    I'm trying to organize Lyndon to come give a slideshow of his Dakar experience (9th in stage 8!) and looking for interest. He's a great orator and I'm positive this will be a night to remember.

    EDIT: Here are the final details:

    Date: April 3, 2013 Starts at 7:00 PM

    Location: Performance Cycle, 1990 S Broadway Denver, CO 80210

    Price: $20- Please purchase in advance so we know how many people are coming!

    To purchase, ask for Nichole @ 303-744-2011, she can take a credit card over the phone (or stop by).

    </ EDIT

    To make the tickets work (he's coming from the UK after all), we have to charge something for the experience. The initial discussion was $25, or maybe $20 ahead and $30 at the door to incentivize people to commit? He mentioned doing a raffle of some of the great swag he's got- Kriega backpacks, Klim Inferno jackets, etc.

    Who's interested? We can sort out specifics once we have a better idea of what would work for people who want to attend.

    I'm hoping to make this work. I'll burn off some rental car and hotel points.
    $30 works for me.

    If it's in Denver I'll offer up airport transportation and a couch or floor space to anyone who wants it.

    In, even if I'm not in town, i'm sure somebody will record it like yours Ned @ the Hogan.
    Either way, put me down for a ticket or two.
    Thanks,
