Da Rules. (2014 edition)

Theme this year: MONSTER MASH
2014 BEN HURT CHARIOT WARS RULES

Meet for Brunch at 2pm on Sat 2/15: 1730 SE 35th Place
After brunch (around 5pm) we will ride as a group to the wars. The location is a secret to keep cars away. Fuck cars!

Rules are basically the same as past years (Goon squad will be in effect to make sure y'all are safe):
-Build a bicycle pulled chariot, connected with a hitch system.
-At least one rider on the bicycle and one in the chariot.
-All weapons must be padded. No helmet pulling. Don’t send your friends to the hospital!
-Your team is OUT if: (a) you become disconnected from your bicycle/chariot , or (b) your shit breaks.
-Chemical weapons are discouraged.
-Battle Cars can compete but you cannot win.
-This year’s theme is MONSTER MASH. Feel free to gear up/decorate accordingly.

  1. Is a two person stead, or side-by-side "Bike Car", pulling a single combatant chariot still considered a chariot that can compete to win?

  2. Bike cars (sometimes called battle cars) can enter but can't win according to this year's organizers.

  3. How about the flip side of things? A single person stead on a standard bike with two combatants in the chariot?

    1. That seems to be just fine! And I think you could also get away with a tandem bicycle pulling.
