  • Finding Campsites
    • Jared will have all campsites per-arranged prior to RAGBRAI beginning.  Maps of the overnight host towns and how to ride to where we are camping will be given out each morning of the ride.
  • Paying for Group Stuff During Ragbrai
    • An idea was floated about pulling money and getting a pre-paid debit card before RAGBAI begins.   This card could be used by the driver for
      • Gas
      • Beer
      • Ice
      • Snacks and incidentals
    • Idea was generally likes.   This will probably be our go forward strategy.  Money will be collected probably in the month leading up to Ragbrai for this.
