FIELD TRIP 69 - THE ULTIMATE PIT PARTY!


And some old pics from past pit parties!

Saturday, July 17th, will always be remembered by a lot of slurrey folk as the best pit parties ever. Well, unless of course we manage to beat it with a better party soon.

The turnout was great, a lot of people cancelled but I invited enough that at there were at least 35 people who came. A ton of my friends came, and friends of their friends, and even people I knew from high school. Chad W was even there!

Slurrey people who attended: Me (no shit), Val, Chad, Robin, Mel, Eric, Sara, Gavin, Aron Marty, Chris Hale, Pat, Mya, Tink, Mike, Ivar, Jessie, and Calen.

I brought Pat's stereo and the bastard had given me dead batteries to go in it! Pat you fucker! So I got Eric to get some... the damn thing took 8 D's and 4 AA's... fuck man might as well have brought a nuclear power plant to the pit with us. All the batteries cost $20... Pat you owe me at least half of that.

Basically everyone got really drunk except me and Chad (we were the DD's). Aron totally went crazy and was saying/doing the funniest shit. He started giving everyone east-indian names, and from that point on in the night his new name was Sukhwinder. Mya was pretty drunk too, apparently she went around looking for Cloud (a retard on our message board) and I must say, there were a few people there I thought might actually be him! Someone passed out for the entire night, and fell into a pile of broken glass (people were smashing bottles all over the good places to sit).

The fire... oh god the fire. Best bonfire ever. Me and Eric lit the fire, Mya helped by crazily squirting lighter fluid all over it. We threw a printer and Gavin's busted VCR into it, and later on Mark comes back with a plastic shopping cart, which burned like nothing I've ever seen before. It melted so weird and pools of melting plastic flowed down the fire, check out the pics, they look sweet! The shopping cart then became a throne for Mya, the Queen of Whalley.

So many things happened during the night I'm having a hard time remembering them, and I was sober!

- A couple of people picked up hot embers from the fire and were throwing them to each other.
- Pat's friends started a mosh pit.
- Couples were randomly walking in and out of the bushes hmmm.
- Tink got a date.
- Darren and Jari were there too!
- Darren was Chad's secret service agent!
- Robin was pretty wasted and kept talking about "picking up bitchez".
- Chad had to keep going back to the car to give everyone rides too.

That's about all I remember! I'll add more to this post as people remind me!

For a while, slurrey was down. (like a bitch on hastings)

But now, it's back... and better than ever. (like a bitch on hastings)

Do you know you can add "like a bitch on hastings" to the end of any sentence describing something? And it's always true! Only someone like Blago could come up with that...

Spiderman 2 was one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. I loved the original, and the sequel tops it in every way possible!!!
I ended up going with Val, Eric, Sara, Robin, and Gavin and his friend showed up later!

We had to buy our tickets 4 hours early, and wait in line for 2 hours to get good seats. I think it's fafe to say that this movie broke a lot of records at the box office.

Goddamn, I fucking loved the movie. Everything about it rocks.... there's also a wicked scene that pays tribute to Sam Raimi's previous Evil Dead movies. You'll know it when you see it.... it was absolutely hilarious.

Oh yeah, last saturday was the pit party!!! There was a pretty good turnout, and I got excessively intoxicated. We had another VCR, an old 486, and a printer to smash around. The VCR flew apart with the first throw, and the 486 was almost indestructible, as was the printer. We ended up throwing them all into the fire throughout the night, but this time there weren't as many green/blue/white/purple flames. I was too drunk to be pissed off about it.

The printer ended up exploding, and then burning ink was pouring out! Then Mark took fucking blasting caps and threw them in, the result was amazing. They almost blew the wood off the fire!!!!! The boom was so loud we must have woken up the entire Scott Rd area. \m/

Everyone had lots of fun and the pit party was a big success.

So, tomorrow (friday), we're celebrating Canada Day at the pit! It's not gonna be as big of a party as last time, and we probably won't have anything to smash/burn, but we'll have fireworks!!! A bunch of us are just gonna get together and drink and maybe roast marshmellows or something. If you want to come, let me know by commenting below!
