Whirlwind Weekend for VK

Friday night had the Vanderkittens getting together to celebrate our Ali Cat’s 39th birthday. As the evening went on some of the younger felines felt the need to go and show off their talent at throwing darts at another local establishment while the senior felines headed for bed. On Saturday Donna celebrated her birthday and the weather gods let the sun shine long enough so that we could ride some miles to loosen up our legs for the state age graded time trial on Sunday! Today 8 of the VK girls arrived at the time trial to race while Ali and Linda came to support our team. As expected, our Cheetah, Captain Cook, won again by 2 minutes. I was happy to finish as the 3rd fastest women and claim the title as first master’s women finisher. As the season comes to a close with time trials, many of our girls are sad because they were just getting the hang of how bad you are supposed to feel when you have given it your all in a time trial. Tonight we ended our weekend with a fundraiser for the Team Kainer Foundation along with an auction for our team. We had great attendance at the 501 Grill and had a great response to the many items donated for our auction. Thanks to all those who came out to support us and the Team Kainer Foundation and thanks to 501 Grill for hosting the event.

Next stop for some of the VK cats will be the Page Valley Road Race.
