Roger Kramer: Public speaker

If you've visited the Evanston (Ill.) Bicycle Club's Web site lately, you may have noticed that I am the speaker at the club's March 20 meeting. I'm supposed to speak about my role in creating the Tour de Donut, the spoof of the Tour de France held each July in Staunton, Ill.

"For true EBCers this is a 'don't miss' meeting about the glory of donuts and bicycling!" the club promises. I certainly hope my talk lives up to the hype.

Fortunately, I don' t have to do all the talking. My presentation also includes a screening of "Tour de Donut: Gluttons for Punishment," the documentary film produced by Steve Kelly and Jim Klenn.

The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Ladd Arboretum at McCormick and Bridge streets in Evanston, a northern suburb of Chicago and home of Northwestern University and my older sister, Teresa Parod.

Teresa is indirectly responsible for the invitation to speak to the club. She is not a member, but she gave a copy of the movie to a friend of hers who then showed it to members of the club.

Speaking of the film, it's still available online at tourdedonutmovie.com. The cost of the DVD is $18, including postage and handling.

Hey Roger,
Do you draw a salary as our publicist? If so, let us know where the money's coming from. Ha!
