When and Where to Meet for the Ride

Well it's almost here...just a few more days until the 2015 MS150. Wahoo!

Saturday Morning: Meet at the starting line at about 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 27 and take off as a team.  Plan on arriving early and be ready.

Saturday Afternoon: Both riders and rest stop volunteers are invited to meet up at the Team's tent after the ride. Look for the bright yellow bee banners. There's usually several massage tables going to soothe those tired muscles. Get dinner or stop by the free beer garden (remember they card everyone).

Sunday Morning: Everyone starts when they want and we meet along the way at the stops, lunch and the end.

Lookout Mountain Training Ride - Sunday, May 24

It's that time of year again. Our annual Memorial Day Weekend training ride up Lookout Mountain is this Sunday, May 24. Meet at West Woods Elementary School at 16650 W. 72nd Ave. in Arvada. We'll be in the Park's parking lot on the west side of Quaker, south of 72nd.  The ride will begin at 9 a.m. A ride map and directions will be available then. 
We'll have a rest stop at the top of Lookout Mountain, but it would be good to bring your own water, snacks and repair supplies just in case. RSVP to Tim Walker at teamsugarbee@yahoo.com so we can prepare for the rest stop. Hope to see you all this Sunday as we get ready for the big event in June.

Thanks to all of you who made the 4th annual Team Sugarbee Wine Tasting / Silent Auction a big success. On May 17th, nearly 100 people met at Cheryl and Ted Swanson's beautiful home where they proved to be the perfect hosts as usual. The food was delicious, the company was congenial and Debbie Joncas did an amazing job with the silent auction items. Paul Joncas and his band provided the music. Wine selections came from Pringles and beer selections from Grimm Brothers. It was a fabulous afternoon. You BEES are really the BUZZZZ!

Vote for Shjon's MS Website

UPDATE: Thanks to all of you who voted for Shjon's Team Sugar Bee website. Alas, it didn't get the most votes, but we appreciate his dedication to Taking the Sting Out of MS. Be sure to give him an atta boy this summer when you see him on the ride.

One of our own, Shjon Richard, needs our help. His eighth grade class had a project to build websites for non-profit organizations. No surprise, Shjon chose the MS Society and Team Sugarbee since he's part of our hive. The student with the most votes for their webpage will get a donation from the school for their charity. Please help him and the MS Society by voting for his web page. We don't know when the voting ends so...Vote now! Vote often!

Shjon's has already met his minimum for this year's MS150 ride, but he would really like to win this challenge. Thanks for all your help! Go Bees!

What fun we had at the 11th Annual Team Sugar Bee Bowl-a-Thon on February 8, 2015!  All of the people attending were, and are, loyal supporters of TSB.

With all your help the team has raised over $1.3 MILLION for the fight against MS.  We could never have achieved this goal without your help. Your support - physically, emotionally and financially is so important. YOU are the reason we keep on keeping on the fight to take the sting out of MS.

As long as your support continues, we will continue this challenge to find a cure and eradicate Multiple Sclerosis, so all those suffering will know that MS means, "Mystery Solved". Love from and to all who make it possible. We are forever grateful for your support & friendship.
