So this was the deal..the team that could get their friends, relatives, team members, home town organizations, co-

We will continue to try to find the used ones, and, in the meantime, our good friend Bill Croker has been successful in his program of finding, and making available, used Timewise speedos. If in need, also try Bill for a speedo at firstname.lastname@example.org . He is the guy that initiated the “Rookie Mentor” program, so you can believe what he tells you!!

VCRA GOT TO MEET… one of the recipients of a recent donation when we arrived in Newnan, GA during the Greatrace. It was great to finally meet, in person, Mary Ulich, Director of Operations, of the Lionheart School in Alpharretta, GA. VCRA donated $25,000 to the school in 2015 to enhance their programs. It was great to actually visit with the folks, and hear how we were able to impact their program. And it is all possible because of the generosity of the folks in the old car rally family. Thanks!!!
