The Mosquito Fleet of Seattle, Washington holds a rally bi-annually entitled Blood Drive in Seattle, generally in July-August. Moped Army members and non-members come from around the country to participate.
Blood Drive 1-6 were held annually from 2003-2008. Blood Drive is now held bi-annually to alleviate the rally heavy Moped Army calendar year. The Mosquito Fleet now alternates rally years with the Puddle Cutters, in Portland, Oregon. (I.E.: Seattle: 2018, 2020, 2022. Portland: 2019, 2021, 2023)
Due to COVID-19 Blood Drive was cancelled in 2020.
No actual blood is donated to official organizations. But every year some blood (and some skin) is left on the street accidentally.
