I think I might actually make it out for this! I may have to work while I'm there, at least for a few hours so I can talk the wife into letting me go, but I've got nothing else going on!

kemmer - you really should log on to the ZooBomb website and talk some sh*t about how y'all are gonna kick some ZooBomb ass during MBW. All the Canadians do it. We love it when out of towners talk smack to us about their mad ZooBombing skilz!

haha, I never got around to it, but I'll let my bombing do the talking. I only wish I could bring my mini, then you guys would be in serious trouble. I am bringing a bike with 16" wheels but it's a folder.

I think randya and donnamb would tell you that that is indeed the case.

I was part of the audience (along with Mrs. tfahrner) and the donator of the air horn use. Kemmer, however, was a ninja. The ninjas won.

I corked a corner for the races last night. I saw some serious skate action (30 skaters entered), and all three 12" bikes running hard neck and neck. The gravity bikes are a special treat. a few skaters and a few folks on the family bomb crashed, including myself at the end of the evening, I tacoed a wheel but luckily found someone to give me a ride home. I think we had over 200 people. Scott successfully defended his badass title and Billy won the skate race.

I was out again today at the chariot event.

I'm letting someone else take pictures, Jonathan Maus of BikePortland was there today, so the chariot events should be well documented.

woo hoo! Another successful minibike winter! Tony Pereira won the freak bike class race last night and Vancouver's Lyledriver took home the TourdeBomb trophy in the regulation 16" ZooBomb class race. I didn't hear who won the open class race. BF's own Kemmer took home a first prize medal in the foot down derby and represented SLC in the CupCake Challenge at the Olympics. a good time was had by all! The party was still going on at Legohouse when I left at about 12:30 AM last night.

Thank you so much for filming, Dan. (I was the woman with the air horn at the Capture the Flag on Friday.) I had been fighting off a cold/bronchitis since before NAHBS. Being part of the adoring audience on Friday and Zoobombing that night really set it off. Ah, well, at least I got to meet Kemmer.
