We just want to extend a huge thank you to everyone that came out last weekend to support an event that we've kept going somehow for 9 years now! It means the world that anyone would come and spend their hard-earned cash to help us put this thing on for everyone to have a good time year after year. It couldn't happen without you! And a huge thanks to everyone that lends a helping hand during the show; it's the greatest crew of people and friends we could ask for. Also, all of the insanely good bands and sound crew that kept us rocking all weekend, thanks a bunch! Can't forget Oakland Valley Speedway for having us and putting up with the shenanigans, and all of the vendors and sponsors that set up and keep the masses happy and fed! Congrats to all of the award winners as well! We'll get some more photos posted up as we get them, here and on the Instagram - @strangedaysevent. For now, here are a few that the super talented David Carlo snapped during the weekend; this is just a sample, check out the rest on his site at:
One lucky person will be the proud new owner of this 1972 Harley Davidson Sportster next weekend, and it could be you! Tickets for a chance to win this beautiful "Then Came Bronson" clone bike will be on sale for $10 apiece or 3 for $25 at Strange Days 9, until we conclude with the ticket drawing around 7:00 PM on Saturday July 13th; don't miss out!
The stainless "Bronson" style sissybar built by the super talented Retrofit Cycle Works boys will be the cherry on top for this gorgeous ride!
If you're interested in donating to any of the numerous animal charities out there, this is one of the best. "The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) is an American, non-profit, charitable organization founded in 1951 with the goal of reducing pain and fear inflicted on animals by humans. Its legislative division, the Society for Animal Protective Legislation (SAPL), pushes for the passage of laws that reflect this purpose." Contributions actually go to the cause at hand and not just advertising.
The AWI Quarterly magazine shows a glimpse where your money and efforts go. "Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people. We seek better treatment of animals everywhereâ€”in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home, and in the wild."
