JAN. 4, 2011, UPDATE: We just made a donation of $70 to World Bike Relief using proceeds from the book. Thanks for your support! Now that we're in the black, $10 from all future purchases will go directly to WBR to support its great work.
MARCH 20 UPDATE: We had a ball hanging out at the Pony Shop today, distributing books and seeing everyone for the first time since Montrose Harbor. (We also awarded Dave Dokko his special bacon hand-up.)
If you pre-ordered a book but couldn't make it, your order is waiting for you at the Pony Shop.
If you didn't get in on the pre-order, you can purchase directly from Blurb and have your order shipped to you. (Until March 22 you can use the coupon code NEXTSHIP for free shipping.)
MARCH 5 UPDATE: Books are on the way! We'll be hanging out at the Pony Shop on aturday, March 20 from 2-4 p.m. Swing by, say hello and pick up your books. If you can't make it, they'll continue to be at Pony Shop, 1224 Chicago Ave., Evanston.
FEB. 26 UPDATE: Today we received our first proof of the book. It looks fantastic. We're going to make a few tweaks and then make a larger order. So we're looking at a mid-March delivery. Thanks for your patience, and we'll let you know as soon as the books are ready.
Thank you for pre-ordering your 2009 Chicago Cyclocross Cup photo book!
The book is coming together very, very well, if we do say so ourselves. We're insisting on the highest quality possible, so we still have some work to do -- color-correcting all the photos, double-checking all the editing, getting a proof back from the printer -- and we're looking at a late-February receipt. If you purchased a book, we will e-mail you as soon as it is ready for pick-up.
In the meantime, congratulations to Dave Dokko, who won the random drawing for two pounds of premium bacon. We'll be making a trip to Paulina Meat Market on your behalf, Dave.
If you did not get in on the pre-order, you will be able to purchase books directly from our printer once we have completed the editing. Stay tuned for a link.
Thanks for a great season!
Liz, Luke and Chip
