    Default Anybody going to BikeFest?

    Just curious if anyone from the forum is planning on attending. I'm hoping to make it provided my plane is on time and I'm still in a mood to mingle with people (being locked up inside a bus with wings for 2.5 hours is enough to make me go temporarily insane).

    Yep, and I'm a volunteer between 6-10.
    I may be working the registration desk
    Or coordinating games -- oh my
    Or the patio bouncer -- I don't think I have the skill set for that
    Or restocking the bar -- just like what I do at home

    There may be dancing. The theme is the Roaring 1920's and I'm not very good at the Charleston. But I know I'm better than Blacknell.

    So please come, it should be fun.

    I'll be there all night and then some. Interesting that this is the first mention of BikeFest on the forum with just a day to go. Not sure that augers well.

    I am going and working the same shift as Ann. I love that the reminder email advised us not to show up for our shift drunk. I guess the rest of the volunteers are a good 20-30 years younger than me. Or have much more adventurous and less corporate lives.

    I think I heard it was almost a sellout (or it was a sellout), so it should be a success. My husband and I went last year when it was in Crystal City. It is fun!

    Cool

    Tickets are almost sold out.

    Eminva- it's the quiet ones I worry about.

    Wish I could join you all at this fun event. I hope it will be a huge success for WABA.

    We'll be there, we live about 3 blocks away so there's no excuse not to. I will be the only one not getting arrested for BUI afterwards...

    The ticketing info shows a sell out. I hope everyone who who plans to attend got their tickets!

    Great crowd at Bike Fest. Lots of flappers and ummm gangsters and one excellent zoot suit.

    Rhinestones clearly prepare one for life as a flapper.

    My stab at a live update.
