Hey guys...
  I'm trying to put a frappr map together to show everyones location.  If you've never seen one, it's a map showing push pins for loctions of members. You can include pictures of your ride for everyone to see! Someone else had done this for the Urs4 list and it's kind of cool so I thought I'd give it a shot for the UPG2008.  I "think" I have it setup correctly but I can't seem to get the frappr page to send mail to our distribution email sooo.......
  Here's the link.  http://www.frappr.com/upg2008
  If you want to add y'ur self to the map, click it and follow the directions...

OK- wanting to help UPG some traction, I have read most of the posts and 
tried to filter most of the input relating to majority preferences and desires. 
Following is my input and opinions, hopefully well thought-out, and very 
intentional regarding objectivity, and making every attempt to be impartial. 
The important components for most responders seem to be: 
1) Race track 
2) Scenic and challenging day trip/road trip availability 
3) Coordinating event (i.e. professional race series or other major 
4) Attractions/Amenities/Infrastructure 
5) West Coast accessibility 
6) East Coast accessibility 
My main interest, which I think is shared by everyone, is to gather as many 
URQs as possible. A recurring annual event would be fantastic! 
I believe that trying to gather from both coasts with a central location to 
both will achieve neither. While the suggestions of Kansas City & Omaha are 
very central and would be on my “go” list (1 day trip), I think we would not 
get much attendance from either coast. The recent Park City Utah event saw 
only 10 cars, most of which were from Colorado. Planning an event 800 miles 
farther East (i.e. K.C.) and I feel the participation will be even less. I have 
also not to date seen much East coast interest. Any interest in K.C from 
eastern listers? 
After much map searching and numerical evaluation, Colorado Springs meets 
the top 4 of the above components with an “A” rating, and #5 with a B or C 
(admittedly F on 6). 
The general consensus, which I share is, seems to be that the travel limit 
is a “one day one way” distance. While Colorado Springs is not a day trip 
from the West coast, K.C is not a day trip from either coast. 
Another point to consider is that there are by conservative estimates, 
approximately 25+ URQs in the Colorado front-range area. 
I’m willing to compromise and contribute whatever resources of time and 
effort I can to bring this to fruition. 
Have URQ – will travel (1 day one way)
