    Default Social Butterfly (and Infiltrator) - Pointless Prizes

    So. The moment you have all been waiting for. The details of the Social Butterfly (and subsequent Infiltrator) pointless prizes!

    This is a bit more complicated than my other one, so I will break it down to make it as simple as possible.

    The premise is pretty simple. Be the person that goes to the most social events related to Freezing Saddles between January 10th and March 19th.

    What is a social event, you ask?

    1) A BAFS happy hour (such as the opening happy hour happening on Tuesday) that is publicly posted and open to all participants of BAFS and has a minimum of nine other BAFS attendees (ten total)
    2) A BAFS team specific happy hour planned by members of one team that is either publicly or privately posted and has a minimum of three other BAFS attendees (four total)
    3) A BAFS organized ride of greater than 4.99 miles that is publicly posted and open to all participants of BAFS and has a minimum of nine other BAFS attendees (ten total)
    4) A BAFS team specific ride of greater than 4.99 miles planned by members of one team that is either publicly or privately posted and has a minimum of three other BAFS attendees (four total)
    5) A local shop/coffee/social ride of greater than 4.99 miles planned either by BAFS members or the general cycling community that is publicly posted and has a minimum of five other BAFS attendees (six total)
    6) A coffee club with at least five other BAFS attendees (six total)
    7) Any other bike-related event (for example, Monster Cross or a bike related movie at Arlington Draft House) with at least five other BAFS attendees (six total)

    For all non-ride events, photos are required that name (forum user names please) all BAFS participants and describe the type of social event.
    For all ride events, photos that name (forum user names please) all BAFS participants and a Strava link are required. Please advise the type of ride (BAFS general, BAFS team, Shop, Coffee, etc).

    Photos (and strava ride links) should be posted in this thread. Only one BAFS participant needs to post, everyone that attended will get credit.

    Bonus points will be awarded for any event where at least 9 team members participate.

    A really awesome prize that is yet to be determined is up for grabs here. Not to mention all the really awesome people that you will get to meet!

    Default The Infiltrator

    In addition to the Social Butterfly, there is the Infiltrator Award.

    This is the award for the person who infiltrates the most "Team Specific" events.

    What is a "Team Specific" event?

    1) A BAFS team specific happy hour planned by members of one team that is either publicly or privately posted and has a minimum of four members from the posting team
    2) A BAFS team specific ride of greater than 4.99 miles planned by members of one team that is either publicly or privately posted and has a minimum of four members from the posting team
    3) Any other team specific bike-related event that is either publicly or privately posted and has a minimum of four members from the posting team

    For all non-ride events, photos are required that name (forum user names please) all BAFS participants, which team organized the event, and describe the type of social event.
    For all ride events, photos that name (forum user names please) all BAFS participants, which team organized the event, and a Strava link are required. Please advise the type of ride (BAFS general, BAFS team, Shop, Coffee, etc).

    Please indicate that you infiltrated the event. Each individual that infiltrated the event will need to post their own photo (duplicates will not be accepted) if they wish to be counted.

    Bonus points if more people from YOUR team show up at the event than those from the organizing team.

    Does it count as infiltrating if you have a significant other also doing BAFS and you go to their team event?

    YES! And I tried as hard as I could to keep SO's on different teams, like I did last year, to make this more fun.

    So couples, if you do not want your SO to infiltrate your team's ride... Better be stealthy!

    Ah but apparently once again you failed, for once again Shaw Dread (my apparent significant other) is on my team!!!!! If course I think he is just an infiltrator!!! We slackers welcome infiltrators - those slackers who slacked so much they did not bother to register.

    Default I don't like coffee or people

    Well, dang! Except for going to the opening happy hour, I'm pretty sure my score will be the lowest possible!
    I despise coffee (but I do love my Diet Mt. Dew), and I prefer as little interaction with other humans as possible. (Sorry...It's been a rough year with the election and stuff that I prefer to avoid people if I can).
    I know. I'm not the type of people you are looking for, but I like to ride by bike (assuming it's dry).

    Oh yeah. And I don't like waking up at 4:30 am to do dumb bike stuff!!

    And yet your becoming a forum social butterfly making multiple posts. That is a start. And you ride with one or more people often. I wouldn't ride often at 4:30am-ish either if I wasn't doing it on a trail. Biking in rush hour in the dark and rain is not the best way to make it to the next BAFS social event.

    Bob! I hope you didn't think that 4:30 am statement was geared towards you!! Although, I do know that you are an early bird, but I've noticed that a lot of cyclists are out riding when they should be taking a morning pee break!

    As a reclusive misanthrope, I'd have to say that I actually the social aspect of BAFS the most and my life is much better because of coffee club.
