Dear Bike MS Team Captain -
The wait is over... TEAM WEEK HAS ARRIVED!
Team Week is a once-a-season event that will help boost your team's membership and fundraising by offering awesome prizes and bragging rights. All official teams are eligible (an official team is a registered team with four or more fundraising team members - cyclists and Super Spokes crew members are fundraisers).
We're offering three Challenges, and for the winner of each Challenge, we're giving you the opportunity to rent a TEAM CABIN at Bike MS.
Really, it's not a cabin, it's a luxurious multi-room, relaxation home for you and your team. The Cabin sleeps 18 people (nine on one side, nine on the other), includes private indoor toilets and showers, plus a team party room featuring a mini-fridge, and will be just steps away from the Team Village, beer garden, and start/finish. Oh, and it includes a back patio for relaxing after a long day. Bring you, your team, some refreshments, and you're set for the best weekend ever.
Check out Meadowkirk's website (our host for the week), for more information: http://www.meadowkirk.org/Files/The%20Cottages%20at%20Meadowkirk%20for%20Web.pdf (FYI: they call our Team Cabins, "cottages". I think that calling them "cottages" makes them sound classier. Your thoughts?)
In addition, we'll have some super awesome BONUS challenges and prizes throughout the week. Be on your toes!
HOW TO WIN:
Challenge 1: The LARGEST team (based on number of fundraising team members)
Challenge 2: The HIGHEST TOTAL FUNDRAISING team
Challenge 3: Wild card cabin: EVERY TEAM MEMBER (fundraising) YOU REGISTER THIS WEEK will give your team one raffle ticket for a chance to win
The FINE PRINT:
Every game has rules, and this one is no exception. Team week starts on Monday, April 19 at 12:01 a.m. and ends on Friday, April 23 at 11:59 p.m. For Challenge 1 and 2, the winners will be calculated by what they've done before and during team week. For Challenge 3, the winner will be calculated by number of fundraising (cyclist or Super Spokes Crew Member) team member you recruit during Team Week.
Fundraising total will be calculated based on funds received by this date. If you want it to count towards the final total, I would suggest that you donate online or be extra sure that we will receive it before our office closes on Friday (yep, that's 5 p.m.).
The winner has the opportunity to rent the cabin. The cost to rent the cabin for the entire weekend is $750, and that equals a low $20.83 per bed, per night.
Updates will be sent out on Tuesday, April 20 and Thursday, April 22. Also, updates and full information will be posted on our blog at: http://www.bikemsdc.blogspot.com/ (that's HERE). Updates are sent to Captain's ONLY, so make sure you're sharing the information with your team members.
Best of luck to you and your team,
Ashlee & the Bike MS Team
