  • Speed BAG X

    Hello Baggers
    Now that Speed BAG IX is in the books, I wanted to start a discussion on Speed BAG X. This will be the 10th anniversary of our speedbagging community gathering. I want everyone on the forum to consider attending next year’s gathering. I hope we can make this the best ever.

    I am in the process of trying to contact the original group of baggers, and hope that most, if not all, can make a return appearance. I know there have been a few baggers that made all (or most all) of the gatherings - SpeedBag (AK), of course, G-town (Louis) and Juxt (Justin) as well. Last time I spoke with Deano, he expressed interest in attending. I’m not sure about his Dad, Ted, but if he’s up to travel, I would love to see him there as well. Other SpeedBAG 2010 attendees: Tim (Tim Platt, our founder), Spinsmashpop (Brian Tichy), MsDeville (Denise Mandeville), SpeedBagSkunk (Zach Ruffo), TJ (TJ Matee), Piefurz (Greg), SpdyTommyT (Tom Tabino), Eighty-Eight (Jack), and SpeedBagScissorHands (Adam). My apologies if I missed some folks. Some of the original group of baggers have been on hiatus from the forum, but I hope I can encourage them to attend.

    Of course, all current active and inactive members are encouraged to attend. I would like to see 30 or more members make this event. Some current and and longtime members: Dutchman, Paranday, Zaza, SpeedbagAtaraxis, Ventanakaz, Rehamco1, BagBoy, Rdshakleford, Jaja6009, Regal, Reb, Fedora, Davidlwilkie, PunchDrummer, Ebozyn, Novaspeedbagger, DeePooler, MetalDad, ToolBoxDiver, if at all possibile, please try to attend. Start saving $10/week (if possible) in a SB account to help pay for the event. Again, forgive me if I’m leaving anyone out.

    Baggers around the world, if Deano made the first, maybe you could attend the 10th! Think about it.

    It’s impossible to mention all our members, but certainly all our active members from the past few years, please consider putting this on your calendar for next year. I will check with RealGymm (Donny) and post the dates ASAP.

    Let’s keep up this thread for any and all discussion about SpeedBAG X. If we’re going to do this the right way, we will need a few people to step up and help with planning. I’ll take the lead, but I’ll need some assistance. Free free to jump in the deep end with me.



    EDIT: I took down the FB SpeedBAG X Group since it’s silly to have a separate group just for this event. The FB SpeedBAG Annual Gathering Group does a great job with getting out information as well.

      I live about 3,000 miles from Keyport NJ, and I've already looked into my itinerary. Think I'll have to fly out of here on the Tuesday night and land in Newark on the Wednesday night.

      EDIT; I know it's extremely early but any idea on when the exact date will be announced?

        I will help as well.

        How are we doing on equipment at Real Gymm? Did anyone take a platform inventory?

          No exact dates yet. If we have a “crowd”, we may expand to Th, F, Sa. Preliminarily, we are looking at July (11), 12, 13, wrap-up on Su a.m. (14).

          AK, can you confirm or correct?

            Can anyone who attended SB IX chime in?

              And with 180 members, most of which are not on this forum, lots of visibility.

                    Thanks G.

                    I heard back from Skunk; he’s starting to save and definitely wants to come.
                    Deano is a definite “maybe” at this point. Ted is out.
                    Brian said he would be there if he’s not on tour.
                    TommyT said he and Becky will be there.
                    No word yet from Denise, TJ, ScissorHands, or Jack.

                    velocidadedaluz got in touch with me, and said Dee Pooler expressed interest in coming to X.

                      Have "Dee" Would be a huge addition. You just have to experience him "live" to get the full affect.

                        Update: 8-11-18.

                        Just had long conversation on the phone with Dee Pooler and he IS planning on attending Speed Bag X.

                            If it's held, that will be the date. And there is no reason that I know of right now that it would NOT be held. It's been the weekend after the 4th of July week for the past 7 years.
