A couple of things, if you’ve a moment ~
… received this from Dave Parrish. I’m going to try and make the Thursday service.
just wanted to let you know we’ve set the date and time for Matt Peterson’s memorial service, as well as for a memorial bike ride in Matt & Kristy Gough’s honor. It would mean a lot if you could attend these special events.
Matt Peterson memorial service Thursday, March 13, 7:00 pm Sports Basement 1590 Bryant Street, San Francisco
Matt Peterson & Kristy Gough memorial ride Saturday, March 15, 2:30 pm Foothill College 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills More details: http://rememberingmatt.blogspot.com
Please pass the word along.
As a lot of you will know, Christopher is the surviving rider from Sunday’s tragedies. Christopher’s parents are flying from Germany to be with him as he recovers, but in the meantime ~ one of our own could use some love from the community.
Christopher is an intern at BMW San Francisco. A fellow cyclist and a manager at BMW, Regan Clark, will be able to collect any tokens of support we all might want to send Christopher’s way in this time of need.
Are you with me, folks?
Regan will be able to collect gifts or tokens until this Friday at the BMW San Francisco location (1675 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA 94103). A few team signed jerseys just might be what the doctor ordered. Or maybe a handwritten note? Or how about a picture of you and your team, signed in support?
Please don’t mail anything to BMW at this time as they receive hundreds of parts daily through the mail. Instead, please try and coordinate to deliver the items to the BMW shop, care of Regan Clark, if you can.
And for any down at the NRC Visalia and Exeter races this weekend, I will be there and able to collect any and all tokens of support for Christopher. I’ll coordinate with Regan to get the items to his host family later next week.
I’ll be recording Blog-erviews of Support this weekend as well. So any of you fine folks down there this weekend, please spare a moment and I’ll record your well-wishes to all involved -
the families and friends who remember Matt and Kristy,
Christopher as he recovers,
Daniel and Gephart and Dmitry and all those who stepped in and tried to save Kristy and tended to Christopher and mourned Matt.
i am stunned into silence at what those folks must have gone through that morning.
to all of you, the best wishes.
So, if you’ve a moment – please think about getting your team together and sending Christopher a token of support. Something from you. He’d appreciate it – he’s in a foreign land and survived, thankfully survived, a dark day.
and if you’re willing to say a few words into the camera this weekend, I’ll edit and post them all together in memory and hope for all involved. And please feel free to send me an .mpg, .mov, .wmv, or even an audio .mp3 file under 9 megs to pedalhome (at) hotmail.com and i’ll put them in, as well. I’ll incorporate them all – please get them to me by this Saturday evening.
