We had another amazing rally and send out our love, thanks, and two stroke smoke to all of you who braved the freezing cold to commemorate 15 years of FYBO. We were able to raise about $1,000 to donate to Durham Rescue Mission, thanks to your rally registrations and the raffle! Special thanks to that guy with the stripper dollars covered in glitter who bought so many raffle tickets…you know who you are…
We also got some pretty substantial news coverage from the News & Observer – read all about the rally here and check out the sweet video they put together about the rally and scootering, shot during our town ride excursion to the Duke Lemur Center:
It’s the 15th Annual Freeze Your Balls Off Scooter Rally, heading your way MLK weekend, January 17-19, 2014, in Durham, North Carolina. All two-wheeled vehicles welcome – bring your mopeds, classic scooters, modern scooters, motorcycles, etc. for a rally that doesn’t stop for cold weather!
We’ve got a lot of fun things planned for this year – in addition to the usual shenanigans, we’ve got a permit to drink on the sidewalk Friday night so we can check out all the incoming scooters, a town ride to the Duke Lemur Center (home to the largest population of lemurs outside of Madagascar), new bands and our awesome soul DJs at Motorco Music Hall, and we’re back at Parker and Otis now that they’ve reopened and revamped after a fire. For ALL THE DETAILS, visit the FYBO website at http://freezeyourballsoff.wordpress.com/!
Mark your calendars for a weekend of Incriminator action! On November 9, 2013, we will embark on our somewhat annual group ride to Ye Old Country Kitchen in Snow Camp, NC to feast upon a giant buffet of Southern food goodness. We’ll meet at Weaver Street Market‘s parking lot in Carrboro, NC at 11:00 a.m. and hit the road shortly thereafter. If Weaver Street Market’s lot is full, we’ll meet at the municipal parking lot across the street from Weaver Street Market. The ride will be about 45 minutes, one way, on a scenic, scooter-friendly route. There are always people who drive, rather than ride, so if your scooter isn’t running there’s no reason to miss out on the buffet…
SCOOTER DOUBLE FEATURE
The Incriminators are also hosting a scooter double feature on November 10, 2013! We’ll be holding our November club meeting a little later in the day, at 4:00 p.m., to screen two scooter movies on the wall outside at Bull McCabe’s after the sun goes down (not to worry, it’s post-daylight savings). Bring a camp chair and a blanket and enjoy the show! We’ll be watching Vampires Anonymous (featuring one of Curley’s scooters) and Repo Man.
Bull McCabe’s Irish Pub
427 W Main Street
4:00 p.m. until we stop watching movies!
The Double Feature is dependent on Bull McCabe’s not having started construction yet, so the date is subject to change. If there’s any change, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.
We’d love to see your face (and your scooter) at one of these events! Even if your scooter isn’t running, come hang out.
