Between my wife and I we have some pretty cool marketing /promotional connections.
Talk to Derek at The Bike Joint. He is the one who prints up the flyers and gets the permit for the ice.

Cool I will go see him as .."unoffically" Red Bull was "Hell yea we like it....that's the ****"... I don't want to push any race org members out of the way or anything. I'm a retired messer and bringing some of the crazy world of messing to the real world has always been something I wanted to do. How does Ice Races at Maple Leaf Gardens sound?

Lads ... I have in my hand FOUR passes. That's a 50/50 split, how you guys wanna do it I don't know.

Now the biggest question as of yet unanswered.... Is the food good there (Moon Bean), and what time? I don't feel the need to be there as the doors open myself but if you guys all want your passes early I can be there. I have two kids so waking up in the morning is no longer the problem it used to be. lol

J...you're a good sport. That's FOUR PASSES kids.

i'm ungainfully employed so i'll pass on the passes as well. not sure if i'll be doing this solo or with the girlfriend. if it's the former, i'll be supplying the requisite bbq pork buns. i can also double somebody up on the locking issue too if necessary (will be bringing a krypto-molly and onguard-mini.)

Moonbean has some food, but I've not eaten there-it's more or less a cafe. For me, the caffiene fix is sufficient to draw take me there.

As for the pass, I'm workin' for the man as well, so give it to one of the students. Thanks for the offer.

i'm probably having breakfast with the folks so noonish would work for me, but don't let me stop anyone. as for food; kensington is one big culinary experience so take your pick.

thanks for the generous ticket offer but i'm not 100% sure I will be able to make it.
it all depends on how long my lunch on sunday takes.
+ if I do make it down, I'll have to meet you guys at the convention centre because I def. won't make it in time to catch you guys at moonbean.

If theres no extra free tickets available I'd be happy to buy one myself... I may be a student and artsy and lazy but I'm not especially broke. Plus there is a chance my girlfriend may come, but probably not. I am meeting with Bike-o-phile at the show to pick up some bits for my wheels so I will essentially be going whenever he is (although he said he will be there on both saturday and sunday). I'll go ahead and put my vote in for meeting at moon bean at 11:30am, just because it seems 'proper'

PS. bake, bean and bake. and then bake again!

Hey donít get me wrong free works for me, letís just see who shows up & go from there. Time wise i say 11:00ish time for a coffee & get to the show around or just before 12:00 that's my vote. Still a few days before, so we'll see.
Cheers

Have fun guys. My plane doesn't get back 'til about 1 (read 2:30 by the time I get out of the terminal) so I'll miss most of the joy. Just as well as I need to cull, not add, my cycling pile.

I could go for some free pass action. Money's a bit tight right now. I'll happily buy some breakfast goodness for my sugar daddy though.

I was thinking 12:00, but 11:00 works as well. And if anyone wants to get together earlier for some greasy breakfast, let me know. It doesn't even have to be in Kensington... "have bike, will travel".

I have a couple places I like, but none of them are very centrally located, so if anyone else has a suggestion, let it fly.

Oh.. and to quote Jeremy:

Damn fscking right, brother! I'll also pass on the free ticket if a student needs one. If we wind up with a surplus we can always do the math and split the cost of the remainder of tickets that need to be bought between us workin' stiffs.
