTP work and financial engagement is to read the OTP report(s).

Up to the beginning of 2015 I got the Concourier regularly.
Unfortunately it was send without any cover, only with an adress sticker.
Often it was damaged or just wet, when it arrived.

But then receiving stopped immediatly.
I discussed this with Fred Booth.
Then I got the spring issue in a waterproof envelope 👍😃
and Ted brought along the missing issues.

Unfortunately my fun was too early 😞
Since summer 2016 I got no more issue (Ted sent me a pdf copy of the fall issue).

I understand that it costs more to send it overseas. On the other hand I cannot enjoy
different other membership benefits....

Hopefully somebody can fix that problem... 😘

Hopefully we can figure it out.
PM me your address, so we can check that is is correct in COG's files.
Also,, send me another shipping address to use.
   Perhaps your work address.

Ride safe, Ted

Check your PM's.  Maybe I can help band-aid the situation.

Hi Fred, Ted, Dan, Patrick,

thanks for all your help.

I got pdfs from Dan and Ted concerning the fall issue.
And - today the winter issue of the Concourier arrived in nearly good condition  :)
On the rear side, my correct adress in Linden is printed.

On the waterproof foil envelop I found a sticker on which was written:
"Media Germany - Comprador 22525 Hamburg, PVST Entgelt Bezahlt Deutsche Post AG, VKZ 21668"

-> It seems, it works - sometimes - and Fred did corectly.  :))

If you and Fred want to try it the way I suggested, it may get  to you faster.  Normally periodicals/magazines take longer to arrive.  The way I recommended should be faster.

Sounds like a good plan to me.
Either that, or try a different address to ship to Bernd...

I don't know, when the winter issue was sent and via what way.
I only know, that it arrived yesterday or today. We found it this morning
in the letter box. Normaly any mail arrives. I always use the same adress
and order goods around the world. I have no problems with my other
(monthly) magazines.
I think we schould test it more for a while.

No problem.  I'll go ahead and send Fred the stuff to mail my next issue of the Concourier via First Class mail and we'll see how long it takes to get here.  Then compare it to your delivery time of the same issue.   Hopefully things will work out..
