So I'm leaning towards the great Minnescoota idea (at least for its first name). The primary reason for this is that this rally isn't really "Regulars" (vintage) based anymore, it's everybody on Minnescoota.
I like the Mill City Massacre mostly because it doesn't suit as at all (old folk with kids and jobs and such - ooooh we're such rebels). Makes me chuckle a little.
We'll have a second name or annual theme or whatever too. Perhaps the Deja Sku or Du can go there...I think that this mild reference to the old name is fine, we just need to make sure whatever we name it can stand on its own for whoever decides to continue it.
There are a few other options as well, vote if you care. If you have a brilliant idea, post it.
First meeting: Chatterbox Pub, 6:30pm, Thursday Sept. 29 or the following week, Oct. 6, same time. This is just to kick things off, there won't be another for a while. Please post if you plan on being part of the planning, whether you can make one of those days. I know we won't get everbody there, but I'd like to pick a day most can come.
I know I don't live there anymore but I like Mill City Massacre the best too. But I voted something else because I think just "Mill City Scooter Rally 2006" would be cool. The massacre part just seems kinda overworked. Then it gives St. Paul an opportunity to have their own rally too. Maybe somthing like, "St. Small Scooter Rally - No Compensation Required" with a logo of a really "big" person on "little" scooter (maybe next to a "little" person (no, not an achondroplastic individual) on a harley).
I'm just full of ideas (and "quotation marks" and paretheses)

I know you didn't ask for comments, but had to share...
I voted for Skootafisk, but really my vote is for anything but "The Great Minnescoota Get Together". Incorporating Minnescoota in the name would be ok, but making it sound as mainstream as the friggin' fair is unappealing for me.

I voted for the Mill City Massacre as it it just so cool. If you go with this idea, it would be cool if the artwor was a shadowed picture of people lined you against a brick was and falling over as they are executed..... just a quick thought.....
I voted "None of the Above" as I'm still fond of the Du references. However, I understand why it's controversial and perhaps verboten.
If I had to name the new rally I'd connect it to one of the two truly unique Minneapolis icons (the other being The Gall of America), to one of the few things we have that is authentic for all who reside here (we are not really millers anymore, not all Norweigians, definately not massacrers, etc)...hence,
