Hi there and happy Friday.  I'm very interested in participating in the block island event.  Will the Saturday exploring of block island be on bike?  I'm solo so I'm a little concerned about not having a "buddy" for the weekend.

Hi Martin, yes you are confirmed. But there's another queen room available. The email you received is just an alert that there's a new comment on the ride page. See the comment chain for context.

Hi All,  I just registered but its actually myself and my husband so does he have to register separately? And how do I select the room?

Hi Evan, thanks for registering. Yes, your husband will need to register separately and we'll reserve the queen room for you two. Thanks!

Thanks for the pre call last night.   We decided we around reserve our ferry rides individually.   9.30 to BI 4.30 return?   Is someone sending a link or do we just go to the Jerry site directly?

August 25, 2022


We decided that we would figure all that out when we're together tomorrow since there's no real urgency. See you then!

Sorry for the confusion.  I must have jumped off early.  I ended up buying ferret tix for the 9.30 departure and 4.45 return.  I'll assume it all works out.   Have a great day.  See you all tomorrow.   Have a great day.  Marty
