Thanks for the props! I didn't even know about the magazine until you told me. Which is funny because my good friend Erin wrote the article and I see her almost every day. How is the coffee in the Steel City?

Thanks, for your luck. Volunteers do everything from gathering dishes to getting people who are really busy stuff they need etc. THe company I work for hosted last year and they had plenty for people to do. I'm sure if you contact them they can tell you more.

I'll be competing in the NERBC, it is coming quick, lots of work to do. That's cool that you are going to come watch. You should volunteer if you really want the insiders perspective. You don't need any kind of experience, they will need all kinds of help.

We're sending all rookies this time out - right now only one is confirmed (Lauren) but could be as many as three depending how things work out.
You planning to attend?

Caribou has some kick-ass single origin drip coffee - certainly beats Sbux in that regard. That you're interested in improving your skills speaks well. There are now finally enough good indies in town to allow anyone with the desire to learn how to become a great barista, so if you maintain your interest, something will open up.
