  1. Good idea having this one stop BOB page. On the site, to use the “search for a race box” what is the title for our race? I tried searching under several titles and was unable to find ours. Thanks!

    1. It will be under the title BOB 2014. However it is not at robust as we hoped. We have opened that one yet because only a couple of bugs have moved at this point. We are excited to be able to make reports here but it seems it’s going to be a slow start. We think once it gets kicked up it should be a lot of fun.
