This year is FOAs 10th birthday!
FOA started when I was looking for bits to build a trackbike in 2004, at a time when parts were difficult to locate, and people who knew about about said parts were even difficult to find. So in 2005 I was selling some track cages on eBay (I think), and added the URL of this forum into listing - amazingly, enough people viewed the cages and became curious about the site… And well the rest is history.
So, FOAs 10th birthday is going to be a celebration of its humble beginnings… With a humble nationwide party. In all major cities in Australia where there are FOA riders, I need reps who I can trust with beer money to buy some beer - the format is simple: Go for a ride, drink some beer, post some pics.
When? Sunday 1st Nov, your capital city from 2pm - self-organise in your respective forums (in the meets section) - mods will nominate beer money reps. If no visible meetup has been organised in your city forum a week before the 1st of Nov, any funds allocated to your state will go elsewhere.
FB EVENT PAGE - RSVP - IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET HUNDREDS IN THE ‘GOING’ COLUMN? Redirecting...
So where is this beer money coming from? Well that’s a great question… And the answer is: A very very large percentage of this years donor funds.
The more site donors we get this year, the more beer* will flow! If you haven’t already become a site donor, get into it - it’s $20, you get a sweet badge next to your name, warm fuzzies, etc: http://www.fixed.org.au/forums/payments.php **
Additionally, I have this Larry frame to giveaway - all FOA donors are eligible to win it. Names will be drawn out of Rolly’s tweed cap.
*Or ginger beer, if Brendan comes, post-10,000th-post-saga.
** Everyone is invited, not just site donors
