I have one in mind, but the idea is to end it at an actual game. So, I need to see if I can get the pillagers into the game for free somehow.

- then, Margarita Relay like a few days later.
i.e. Recruitment Ride 5/9 and Margarita Relay 5/11 or something like that??
Brilliant!

Hey if you decide to do something, you can count me in if you like. I have season tickets too, but I usually stand in the Barra, though dont mind spending a match elsewhere in the stadium from time to time.

Sounds like it would be loads of fun!

That's right...I'm qouting myself...moving on

I think I need to gauge some interest in this ride idea I had so excuse me while I drop some elaboration:

DC Street Pirates
Soccer Pitch Pilage
1:00 pm Saturday June 3, 2006
Featuring stops at:

Summers (Courthouse)
Lucky Bar (Dupont Circle)
The Pour House (Capitol Hill)
The Lot 8 Tailgates (RFK Stadium)

Stay for the game and stand with La Barra Brava and The Screaming Eagles
and watch DC United dismantle the Columbus Crew.

What I need to know is A) Is that date good for everyone B) How many people are down for this and C) How many people, besides Josh, Trek, and myself actually want to see the game itself

EDIT 12:04 PM: PM me with your answers since there are more eminant rides.

A. Sounds good.
B. I'm going anyway (I can get in with my regular ticket, but I'm happy to migrate elsewhere in the stadium...).

We all laugh at a yellow soccer team, a yellow soccer team, a yellow soccer team...

Goading usually works with me but, alas, if only it was a different weekend. I've already been goaded into Mother's Day festivities. Sorry! Be safe!

I'll prolly be out of town by June 3rd,so no United for me. Would've come out Sat(did the comics pillage kick off?),but was laid out with a sore throat.

I'm down for a ride tonight. Can't skip out of work early,so I'll be a little late from running home to swap bikes.

Still got the knickers and batts,no takers yet.

cardozo

re: track racing
we'll do Cardozo Track Hot Nights once a month, unless people really want to do them more, a lot of you have expressed how boring it is or dont even show up; its probably more fun when there are a lot of people like when the Richmond kids and others came to visit.

more miles and pillaging, got any ideas? speak up and plan some rides; and show up to your planned rides.

One of life's great decisions:

Or

The Orphans bar was made by a guy on the Warriors Movie Site forum called Kartoon. I only slightly modified it.

PIRATES!
Let's get our ****ing **** together.
We're in a sad, sad state.

REALLY ****ing SAD!

I hereby summon my powers as Lt-fr-Lf and decree:
THURSDAY - 7pm - sherwood - Rummy Recruity Ridey. Design your own flyers and bring at least 50 to recruit people for the Margarita Relay. Your flyer should include date, time, location, and event. Remember, with recruitment flyers, what you make is what you get. Write for your audience, got it?
SUNDAY - 11am laps n' cheese as usual! c'mon out and get yer miles on.
TUESDAY MAY 16 - 7pm - sherwood - THE SECOND ANNUAL TRI STATE MARGARITA RELAY (which actually isn't a relay at all, and only includes two states + DC, but whatever.) Expect ~30 miles, two bridge crossings, bring blinkeys, etc. The ride goes bethesda -> DC -> clarendon. remember?

and hey, i know we don't have rules, so let's call these "how to be a good pirate and not a ******"
- plan rides people.
- show up to rides you plan.
- recruit, recruit, recruit. this means ANY rider you meet anywhere is fair game!
