The Dude Abides - March 3rd Boston Messenger Event



FLYER
WEBSITE

On March 3rd you will be the not big Jeffrey Lebowski, the Dude. Because man, that rug really tied the room together. And you need it back.

Start @ 6:00pm, location TBA. 10 bones, clams, or whatever you call them.

The registration will be open starting at 12pm, and will be at Kings Bowling, 10 Scotia St. Afterparty to follow w/ GoldsprintsNYC providing some entertainment. Free caucasians for those who come in costume (while supplies last).

This will be a race about going fast and quick on the fly route planning. For those of you that have done my races before, you know I throw a lot of curve balls. Quick on-the fly route planning and decision making required. First Dude over the line wins. You are not going to get checkpoints in advance, so don't ask.

Prizes keep coming in, it should be a good haul for the winners!

At least drink a few white russians to get in the spirit.

i'm hoping to do this; though it will probably be my first race unless something else comes up before it or if i decide to go down to nyc for MT. eitherway i predict getting my ass handed to me.
and i might be obligated to ride in this solely because the big lebowski is probably my favorite comedy of all time.

I make no promises about people working checkpoints long enough for you slowpokes to get your DFL.

yeah, who got the two tickets and a flat[or vice versa] at the 666 race? I saw that in the results. Hopefully the DFL doesn't involve a tattoo and no checkpoints involve pissing on a rug. I have a hard enough time pissing for drug tests with the door closed.

The DFL at my last race was supposed to get a free tattoo, but he disappeared before I could award it to him.

I raced in the zelda race and I ran into adam from darkwave[gave me this buddy mike name] at the middle east after and he asked who got DFL and if they got carried off by 2 big guys, but apparently that never happened.

I am currently working on a recipe for vegan white russians. Stay tuned. (Or maybe I'll just need to break veg for this.)

um- that was me. Did i note that i had to fend off a wana-be helpfull but falling down drunk guy why i was changing that flat?

I was prying the bit of glass out of the tire, and this guy pulls out this huge knife, and makes to give it to me. I was "no sir- this little blade on the multitool is just fine, thankyouverymuch."
