I'm not a member, but I do take part in your Grand Tour and I would like to suggest that you start the 2012 Grand Tour before the 2012 Moonshine Lunch Run which is on Saturday, April 14th, 2012. Moonshine has been the official kickoff of my riding season for the past few years and perhaps a few others riders as well, and it is an added bonus to be able to chase Grand Tour destinations while in route to and from Moonshine. If the Grand Tour starts as the message board suggests on April 15th, it will miss the biggest part of the Moonshine weekend. Perhaps starting it one week earlier would be acceptable.
I also sent this same message to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
