Rockfight at the Confluence.

  • April 1, 2013 · 7:00 PM

There are plenty of rocks to choose from at the confluence of the North and Middle Fork of the American River. $10.00 to enter. Slings, and slingshots are OK. Last man or woman standing gets all the money An ambulance will be standing by. Come join the fun!

    Now I'm the biggest fool at last!

    A rock fight would have been a blast
    I might even have ended up in a cast!
    Can't wait til next year; I'm going to start growing my rocks now!

    Can we use trekking poles at this
    event? Looks like slingshots are
    already approved?

    Apparently, my trebuchet is "not a permit load" or something and I couldn't use the Foresthill Bridge to gain advantage. Who won?

    Got there late and there was three people left so I started throwing rocks. Boy were they pissed! Maybe I went to the wrong confluence ...

    Talk about old school! That's how the Flintstones used to get stoned. Ya ba da do! Count me in! (Hope I can find my turtle shell helmet)

    Can we bring our own rocks?

    • Jimmy

      Hey Mike is it April 1?

  • dan d.

    I think I tricked Seton, so I brought scissors to destroy him

    April 1, 2013

  • Steve G

    I'm hiding. There's no way I'm going to let Seton find me with that paper.

    April 1, 2013

  • Susan C.

    It'll be fun throwing rocks in the dark!

    Just for fun I'm going to try and take out the judge. Glory to H&C

    I'll bring my night-vision goggles.

  • Mike B.

    Hey yawl, just got off the phone with Guinness World Records and there aren't any rockfight records. Can you believe that! So they'll be sending a bona fide judge to the event! Kinda caught me off-guard so I was only able to come up with two categories: The biggest and the bloodiest. Can you think of anymore?

    BTW They already confirmed that we'll be getting the World Record for the Dumbest Worlds Record! Go H&C!

    In a rockfight, the winners referee.

    April 1, 2013

    • Mike B.

      Hi Steve, still haven't recovered from the last rockfight? (sorry about that BTW) The winners write the HISTORY.

      April 1, 2013

    • Mike B.

      I just looked it up in Hoyle's. The "referee" in a rockfight is usually the one that holds the money, the Bank. So the better question is who is the Bank? ;-)

    Ouch! Lol!

    At least I'm not the 1 trying to bring in trekking poles... Trash can lids for shields. If anyone gets hit with one, it was an accident.

    April 1, 2013

  • mary

    I don't understand this event, we pay $10 to throw rocks at each other? No Hike?

    1 · April 1, 2013

  • Will L

    Can't wait. Are metal shot for slingshots OK?

    April 1, 2013

    • Mike B.

      Don't think so Will. It is a "rockfight". Although I believe automatic sling shots are allowed ...

      BTW, who is going to referee?

      April 1, 2013

  • Sherpa H.

    I am bringing the branding irons we used last year to mark the losers of this year..... ; )

    March 30, 2013

  • Monica

    I'll make sure to dress appropriately and bring the necessary high powered equipment ... but I don't have $10.00, maybe make a trade with how many I hurt or disarm???? :-)

    I admit I went too far. Was letting off some steam at seeing what I saw. Let's keep it mellow if we meet.

    Is branding involved?

    Can we nail the loser to a cross and call it the cross at the confluence?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
