10am – 12pm
Brunch and informational meeting for the afternoon events at the Heritage Carousel in Union Park. We will also register and hand out rally bags to any late arrivals.
Hard Ball Scooter Ride: It may sound like a Wisconsin Dells attraction, but this ride is no laughing matter! Our ride planners came up with this gem during a PBR/beef jerky fueled “brainstorming” session. Too many details would give it away, but this ride will be something. If the Scooter Cannonball Run and the World Series of Gymkhana shacked up in Iowa, this would be their unholy love child. Throw in some geocaching with a pinch of jackassery and you have a pretty sweet afternoon. But like all scooter events, the Rockers are waiting around every corner to ruin all of your fun…
5pm – 8pm
After Hard Ball, you WILL need some down time. So grab a nap/shower and recharge for Saturday night! Dinner is on your own, so check out the list of our favorite restaurants and check one out.
8pm – 2am
PRESSURE DROP: An all vinyl dance party and music celebration. Your host, DJ Eight Ten and his special guests, will spin the finest in Motown, Jamaica Ska, Northern Soul, Rare Funk, Roots Rock, Raw Rhythm n Blues and Reggae. It is a night to dress up, a night to celebrate, a night to blow off steam, a night to be thankful for what we’ve got and most importantly…a night to dance.
Sunday, May 29, 2011
12pm – 2pm
After PRESSURE DROP, you may not feel like moving for awhile, so there will be an optional brunch at The Fremont. Start with a build your own Bloody Mary bar, then add in biscuits and gravy, omelets, and doughnuts to round out the morning.
2pm – 4pm
Scooter Show/Slow Race/Raffle/Vendors. There will be a few informal rides during this time as well.
4pm – 2am
CORPORATE RETREAT 2011: Always wanting to go out strong, we are closing out Hostile Takeover II with a multi-genre music festival. Open to the public, we are using this show as a way of raising awareness of scooters and scooter culture to the average citizen. Check out the event page for more info. Between bands we will be awarding trophies for all of the competitions and announcing the winner of “The Kraken.”
All scooter makes and cafe racers welcome.
