B2V 2014 T-Shirt Order Info

Good afternoon Team 1790,

We have a short turnaround for this…

ALL ORDERS ARE DUE NEXT THURSDAY, 06 MAR 2014!

As most of you know, Petty Officer Travis Obendorf passed away on 18 DEC 2013 from injuries he sustained while engaged in a Search & Rescue mission in the Bering Sea, 30 miles north of Amak Island, Alaska.

This year, Team 1790 is running in honor of PO Obendorf.   You will notice that the PO Obendorf logo that we have all become familiar with in the last couple of months will be on our Team's Runner Bibs, and Follow Vehicle.  Every single baton that is used in the Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay race will also have PO Obendorf's name on it!

In addition to all of this, PO Obendorf will also be honored during the B2V Awards Ceremony.

For those that are new to the team, it is a tradition that teams wear their team gear to the B2V Award Ceremony on Sunday night to represent their agencies.  Every year, someone from our team designs the Team 1790 T-Shirt.  The Team 1790 T-Shirt is worn Sunday evening to the B2V Award Ceremony.  This is where we take our team picture.

  
The Team 1790 Runner Shirts are meant to do the exact same thing, show our agency pride, but on the race course.

Below are brief descriptions of this years team t-shirt and runner shirts.

2014 TEAM 1790 T-SHIRT - $15
Blue cotton t-shirt with Team 1790 logo on left chest, BM3 Travis Obendorf 7-color logo on the back.

2014 RUNNER SHIRT, Moisture Wicking - $17

B2V 2014 Update Feb 21

Good evening Team 1790!

I hope this email finds you well!  Baker to Vegas (B2V) 2014 is just a few weeks away.  By now you should have your secured your hotel rooms, figured out how you intend to get yourself to Vegas (and back), and have been preparing for B2V 2014.

I tried to break up the info below by who it most applies to, but it is good info for All-Hands.

All-Hands:
Our official B2V 2014 team number is 37.
Read the Rule Book!   http://bakervegas.com/rulebook

Runners:
Read the rule book!  You are in direct control over how well we do in this race!  It is very easy to wear something that is not authorized, forget to bring your ID, not have your Runners Bib in the proper place, etc.  All of these simple infractions will get the team penalized.  Each infraction has a time penalty that is added to the Team's overall time.  Teams have lost out on getting a mug due to penalties! http://bakervegas.com/rulebook

ALL RUNNERS (Primary AND Alternate) need to email JOSH a signed copy of the Waiver & Release form by 24 FEB 2014.  Please email the forms to Josue.A.Mendez@Team1790.us

If you paid for fundraiser t-shirts, they are available for pick up at the Base LA-LB Command Building.  Please contact CIV Bert Orozco to arrange for pick-up.

Any runner that starts their leg after 1800 hrs, is required to run with a flashing vest.  WE WILL PROVIDE THIS VEST.  If this applies to you, make sure you are including this added weight / bulk in your training plan.

Keep an eye on the weather.  Stay hydrated.
 
Team Volunteers:
Do I have your most up to date contact info?  I sent an email to those that stated they had interest in volunteering for Team 1790.  Only 5 people followed up with the information that was requested!

The same goes for the volunteers, Read the rule book!  http://bakervegas.com/rulebook
You guys are the ones that are driving on the race course.  All of the local law enforcement agencies have been given special "ticket books" to issue penalties to B2V motorist that are caught breaking the law.  This is in addition to any tickets that they would normally issue for speeding, DUI, etc.

Take a moment and download the two Stage Maps of Stage 16. The Catcher at Stage 16 will NOT be able to move to Stage 17 in time to catch the runner.   Space for parking is limited.


Follow Vehicle Crews:
The Race Committee has requested that ALL Follow Vehicle Crews watch this video: http://youtu.be/86da-EWwQ5Y
Also, please review the rule book.  There have been a few changes to the rules this year.
http://bakervegas.com/rulebook

Please email us if you have ANY questions!  We want you to be as prepared as possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
 
Respectfully,
 
Mike & Josh
