Thank you 2012 volunteers!


Since when did “Volunteering” become a “Competitive Endurance Sport”? At many other events you have to beg people to show up, and when they do, it’s often half-hearted. Not The TTTT Volunteers. These folks want to be there, they want to help, they turn themselves inside out doing all they can do to make the event better for their fellow riders, and they push themselves. It’s a Volunteer endurance time trial of their own.

FWBA Volunteers were joined by Lone Star Randonneur Volunteers, members of the Tri-Junkies Triathlon Club and even some non-bike riding volunteers. We now have children of volunteers who are volunteering. Aspen Gregg, daughter of Darrell and Ann Greg, stayed up way past her bedtime to hula hoop for the enjoyment of the passing racers after dark while stationed mid-course at her R.V. We even had one former racer fly in from Alaska to Volunteer.

It really helps to have the same Volunteers come back every year; they already know the ropes. Susan Pogue helped setup over 250 TTTT Trophies for the Awards Bash. Bea Schindler worked the entire race doing everything. Stephanie Harnden can’t boil water but brought dinner out to all the volunteers. Lovely Linda Middleton worked some real magic with her camera.

I vote Diane Laughlin as our TTTT Rookie Volunteer of the year, she was incredible.

Every year before we even pick a date, we ask several “Key People” if they are “In”. One of those is Kalleen, who walks on Volunteer water, and we’d not want to do it without her.

It warms my heart to see so many people working so hard together to make something much bigger than any of us could alone.

TTTT Volunteers are world renowned. Our racers from England, Canada and most of the states now know what we have already known; Texas has super hospitality.

Thank you all, thank you very much, DanD
