[RC] WEC 2005 in the UAE - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Lucie Hess appalucie@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Is there anyone on the list that is going to the WEC as a "Spectator" ?  I had 
planned to go as a Volunteer, until I heard that the US team was "inviting"  
people to volunteer, and that those who were not invited, could go as "tourists 
or spectators".. I have asked to go with no response..   I'd like to go, but 
don't really want to just "show up" if no one  else is going to.

It really kind of breaks my heart that the team is not having folks come and 
volunteer at this ride.  I've gone to 3 WEC's since 1998 and crewed, worked 
hard  and  had a good time..   I did think I behaved myself..

I think one of the reasons, I find it difficult to not go, is that my husband 
was killed in a auto accident.. not his fault.. in 97 and I decided then that I 
would make it a part of my life, to donate my time and skills to the US team at 
all of the WEC's,from then on.  Not being "invited"  to go and do what I can 
for the team is really hard.

So then I thought, perhaps others are going as spectators, then maybe I'll just 
go go .  So anyone who is going, let me know.  I still have time to buy the 
plane ticket..

Hmm, I wonder where the nearest UAE consulate is? ... gotta get a visa!  Lucie
