BEN HURT II Chariot Wars - Feb 16th, Portland OR

BEN HURT II Chariot Wars
http://www.zoobomb.net/minibikewinter (up soon I swear)



Watch the video for ****sake!

BEN HURT II Chariot Wars be a post-apocalyptic battle for life and limb.
YAR! It be a true test of might and stoopidity. Can you ride a little girl's bike and get hit the most hardest by a padded mace? Or would you rather cheat, (cheating is allowed) and use chicken-**** bombs made from real chicken-**** like the chicken-**** you are?! Or maybe just show up in your underwear and win anyway because you are badass? Hey, it happened last year...

There will be a multitude of chariot tests, from speed to steed, gladiator to flatulator, chugger to bugger, flailing to wailing, and dying. Yes dying, and after that, drinking. Okay, fine, during too.

Either way, prepare yourselves for this year's minibikewinter, February 14th-18th. Events include: stencil & craft night, lightbar, badass challenge, gravity bike race, freakbike race, chariot speed races, chariot fashion show, chariot chugging, chariot deth match, alleykitten, partaaaying, rollo, derby, whiplash, jousting, cupcake challenge, tour de bomb, and much, much more!

Too bad it couldn't coincide with the NAHBS. I'd love to at least show up (well, if I had time ).

Not enough vacation time, unfortunately. I'm shifting to different days off (Wednesday/Thurday) after the 5th of January, so I'd have to ask for two weekends off in a row AND I'm already going down to California in March for the Cinderella ride.

But if you're going to be at the Lucky Lab for the anticipated get together (not firm on date or time yet), that would be cool . A bunch of the C & V forum people will be there...

It'll be more than C&V people, for sure. Folks in SSFG are going to try to make it, too.

Capn - it's going to be at the SE Lucky Lab, so you know there will be plenty of space for multiple forums.

The show's on Saturday and Sunday. I think the idea is to try and get together perhaps on Friday? Or, could just be a 'we'll meet here at x time on Friday and Saturday to see who shows up'.

Whatever, I'm going!
