Ron passed away Sunday 6/20/2010 Fathers Day. His son Craig was living with him and they took care of each other. He was still working as a freelance writer and his main last opus was a screenplay about Mark Twain. He always read about and researched Twain. He was a good friend of mine and I could count on popping in on him at any time. Come with a story on Tuesday if you can make it. James

Ron and I had many talks about Mark Twain material at the Detroit Public Library. It was always a pleasure. He had wonderful insights and wit. R.I.P.

I saw Ron at a lot of music concerts I went to in the time I lived in Detroit in the middle 80s. Ron was a wonderful person. R.I.P.

Ron was my favorite rascal, backgammon partner and revolution planner. I visited him last Christmas, as I did anytime that I was in Detroit. Ron's stories were fucking hilarious even as his health failed his humor prevailed!! I need a photo of Ron to hang next to Tim Knoll's...anyone have an extra they would spare? I loved Ron dearly...he was the Corridor's true Italian gentleman. My most important memory of Ron is that he did not hold hatred toward anyone. His heart was all about love...I am hoping to play backgammon with him on the astral plane. Peace Condroni.

Didn't hear about Ron's passing! Where on earth is his son? I know Ron always worried about him.

All of Ron's children were at the memorial.

Scr = Scratch, or a handicap of 0:00. The Scratch rider is the ftasest on past form. The handicapper then assigns a h/c to the other riders based on how far they are expected to finish behind the scratch person. This is based on a rider's best ride in the last 3 years, knowledge of a rider's form and/or a conservative guess (in that order). The handicap is then subtracted from your actual time to give your h/c time. So you, Sooz, as a newbie, were expected to finish 8 and a half minutes behind Peter (conservative guess as it's your first event). This is subtracted from your actual 35:19 to give you a h/c time of 26:49. Your next h/c will be based on your new personal best. Well ridden by the way.

The club did have a rule once No time no handicap. However I felt it made it more ntseretniig for new riders if I gave them one based on half the maximum plus 2 minutes for the gents and 3 minutes for the ladies.Handicaps for the 25 will be on actual times ridden in the last 3 years or if no time I will calculte it on recent 10 times. Don't forget that I have access to previous rides so no porky pies Gladys
