Workshops! Movies! Bike RIdes!

First off, I hope everyone who reads this had a chance to go to January's art walk. The skate demo and skateboard art was absolutely amazing, and it was inspiring to see so much potential in this city. And for those of you who would like to see a more permanent urban skate arena check out the Skateplaza of Springfield. This is something I think really needs to happen, last night proved there are people interested and that we just need to see some better outlets.

But back to bikes,

there will be two open workshops this month,
Wednesday, January 14th 5:30- 7:30
and again
Wednesday, January 28th 5:30- 7:30

this will become a regular thing, and topics to cover will be a whole mess of bike maintenance necessities; from the intro of replacing a tube to that messy business of derailers and truing wheels.

now, this isn't too say that individuals aren't more than welcome to come in for one-on-one guided repairs. Joe in particular is a fan of these, and his personal schedule is looking like tuesday and thursdays 1-6, but call/email to confirm. and remember, we are a co-op meaning donations or the willingness to swap volunteer time or wanted materials is a crux to how we work.

On both Jan. 14th and Jan. 28th, after the workshops will be movie nights!! I hope you haven't forgotten! These are free all the time for the awesomness of sharing good fun and meeting new people. Movies begin at 8:30, and for the 14th we've got BMX Bandits.. for the 28th we've got Bomb It!

more stuff:

a lazy, winding ride full of awesome people, some sweet music, drinks and debauchery

new zines have come in, and the library will be officially opened tomorrow late afternoon (like 5). I'm working on getting a myspace up for it, but in the mean time give Cherri a call at 904.307.2451 if you have any questions or are interested in selling/promoting/buying a zine (also often I tend to screen calls from unknown numbers, please please leave a message so I know you're a really important person to call back).

and finally, the ZBBC gang has had its first official meeting for the second Bury Your Bike weekend extravaganza. Things to look forward to will be zombie chases and scavenger hunts, sunday sixers and pbr, polo and pool hopping, bands and dj's, plenty of free food and just plain fun. Tentative dates are either April 24-26 or May 1-3. Plan accordingly.

hugs and kisses,
the ZBBC
