IPRD = International Pie Run Day

It all started innocently chatting with the Bandit Guys from Down Under...

.
I can't wait for the "Down Under" Pie Run :rider: :eat:
What's the anniversary of the simultaneous Pie Run? Maybe we can coordinate one world-wide one of these days? Gotta factor in the Int'l Date Line though.
International Pie Run day? :ponder:
There's a thought! We have enough folks overseas, as well as members that travel abroad. The last Saturday in October will be the 25th. Let's just get everyone to have lunch somewhere that day, whether they join a Pie Run or not. The only criteria is that they need to have pie with lunch and submit a photograph to prove it.
Its a deal partner...:eat:
-------

So, there you have it - October 25, 2008 - IPRD.

The scheduled TWT Pie Destination is Debbie's Pies in Hutto, 11:00 AM.

BUT...

If you can't make that one - you must make up your own, a Ride for Pie on the same day, and report it (there will be a new thread in the Story Telling section that Kurt will start ;-) ) AND take pictures.

That means all of the international locations that are too distant from central Texas can plan their own:

far Texas locations:

El Paso
Midland Odessa
Amarillo and Texas Panhandle

Out of state locations:

Oklahoma
New Mexico
Louisiana
Arkansas
Georgia
North Carolina

AND international locations:

Washington state :-P
California
Mexico
Australia
UK
Middle East (gotta be creative on pie locations)

and any other spot where TWTers are located...

Pick Your Time
Pick Your Place

25 October 2008 - The First Annual International Simultaneous Pie Run Day!

-------

Who:
Definite:
:sun:

Probable: :cool2:

Maybe: :scratch:

Thinking about it :ponder:

Unlikely but a hair of a chance... :pray:

Cancellations :-(

Re: Crazy Idea - IPRD - 10/25/2008

this does sound like a cool idea

maybe we shouldn't limit it to just pie, as I'm sure pie may be hard to find in other parts of the world, but rather any desert locals frequently enjoy

Very intersting. . Do you think this will be the first world-wide, organized, motorcycle forum event? I'd like to see the turnout numbers also! :eat:

WOW! :eek2: Talk about a cool idea!

We're in for Washington state. Maybe I can even gather some of the locals up here for a good showing.

Firstman is in AZ, and if I get the transfer I'll be there too so Phx and Tucson will be covered.

TM - how about some commemorative T-shirts to celebrate the day?

Re: Crazy Idea - IPRD - 10/25/2008

What if I bake some pies and invite motorcyclists to my house that day?
Yep, that will work too...

group photos at every gathering would be cool, so we can get a feel for how many people participated

I'll probably be in North Carolina or Arkansas enjoying the fall colors at the end of October. I know just the place in Arkansas for pie! :eat:

Re: Crazy Idea - IPRD - 10/25/2008

need a logo--somebody more talented than me good at simple T-shirt designs.
I was having trouble coming up with something for a banner image too. The banner is such an odd shape/size, it's tough to find pictures that work well.

Re: Crazy Idea - IPRD - 10/25/2008

I just took a nine day trip around NM, AZ, UT, CO, KS, OK, and back home. After visiting the Very Large Array (VLA) in NM, I ate lunch in Pie Town, NM. Pie Town is on Hwy 60 in western NM between Datil and Quemado. Pie Town calls itself the Pie Capitol of the World, or something like that. I had a good lunch and a great piece of blackberry pie. I'd like to stay in Texas for the IPRD, but it sure would be fun to go Pie Town each year for a crazy event like the IPRD. I have some pictures that I will upload shortly. Check it out: Pie Town, New Mexico. www.pietown.com It looks like their 28th annual Pie Festival is 13 September 2008.

Kim, anyone can submit banners anytime they like ;-) One thing I look for though is that the text is clear and easy to read relative to background images/patterns. I don't want it lost in the clutter. The easiest thing though is to PM me the images because I don't track any threads and won't get emails letting me know you have replied.

Well, it doesn't HAVE to be pie. You can broaden it to desserts in general. You know... a BIG Sopapilla drenched in powdered sugar and honey... :drool:

Maybe we should have a list of locations for people to pick from? The main location for Texas will be whatever one is currently scheduled. Other places can be added so that folks can look for something near them if they can't make the main location. Then folks in other states and countries can add their locations and if we get lucky, they might even get some decent groups to show up. Of course, there might need to be some cross posting on other non Texas forums to get those folks to show ;-)

Hey Chuck,

Is there any stats on the biggest pie run to date? I don't know but it might be interesting to perhaps achieve a pie run world record if such a record exists.



I plan to be there and will also e-mail my large list of fellow riders in the state to perhaps host one at a related city.

SEYA,

RB

Great idea!!!:clap: I don't know about Pie Town, but I will get something going in New Mexico. I know that there will be atleast one other motorcycle there.

I will EM this to a buddy in AZ.

My guess 200+ bikes.

Put me down for an XL T-Shirt.
