a Rafflecopter giveaway

Our last Rafflecopter giveaway winner was my athletic Dad and/or Mom, they will have to rock, paper, scissors to decide who wins the free entry. He is a real Michigan State University Spartans graduate who lives in one of America’s finest cities, Bend, Oregon, driving a bus for river rafting and ski resort companies while being an avid biker, Nordic skier and loving Grandfather. My Ultra Sports Techie Mom, aka Grandma, is a top REI employee who last week climbed to the top of a local mountain top in the summer heat that simply does not faze her Ecuadorian blood. I say a Sprint race for both is in order.
