Peanuts Drunk Fest 2000
by Terry - firstname.lastname@example.org
Rain or shine, Drunk Fest is really going to happen! The fest begins Friday, June 2 at 6 p.m. and will continue through Sunday, June 4, until sunset. This event will be held at Skydive First in Crawfordsville, Indiana (about 45 minutes north of Indy). If it rains, the party begins when you wake up, otherwise the drinking begins at sunset and will continue all night.
Come meet and skydive with the one and only Peanut from the newsgroup. The horny gorillas are going to get pretty wild so we highly recommend Protec Helmets (not required).
Here are some of the events planned for Saturday night:
1) Pin the sheep tail on the Peanut.
2) 100 Octane Hot Potato Game
3) Complimentary Dinner (cheap food)
4) Pie the DZO, if you can run quick enough.
5) Naked Night Jumps (if enough are sober)
6) Free Beer
7) Watch Peanut try to get laid at the nudie bar...hehehe
Also enter to win a Master Blaster! The drawing will be held around the bonfire at 3 am. Winner must be present to win. Just in case "officer friendly" shows up looking for Peanut, we ask that everybody keep a dozen donuts in their coolers to try and get Peanut out of jail.
For lift power, there will be a CASA based there all weekend. So come jump the tailgate. Jump numbers don't matter, just leave the egos at home. No skygods allowed! Just jumpers that want to have FUN!!! This is going to be a REAL BOOGIE! Check out Peanuts web page at http://www.georgerabe.com/peanutxx.htm or call Skydive First at 1-877-877-JUMP.
