FTF Loves a Winner!

At FTF, we invest in our communities and we love winning. These two things came together nicely in May!

First, the FTF-sponsored Atascadero Tigers 8U softball team won their division Championship, led by Lena van Enckevort (Jillian’s daughter).


Second, our very own James Enright won the Mount Hamilton Classic Memorial Day Stage Race in the 35+ age bracket while racing for FTF-sponsored Squadra SF p/b Terun. The race consisted of 4 stages over 3 days covering 115 miles and 10,000 vertical feet of climbing.


Cycling News

On May 5th, 20+ friends from FTF, William Duff Architects, and Murray Engineers rode in the Wine Country Century in Santa Rosa. Cyclists completed beautiful 30, 60, and 100-mile routes while taking in some of Sonoma’s finest scenery. Join us next year, including pre-and post-WCC ride events.
