  • The Aggie Bash At The Trials

    Somebody finally alluded to it in another thread but I am amazed that nobody ever said anything about the article in the latest edition of TFN in which they laid out the huge ongoing beer-bash that's going on out near the track during the whole Olympic Trials. Is everybody on this board too sophisticated (uptight?) to admit a compelling interest in such a function?

    Beer bash? I thought Alan Webb:s kegger last weekend was the highlight of the party.

      I'll be there, if for no better reason than to pass the time while the parking lot thins out! Actually, a bike might be the best way to go in Sacatomato. No need to worry about a designated driver...

        I've been in two minds whether or not to go to Sac (long way for such a diluted schedule)...I did notice that article and thought, "Hmmmm...perhaps I should go afterall". The only "sophistication" factor is what sort of beer will be there!

          Never been there, but looks pretty good. Most microbreweries of this type are fairly good in Northern California.

            All the days are not created equal, that's for sure, but even the "diluted" days at the OT are--for me at least--filled with nothing but joy and wonder. Rare is the OT day that isn't better than any other single afternoon of track you'll see in this country this year. And to get 8 of them over the course of 10 days is heaven on earth. Especially if you have the time/inclination to use the two off-days in the middle to do a day trip to (take your pick of San Francisco, Napa wine country, Yosemite or Lake Tahoe).

            Or just do half; each has many wondrous events.

              I may have posted this before, but to aid one in seeing which events are when, here's how the rounds in each will shake out (there's no days 5 or 6 because those are the two off-days in the middle)

                  dan trust me you are in a lot more peril on a bike after drinking than behind a wheel. Been there, done that. WALK.

                    I think you'd better re-check California law Dan.

                      I went in 1996 (I think), one of the most exciting meets I've ever attended. Main memories are the extreme heat, shock at what a dump our state capital is, and MJ. I'll probably go up on the second weekend, although the one race I really want to see is the 100m. I need a tiebreak: which weekend has the best Aggie Bash activities? I know it's sacrilege to say this here but I've chucked out my last issue!

                        As a rule of thumb, aren't many/most state capitals dumps? Has certainly been my impression through the years.

                            I know all about the possibility of BUI's (Biking Under the Influence). I went to school in Davis, the bike capital of the U.S., 20 minutes from Sacramento.

                            Thank god for rounded curbs!

                              Then there's Los Altos, the little burg across the street from our current Mountain View digs, where we were headquartered for many decades; the constabulary there have been known to bust you for WUI if you decide to spare the populace the danger of your walking home and decide to hoof it.

                              And another trick they'll nail you for: no matter how well meaning you are, if you decide you're better to sleep it off in the car in the parking lot before you drive home they'll nail you for DUI anyway... but only if you have your keys. So you need to take your keys and hide them under a nearby tree, tell them you lost them and they'll generally leave you alone.
