Oakland A’s Bike Rally: August 30th

August 8, 2008 at 2:38 pm Leave a comment

For the record, the bike rally will be on August 30th, 2008.  It will start at Lois the Pie Queen at 10am sharp.  It’s going to be a big day, so I recommend you order the Reggie Jackson Special.  Be careful, it’s a big meal.  We’re making room for playing pranks with various media sources during the coordination of this event, so listen up: 8/30/08 is the correct date.

My buddy and I are organizing an Oakland A’s Fan Rally that will highlight the history of the Oakland Athletics in their hometown.  It’s going to be big, fun, and family friendly.  We’re making costumes, games, noisemakers, and bikes with grills on the back for tailgating.  Ooh yes, there will be tailgating.

The plan is to meet at different places that people can get to easily from BART that highlight A’s culture.  We’ll be biking from place to place with boom boxes, A’s flags, and baskets of goodies for both spectators and participants.

Tentatively, here’s our schedule, (I’d love to hear  any other places along the way to the Coliseum that would be a great place to meet up).
August 30, 2008:
10am Lois the Pie Queen
12pm Macarthur bart parking lot
2pm Ogawa park (in front of city hall on 14th and Broadway)
4pm Fruitvale shopping center (next to bart)
6pm Coliseum parking lot

One idea that we’re working on is to have pictures of the Oakland A’s World Series Parades through downtown Oakland printed on projection sheets that we put into special viewer for people to match up the images of the A’s parading with today’s downtown in the background.   This way, we can have little lookout points through out the city with stories about the A’s.

Anyone have any good pictures to share?  Stories to tell?  Ideas for a parade route?

My friend’s going to have some new designs for the ads we’ll be putting up by Sunday.   Official announcements and maps in the weeks to come.

For now, remember August 30, 2008: Lois the Pie Queen: 10am: bring your bike: wear green and gold.
