Web site facelifts!

In between the shows, the ride and the upcoming Dinner of Champions event hosted by the National MS Society, we’ve been busy changing some of the look and feel of the main web site to accommodate all of the photos and video that’s available from the past two years.

To put it in perspective, this September’s show has over 1,000 photos that I am aware of.  Photographers like Mick Murray, Crystal Bailey, Steve Latham, Johnny Anguish and Mike Oliver make up a great many of that 1,000.  Many of the photos will be showcased on the front page on the main site soon.   Here’s a great photo of Chris Toppin by Steve Latham, for instance:Chris Toppin by Steven Latham


Thanks again to everyone involved, and have a great new year!!!

Maybe Sump’ms Updates 1


While it sounds like Boston will blow away by midnight, I just wanted to catch up quickly.

Currently, the Maybe Sump’ms have raised over $18,000 for the National MS Society!  This is our best year yet!  THANK YOU for being a huge part of that!
That said, we’re still taking donations through 11/16.  Feeling like adding a little more to the pot?

Four members of the team are in this year’s top 200 fundraisers.  The team is in the top 10 for family/friends teams, and it looks like the same can be said for the corporate teams as well.  

This is awesome! Thank you again for supporting our ragtag team of rockers, family and friends!

Gearing up for Sunday!

Sunday is the bikeMS ride!

This is where the Maybe Sump’ms (and all the Crash Safely folks) are going to be recognized for all of their hard work.  For some, this is where the challenge really lies; they’re biking 30, 50 or 100 miles.  For the virtual riders, we get to decorate the team village area and scope out where the best freebies are located.

Photos from both nights of Crash Safely will be decorating the Maybe Sump’ms Team Village area, as well as a copy of the poster and the random 20 yuan that was donated.

Many thanks to Johnny Anguish, Crystal Bailey, Mick Murray, Mike Oliver and all of the other photographers who came out and took so many amazing pictures of the nights! I’m looking forward to the odd looks from the more <ahem> traditional teams when I put up some photos of the Upper Crust.

Now then, off to prep for a whirlwind weekend!


Want to relive Crash Safely?

Mick Murray got some great videos both nights!

Here’s some video from Friday, with more to come!
