    MA Washing of the Bikes

    On the suggestion of Erik Nottleson, I am planning a "Washing of the Bikes", a meet and greet at a self-service car wash. The plan is to take over a bay, hang out, chat, wash, eat, drink, etc.

    Does the weekend of March 31/April 1 work?

    Does anyone have any other suggestions for Airhead get togethers? I was thinking of a barley therapy session in one of the watering holes in Davis Sq., Somerville now that the Red Line is again running on weekends. I am also planning another Driveway Tech Day at my place sometime this spring.

    Would this be better in NE Regionals? Are you restricting this to Airheads only?

    You will do less damage if you do it in somebody's driveway with buckets and a hose.

    I wouldn't be too happy if a bunch of bikers showed up at my car wash and "[took] over a bay, hang out, chat, wash, eat, drink, etc." (if I owned a car wash). Might be intimidating to the "natives".

    Think community PR.
