    Cheq 40: Shot or no shot?

    When you get to the pirates, are you going to do the shot? I didn't last year, but I'm looking forward to it this year.

    Oh hell no. I took one last year, thinking in my maxed out delirium that it was energy drink. About puked it back up, but I kept it down.

    I did one in 2009. Seemed to help...for a while.

    We dispensed over 400 shots this year on Pirate Hill and we could have served more if we hadn't run out of cups!

    This year, a burly mix of Captain Morgan and Kahlua I'm told.

    Shot

    Shot.

    I was wearing a Jolly Roger jersey, so I felt an obligation. Also, at that point my legs weren't feeling so good, so I figured it couldn't hurt.

    Shot.

    I was already behind my 2009 time because I started at position 1800 or so. They handed me the pitcher...that was good stuff. They said singlespeed gets double. Yes!

    A big thanks to all the indulgent racers this year. The pirates had fun. We will be back next year with more cups, more dirty pirates and more canon blasts!

    Wait a tick -- I was on an SS and only got one shot. Does that mean next year I get three shots? Arghhhh.

    How far from the finish is pirate hill?

    Sorry about this but with the mention of pirates I could'nt pass up the opportunity to share.

    A guy walks into a bar dressed up like a pirate with a big wooden steering wheel protruding out of the front of his pants. The bartender looks at him and asks "whats with the steering wheel"? In his best pirate voice the man answers "Argghhh, Its driving me nuts".

    The pirate manning the cannon was already reloading that thing the second he fired a shot. I had a good laugh but missed out on the shot, should have payed more attention to the signage.

    I've done the "Cheqamegon 40" 5 or 6 times and have not heard of Pirate hill.
