An important message from Ron Summers...
Hi all!
Based on answers to questions Ron has been fielding by phone over the last two weeks, here is some additional info about BOOGWOB IIII beyond what was included in the terse event flyer.
Bunch Of Old Guys With Old Bikes (BOOGWOB) is a fellowship of Puget Sound region bicycle collectors founded in the early 1990’s to promote Vintage Bicycle Events in our area. People from all disciplines of bicycle collecting (TOC, Balloon, Muscle, and vintage Lightweight, Customs, Rats, Stupid bikes, whatever…) made up our ranks and still do. We expect to see a mix of all of the above at the event.
The event itself is billed as 50% Swap Meet, 50% Bike Show, and 50% bike talk. If the talking doesn’t go over the allotted time that means there is still approximately 34% left to do other Old Bike related things and we will have a signup sheet so we can get info about BOOGWAB 5ive out to interested parties.
The event is being held at a private residence with a Big Bicycle Building (90% full of bikes and stuff like old bags of Vigoro, not much setup room in there…) and a smallish covered deck. There is also a large paved driveway and a grass lawn for setup but no additional cover. If you are planning to bring swap items larger than a bike tank please call Ron before the event to let him know how large a space you anticipate needing. As this event is for collectors and not the general public, consider bringing items that will appeal to that group (rusty Free Spirits move slowly in this crowd).
COVID! Ok, After discussing this issue at length, the event organizers came to the conclusion that in the best interest of everyone’s health, please consider this event only open to those who have been vaccinated against the Covid-19 Virus.
We are truly sorry if this excludes anyone that was planning to come but navigating the many specific issues for this singular event coupled with the location and our concern for the health of all (The first “Old” in BOOGWAB shows we are dealing with an endangered subset of the population. No one wants to see a spike in Old Bicycle estate sales as a result of this event.)
As per protocol, Please bring and wear a mask, a beer straw if you need one, and maintain social distancing (6-feet equals one bike length).
If the above leaves you with any questions, please call Ron Summer for additional information, the phone is his friend.
THANKS! – The BOOGWOB Event Crew.
