the bike beauty contest will be judged on the following criteria: conformation, welds, paint, and overall creativity. i have 2 judges already... and they're awesome.
we also need prizes for the beauty contest and best costume. and score cards. 1-10 on index cards on a ring... do it!
justa- is blessing us with something rad for the best costume prize.
tiago- is making something snazzy for the most beautiful freak bike.

N. freak is bringing lances & cones.
then we go party & dance.

sat. oct 18th

polo location is at alberta park... tall bike competitors may need mallets. jus' sayin.
the workshop is at dutch's house. (that's why breakfast is at your house on sun. instead)

bike derby starts at 8pm. we need cones and vests. can whomever brought them during MBS please bring them again? or contact me?
DEATHTRAK needs some explaining. pay attention.
this is to be one of the most brutal events ever. chariot wars is for girls. yup. cause i won. ha! no really... i want carnage, weapons, SAFETY GEAR, fireworks, food, liquids, and awesome. ya heard? this is an individual event. there will be a tiered competition. heats will go, then winners square off in the end. someone may go to the hospital.
we need old matress's, cardboard boxes, pallets, safety barrels, real barrels, food, edible or not, smoke bombs, roman candles, flares.... whatever.
skye-the obsticle course will be worked into DEATHTRAK.
