Saturday is the 39th Annual Florida Trail Riders Awards Banquet at the Hilton hotel in the Walt Disney World Resort! I’m excited to attend for many reasons: I have some business to attend to; the hotel, right across from Downtown Disney, has 814 guest rooms, 74,000 square feet of banquet space and two outdoor heated swimming pools. I just hope those heaters are turned off.
I have not been to the FTR banquet in years, since winning my championship in 2001. Nine years! It seems like just yesterday I was battling for the Enduro Women’s championship. I took second in the Harescramble series that year, too. It was a busy time with a race almost every weekend. My dad and I spent as much driving as we did racing. That’s for sure! Now, I’m looking forward to seeing all my old friends from FTR and meeting some new ones.
From the FTR forum: “This will be a great time to size up your competition and get them psyched out before the first event lol. So I expect everyone to be there with their party face on and ready to…..Party!!!!!”
