Most Generous Mad Bastard
As you know, we have a charity aspect to the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally, in order to raise funds for the Kids Help Phone (click here to go to the registration page). As we did in 2011, we will be awarding a brand new Bulova Precisionist watch to the person who raises the most money for charity.
According to the blurbage wrapped around a pile of $20 notes that was dropped off in a brown paper bag at the CMG offices today, the BULOVA PRECISIONIST is the world’s most accurate watch with a continuous sweeping second hand. Accurate to 10 seconds a year as compared to most other quartz watches which are accurate to 15 seconds a month.
The watch has been kindly donated by Tony Prezio of Quality Jewellers at 2917 Dundas St W, Toronto ON M6P 1Z1, 416-769-3469. Like last year Tony will also be riding the MBSR and will be there to present the watch to the best money raiser at the Friday night banquet.
Oh, and even if you don’t think you’ll be able to raise the most $$$, all and any helps and if you can get at least $200 raised we’ll reward you with a bonus 20 Mad Points for trying.
No, not in the sense that we’ve sold our souls, but in the sense that the rally has actually sold out! In that goddamn brilliant 99 sell out sense!! Not sure how it happened, there was a “is it too late for my brother to join me?” and the “can I bring my son?” factor, but it’s good to know that for the first time in Mad Bastard history we have actually sold out.
No more room at the inn!
Talking of selling out, the Travelodge is officially full! But fear thee not if thee does not have a room. The Comfort Inn does have room and is located only 10 mins away from the Travelodge and it’s a tad cheaper to boot at $92.99/night with the MBSR group discount, and it includes a complimentary breakfast (though sadly you’ll be gone before they serve it).
Just call them at 613-966-7703 and tell ‘em that you’re with the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally to get the lower rate. They have beds with two doubles or single queens. Just in case you need it, here’s the address: 200 Park St N Belleville, ON K8P 2Y9 and a link to Google Maps.
Get thee on thy forum
Okay, by now costumes must be well underway, teams sorted and plans hatched. So don’t keep it all to yourselves, write about it on the MBSR forum and join Jamie Leonard with his very entertaining Steampunk quest for MBSR dominance. Go on, show us your gear.
We’re looking for someone with a decent camera and a decent knowledge in how to use it to come to the Mad Bastard and record it for posterity and our usual 3 min promo piece. If any of you may know such an individual, please contact us with their contact details.
