CR and Noon-er.  I can vouch for your take on this CR, having been in on three different RAGBRAI overnight town committees over the years here in Fort Dodge…as Fort Dodge’s Ride Right coordinator.  Noon-er, the ride could not exist as it is if it were not for the DMR’s RAGBRAI coordinator and staff, the DM Register itself and for the countless volunteer hours of the overnight town committees and for the assistance of the Iowa Highway Patrol and the medical emergency teams plus many other groups of people who are behind the scenes of such a large undertaking.  From my post-meetings with the Register’s RAG staff  I know that the excess funds from our many thousands of dollars in registration fees is given back to the overnight towns and to various charity organizations in the state of Iowa.  I believe that any other dollars are earned by the DM Register in sales of their newspaper coverage of RAGBRAI are probably used by the Register for their own purpose…and that is as it should be for all of their involvement in this fine event.  Cheers.
