Free the Nipple heads to Mission Bay

first_imgNewsHub 7 December 2016Family First Comment: There’s a time and a place. This isn’t the time or the place!A Free the Nipple event set to take place on Mission Bay next week has been slammed by watchdog group Family First.The event, which more than 500 people say they are attending on Facebook, aims to “desexualise the female body.”“This is a chance for us to act for equality and enjoy a summer’s day at the same time, so come along and let your nipples get some sun,” the event’s description reads.However, Family First’s Bob McCoskrie says the event is inappropriate.“Obviously we [Family First] would be opposed simply because families would find it offensive.”A spokesperson for the New Zealand Police said they deal with issues like this on a “case-by-case” basis depending on any complaints they get from members of the public.They said it is hard to determine in advance whether an event such as this would lead to any arrests.Mr McCoskrie criticised the police for taking a hardline position on streakers at public sports matches, but for often being relaxed over nudity such as this.He said that it was “questionable” whether an event such as this would be legal.The organisers of the event have been approached for comment.Free the Nipple: Beach Day is set to take place on December 17th. read more

Meyer extends win string at Off Road Speedway

first_imgBy Randy [email protected], Neb. (May 13) – When an opening appeared among the cluster of cars in front of Ram­sey Meyer, he did the logical thing – he sped through it.As a result, Meyer managed to move from the fourth row of the starting grid to second within one lap of the 12-lap Mach-1 Sport Compact feature Saturday at Off Road Speedway. Just one lap later, Meyer took the lead from Norfolk’s Shannon Pospisil.A caution with four laps remaining returned the field to Meyer’s rear bumper and although Dustin Jackson took advantage of the opportunity to be side-by-side with Pospisil, he was unable to over­take Meyer who went on to win his third race in a row at Norfolk.Jeremy Hoskinson gained his first Off Road Speedway win of the season in the IMCA Hobby Sunoco Stock division, ending Austin Brauner’s string of consecutive local victories at two.In the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature, Ron Pettitt was also able to secure his first Off Road vic­tory. Pettitt passed John Brudigan three laps into the 18-lap race and led the rest of the way, win­ning by the length of the straightaway over Shawn Primrose and Jason Wilkinson.Dylan Pospisil won the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature for his first Off Road victory of 2017 by getting inside of Colby Langenberg on the third lap, then denying Langenberg’s bid to regain the lead.last_img read more
