Northside Operation: Candy Cane meet spot/time

SATURDAY, 12.20.08

For the Northsiders whom would like to ride down to the main meet spot for Operation Candy Cane(UofH downtown)

1960/i45 Exxon on the NW corner.

Meet at 9:30am, KSU at 10am


Remember to bring your Candy Canes in a backpack or my recommendation:
santabusa 1
If you bring a backpack, just reload those that bring open bins, makes it alot easier to pass out as we ride. Santa suits are very much encouraged, but we wont exclude anyone!!!!!!

Ride down to UH, then hit up about 2 dozen spots from there back North, around the Woodlands etc. End at Wolfies in OakRidge for celebatory dinner

Do you ride with the Santa hat on?

If so, how to you affix it so that it stays on but is easy to remove after the ride?

Industrial stength velcro on an old helmet; I believe I used screws and nuts to attach the hat to the velcro; was so long ago lol.

Around 80 and up its really hard on the neck w that hat. The beard stays on w just velcro and no screws attaching velcro to beard.

I used a hot glue gun to hold my hat to my helmet. Nice part about that is it won't mess up the paint on nicer helmets. But as stated: "test a small, inconspicuous area first". Also, be sure to hot glue the seams of the hat and the puff on the top better, they will get ripped off by wind easily. I got my Santa hat to speeds this weekend and it held up just fine.

I think they said $50 at WalMart...

If you are up north, Party City has a complete suit for $60 - I looked last night they had 4 left.

They have a really cheap suit too for $30 but those were all sold out.

At this point it looks like I will be going - depending on how the kids are doing (both sick right now) and if the wife and I can get any sleep over the next two nights.

1) how many candy canes should we get? I have ~100 now - do I need more? I got the large size...

2) what is the protocol -
are we stopping, getting off the motorcycles and handing out the candy canes?

just slowing down and tossing them?

stopping while on the bikes and having the kids/ adults come over to us?

3) Will the "bucket on the back" suffice or do I really need a tank bag to do this?
