Capital City Challenge

Thanks for registering us, Ricky.

It says here that the weigh-ins are from 8-11 tomorrow and the matches start at noon. It's at Ultimate Fitness. 1705 I Street, Sacramento.

Here's a map.

I'll probably swing by the gym tonight to see what the deal is tomorrow, but are we planning on riding up together? I can drive.

Capital City Challenge


It's decided that I will pay for everyone. Please bring in $50 tonight, and I'll make a list for your name, DOB, and hometown.

You will not get signed up if you do not pay me first.



I got an email back from the webmaster on, telling me that each person can sign up and pay individually. However, I tried to figure out how that would work on the website, but I couldn't do it. I was hoping maybe Jim or somebody else would have a better chance of figuring it out. If not, then I will go with the original plan, which was signing up anybody who would want to participate, collecting the money tomorrow (on Weds. 5/7). Just in case nobody can figure it out, please email me your first and last name, your hometown, and your date of birth. I will register everybody tomorrow or Thurs., and pay on Thurs.

My email is, and the cost to participate is $50.
