Our bicycle ride tomorrow at Port Isabel is canceled.
Cool weather and Texas Week (Spring Break) are two factors that lead to his cancellation.
Our ride is on city streets and Texas Week does
mean increased traffic.
Our next bicycle ride is Laguna Atascosa which is our longest ride.
We'll hope for better weather on the 20th for that ride.

From Marilynn - Site 12
We have many wonderful cooks here at Sandpipers and as part of the Olympic closing ceremonies we will give you the chance to showcase your talent. All you need to do is make your best chili and give it a name.
No restrictions, make it the way you like it.
We have a panel of four distinguished judges that will judge the entries and pick the best of the best.
All participants will be recognized and the winners announced at the Olympic closing ceremonies on March 28.
Karen has generously donated prize money for first, second, and third place and Buddy and I will donate a gift to all entries.
I will need your entry information
no later than Friday, March 16.
Give me your name, site number, and the name of your chili.
You can text/call me at 817-874-3723, e-mail email@example.com, or just come see me at site 12.
Once I have all the entries we will get together
and talk about the judging process.
Once the judges have done their thing, remaining chili will be served at the super happy hour
following the closing ceremony.
Karen had a great idea about how to taste all the chili.
Bring yourself a small, six space muffin tin.
We hear they are available at the dollar store.
This is going to be a lot of fun and the more participation the better. I look forward to hearing from you so step on up there.

I am canceling the bicycle ride scheduled for today, March 6.
We have rain showers moving into the area. These will be increasing through the bicycle ride time.
March 13 is our scheduled make-up day for this ride.
We'll hope for better weather then.

The weather forecast for our bicycle ride at Port Isabel on Tuesday does not look good. They are expecting numerous thunderstorms overnight tonight with additional storms and rain showers during the day Tuesday, chance of precipitation is 70% tonight and 60% tomorrow.
We'll re-evaluate the weather in the morning but the chances of us going to Port Isabel on Tuesday look pretty slim.
