    oh, no, I'm not. I just wish they'd join the rest of us weird quiet people and ride bikes all the time. A naked bike ride, surrounded by a bunch of other sweaty naked randos who probably also don't ride bikes, sounds like the worst thing imaginable."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Bostonopoly 3 weekend July 17th and 18th

    this fun filled shit show of a weekend is a fundraiser for the BBMA emergency fund.

    Friday night will feature the infamous stays of thunder nascar themed crit , and saturday will be the main event of Bostonopoly 3

    We do need some volunteers for checkpoints , if you are interested in that , or need more info please shoot me an email bfresh1@gmail.com

    Below is a synopsis of the rules , as penned by Jacobs. If you remember this race , you will remember that it is one of the most entertaining messenger events we have ever done.

    The object of this event is to make as many "ayyyos" as possible. speed means very little in this event, so do not go to crazy on the streets and remember to slow down and have fun. this is an adapted and somewhat simplified version of monopoly themed alleycats that happen all over europe annually.

    at the start of the event you will receive an ayyyo advance, a manifest and a checkpoint map. write your name and number on all manifests or you will not get credit for them. your first stop is already filled in on your manifest.

    for three hours all the checkpoints on your map will be open, and they are sending things to each other. delivering a package on time will earn you 50 ayyyos, if it's a rush, 100 ayyyos. all packages will be timestamped at pickup, and you have one hour to get them to their destination, 30 minutes if it is a rush. late packages will be accepted, but you receive no payment.

    at each checkpoint there are 2 stacks of cards. the community chest (yellow) card must be drawn first. follow the instructions on the card. if it says to pay a fine, you must pay the fine listed and the money goes in that checkpoint's "jackpot". if the card has a bonus on it, the checkpoint will pay you. if you draw the jackpot card, you win the jackpot. if you draw the "jail" card, the checkpoint will confiscate your manifest, you must go to the jail checkpoint, get your card stamped and then you can bring it back to trade that card for your manifest.

    next you draw the chance (orange) card. these are your runs. each chance card will have 1-3 runs on it, and whether they are a standard or a rush. you may do several calls at once, and make multiple deliveries at one stop, just watch your deadlines.

    each manifest holds 5 jobs. a complete (full) manifest is worth a 200 ayyyo bonus. when your manifest is full, you can get a new one at any checkpoint. make sure you hold on to your completed manifests, you need them to prove the work you've done.

    staff will be on the course with lots of ayyyos and will be giving them out; impress them and maybe they'll give you some. bribes are accepted and encouraged. get your hustle on.

    after 3 hours the checkpoints will close, and you go to the finish. count your ayyyos, put them in an envelope with all of your completed manifests and hand them in.


    Missed this post. I worked a CP for this during NACCC and it was really, really fun. Like bike tricks and table dancing inside the bar fun. Wish I could do it again but children. Y'all should volunteer or race.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Late notice, but MassBike is putting together a Nov. 1 ride from Boston-Salem-Boston. It's no Red Bull Witch Hunt (yet), but if anyone would like to join us, here is the facebook event:

    https://www.facebook.com/events/1648451175414545/

    We'll meet at Equal Exchange in the West End at 9:00am, ride to Salem, get some pizza and beers at Flying Saucer, check out the halloween aftermath there, and ride home. About 40 miles round trip.

    EDIT: Possible rain date - Sunday, November 8

    Thanks!

    Sounds like a dash for cash style race to me, something quick and winner has to buy all the drinks after. Probably 5 check points, probably dont need a bag or a lock. But don't quote me on any of it.roz-berry-lime

    Yeah, anyone doing Chanksgiving? Rare that a bike even doesn't collide with my work schedule. This one doesn't. If I don't have to help move skateboard ramps, I'm prolly going to go.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    Definitely going, and trying to sell my Crux, no need for a spot myself.

    These swaps have really dwindled in size over the past 2 years since they moved them over to district hall. =[

Permits and all) by old school messenger Rebecca Reiley the weekend after next - June 3-5. Free lodging and food at our place!"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
