For folks coming out to Temecula the Friday night before Slab City
this year, we're going to gather up at Jul's Backyard BBQ
in Old Town about 7:00PM. Last year we swamped Lumpy's trying to eat together with too many people, so grab dinner anywhere you choose and just meet for beers at Jul's. They've got good beer, lots of bike parking, fire pits, horse shoes and a relaxed vibe.
Then Saturday morning, roll out with the Wuss Ride
crew from the Swing Inn around 10:00AM. The Biltwell crew is leaving a little earlier because we have some stuff to set up out there, so we'll just meet everyone out at the slabs.
Bands are ready, Mexican catering is locked on, the Whisky Bar is already fully stocked. There are rumors of a sponsored tattoo set-up, more on that later. The Coctagon
is planned, bring your A-game, the prize is $500 for the last man standing. This battle of the bats is McGoo's baby and is sure to provide entertainment and more than a few bruises. Bands start immediately after the Coctagon winner is announced.
A bunch of people have asked if they can do or bring anything to help out. We appreciate the offer and the answer is yes, please bring firewood. If you've got a van or truck following you out, load as much wood in that sucker as you can. We're gonna have a giant bonfire and we are limited on four-wheeled vehicles. You can also help by posting this flier around on blogs and forums and by supporting the generous sponsors who pitched in to make this thing happen.
