Connie Droppers Anonymous FAQ

Back in the early days a COGer named Kerry Perkins (CDA #1, former SWAD, now AAD for North L.A. and Ventura County, California) started awarding Connie owners who had the misfortune of dropping their bikes while standing still with a number... A Connie Droppers Anonymous number. Not an easy thing to do, as the prospective CDA recipient had to tell their tale of woe to the entire list. This was initially done on the Micapeak listserver, 2000 subscribers strong. With all of Kerry's COG duties it became difficult to keep up with CDA numbers. Greg Habel had been a member of COG for a while, and seen many of these tales of woe on the listserver. Greg had a few ideas (including lesson's learned being important to pass along), and asked Kerry if he would mind Greg taking over. With Kerry's blessing and wisdom, Greg decided to take this on. Greg continued to expand the program and information. Eventually Greg needed to move on to other things and at this point passed on the torch to Paul Campbell aka ChipDoc. ChipDoc continued the tradition of CDA, and nurturing a good community and program until late 2015. COG got CDA going again on 11/22/2021.
