Blood Drive

Revision as of 21:57, 24 November 2020 by Bbarrans (talk | contribs) (added BD11)

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.

Blood Drive I

On July 18th-20th, 2003 The Mosquito Fleet hosted the first west coast Moped Army BBQ/Rally. The Blood Drive Moped Rally was held in Seattle, WA and members showed up from The Bombardment Society and The Decepticons. We swarmed the city, hung out at the beach, put on a rock show, and partied at the moped house.
