Durango Devo Chooses to Bypass Getting Any Insurance for 2011

  |   DEVO News & Information

“Its just so darn expensive” Those were the words out of all of our mouths at the last Devo Board meeting, “so we just axed the whole insurance thing.” said Director Sarah. “We figured, Coach Chad looked all 1970’s with those silly big red glasses and the long un-combed hair, and the beard, what modern cyclist has a beard?, anyway, we axed it and are going to pretend its 1970, when there was no insurance for this kind of a program.” said Director Sarah after a very short board meeting. As a result of the new pile of cash, Devo will offer adult programs to begin in summer of 2011!
