C'mon guys!  Here's a chance to do something for the guys and gals that do for us.  COG is the ONLY club IN THE WORLD that has a program like this. Here's your chance to reward one of the many, many un-sung heroes of COG that consistently step up to make things happen.  NOMINATE someone!

Yes!  I understand that this year for each $10 you donate that you will personally get to flog TED just for fun.  If Jorge does a good job as replacement for Ted then he will get it next year. :P
PLEASE DONATE.

"HEY"!!!
  I saw that!!!      (and I know where you live)

Not widely known, but Hans and Gretcherin will be at my house next month.  (Vacation to USA)
       I'll bring him by your place and let him practice on you.. <evil grin>

NOTE:
I've already sent in a preliminary Donation to check the system. Worked fine!!
I'll do another today...
   Each year, I send in several smaller Donations because 1 big one hurts. ("and" my wife doesn't catch me)
   If others want to contribute, this is an EZ way to do it, less painful, and the amount continues to grow.

Ride safe, Ted

NOTE: The contribute notice in my sig line is not correct. I will work on that.

Until then,,,, JORGE, where/how do they contribute????

To the COGdom,, For clarification:
  I noted that the New [Rookie] Slave Laborer, the assistant Slave laborers,   {"and" the "OtP" BOSS} are "ALL" in error.  :)

Ya see,,,
   We are NOT waiting for the list of Nominee's....
       We ARE waiting for the list of Candidates!!!

  and waiting, and WAITING, AND WAITING, etc etc etc etc

Luckily, there is something you can do while ya wait for them to get their act together...
you can "DONATE"!!!!

NOTE: I ("OtP" Chief Slave Laborer / retired) have already sent some in.
           and I will try to send in more "if" we ever learn who the Candidates' are!! 

Ride safe, Ted

Ok Jorge,  if you need to put off shipping my carbs, etc. to get the list of OtP nominees out, I'm fine with that. It's starting to sound like an issue of your personal safety!  The COGgers are getting restless!
