bg/ish: "Besides, I know a few maneuvers."
If ever an event were made for bg/ag publishing, it would be this, the Rental Car Rally, which this year runs from San Francisco, CA to Yuma, AZ, a 650 mile course. Say it with me now... "sweeeet".
The Rental Car Rally is a "single leg competitive road trip starting in San Francisco and ending in Yuma, AZ. There is no set route, but each team must hit pre-defined checkpoints, the locations of which will be provided in the rally booklet given to each team at the starting line. Each team must provide photographic evidence of each checkpoint. No photos = disqualification. Each team is scored by a combination of odometer reading, team style, and hijinks". And yes, as the name implies, it requires a rental car. Better get the insurance, ifyouknowwhatimsayin.
Cost of entry is $250 per team, which includes "admission to the rally, the rally provisions bag for your team (the rally booklet w/ rules and coordinates for checkpoints, the rally contact sheet w/ info on other drivers, two mix CDs, energy drinks, condoms, cigarettes, beef jerky), the May 13th party and drink specials, the party in Yuma, the chance to win one of 12 Flip Video cameras, and the the rally prizes."
I've come up with a fool proof plan that involves ag selling his body to pay for our team. He'll be on board or he'll die! (In which case he'd be replaced by chair, to whom the responsibility to defile one's body for money would then pass.) But let's not sweat the details right now.
