CLAW is proud to support P.E.A.C.E. Scooter Girl, Alix Bryan [AKA Cowgirl Sady-istic], with the proceeds from our April 8th Tournament.
P.E.A.C.E. (that stands for Patriot’s Exhibition Advancing Community and Environmentalism) Scooter is a ride across and around the U.S. to discover how Americans define the word “Peace.” It is also an active demonstration that Peace is a way–it is every step, every mile, every moment. Alix’s 20,000-mile route on back roads creates a huge Peace sign on the U.S. map.
Last year, Alix completed 11,000 miles and heads back out in May to finish the remaining 9,000 miles. Her focus is not only on Peace, but also on community and environmentalism. She hopes to find events like CLAW that are helping to make a difference in community (but doubts there is anything quite like CLAW).
Along the way, she will interview hundreds of people, exploring how individuals and communities define and work towards Peace. All bizarre, enlightening and humorous moments with the people she encounters will be showcased through film and on a blog, for free, on her website. She definitely needs your support and invites you to follow the journey starting May 2, 2008.
Her goal is to raise at least $1 per 1 mile traveled, by inviting community to sponsor parts of the Peace Map. After expenses are covered, she hopes to have raised at least $10,000 for donation to grassroots, community based, educational nonprofits–to help them keep the lights on. Along her route she will also be volunteering, collecting can goods through scooter shops and mowing lawns into Peace signs.
Don’t miss the opportunity to give Alix a big sendoff on April 8th! Come to Blue Moon Diner early. The tournament starts at 8:00 p.m. and you’ll need CASH for merch, fake bribing, and fake betting!
