Speedygoat Team Fundraiser

The US Team put on a fundraiser team sprint relay on Saturday, named the speedygoat, as the short, speedy cousin happening the day before the Billygoat.  We had a great turnout, and between entries and donations made a substantial amount of money!  Thanks everyone for showing up!

Cristina designed the courses, and Ali set and vet the controls.  Alex was registrar (wait, this is sounding like a ski-o team fundraiser... good thing there's some overlap!), though Janet Tryson did the heavy lifting, since people signed up for the speedygoat when signing up for the Billygoat.  Ed Despard did the results, and wrote the software to be able to run a two-person sprint relay.  Linda and Rick provided all the equipment.  I'm probably missing someone, but thanks all for helping out and for racing!

Ali and Ed "test running" the courses, full-on relay style.
