    I'm announcing BRT 11 on Milepoint. It's going to be either the first or second Saturday in June. I have to wait a few weeks until my schedule is updated. I'll post the details in due time.

    This announcement is posted exclusively (for now) on milepoint.

    Randy, consider this a scoop. [​IMG]

    Scoop it is then. And to return the favor, I hereby commit getting on the bus and as a bonus, let's make this a Ride For the Cure. For every member that rides along on this, i will donate $10 per member into the general fund of MilePoint Cares and earmark it for donation to the Susan G. Koman Foundation.

    Deal?

    Oh my! I've been on so many of dhammer's Brooklyn Reality Tours that Brooklyn feels like my second home. They're always great fun, but I was going to skip this year until Randy upped the ante. Can we get the bus painted with a pink ribbon like the AA Planes for the Cure?

    As a new to Brooklyn resident (Crown Heights), I'd love to be a part of the MP BRT!

    Looks like its time to get a bigger bus with Randy's generous offer.

    Thanks for the heads up!! We will be there. My wife is a survivor and advocate-Randy you should talk to her - she is active with Komen right now.

    Due to a scheduling conflict, I have to opt out of BRT '11, which we all know will be the last BRT, right dhammer? [​IMG]

    With regrets, we are going to miss the BRT this year, but after Dan announced that BRT 10 was the last, it's good to see that both Dan & RP are starting over. :)

    No, I think he's on the hook for 11-20 now. :D

    I was telling my wife a few weeks ago that BRT 11 would go back to the 25 passenger van of yesteryear. The bus is nice, but the tour wasn't as intimate. Randy announced upthread that he's making a donation of $10 per person for every attendee. I don't know about you, but I'm not going to disappoint The Boss. I want him to make a big donation. [​IMG]

    Looks like BRT 11 will once again have a 50 passenger bus. I'll post this here first. You can sign up when the thread goes live.

    The BRT is always looking for sponsorship. If anyone 'in the know' on Milepoint has contacts with hotels/airlines/credit card companies/print people, they can get all the shameless plugs they want... at minimum cost.

    For example, the logo BRT cap runs ~$10 per x 50 people. Lunch at ~$26 per person. Our now famous pizza dinner is under $10 each. And the bakery stop can be had for a song. Interested parties can contact me. Wouldn't a bus sponsorship be nice? Contact me for the details.

    I was going to pass with a 25 passenger bus, but maybe you'll get me back with 50 if it doesn't conflict with my return from Australia in early June. For the undecided (photos from 2010) MORE HERE

    But who in their right mind would walk into Teena's and not emerge with a box full of goodies? No......gotta budget at least $10 for the bakery stop.

    With this crowd already committed, I'll definitely be in if I'm anywhere near the east coast on the chosen weekend. Too good a party to pass up.

    I'll try to be in NY on the day. If there's room on the bus,
    I'd like to be on it. If not, I'm perfectly content taking
    public trans and meeting people at the food stops.
