The Atlanta Bucks are hosting their annual Miss Ruck-N-Maul drag competition, and this year promises to be a beautiful mess. Doors open at 5:30 - come early to enjoy a drink or two, bid on items at the silent auction, and meet the Bucks. The show starts promptly at 6:30. FAQs I love the Atlanta Bucks, but I also love Ready4Hope. How can I support both? We've got you covered. As part of our commitment to giving back to our community, the Bucks will be donating a portion of the night's proceeds to Ready4Hope. Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? Alcohol will be available for purchase at the bar, therefore, all guests must be 21 or older to enter the event. ID may be required. In addition, the show promises to be Rated R for highly inappropriate content. If you are easily offended, opposed to fun, or just an uptight and unpleasant person, please do not attend this event. (but you can still make a donation!) Is there a dress code? Seriously? We'll have rugby boys flouncing around in garters and heels, and you’re worried about what you’re going to wear? We aren't likely to care too much how you look, but please make good fashion choices (poor fashion choices may make you fair game for public shaming by the performers, the MC, and most everyone else.) Are there reserved seats? There are plenty of chairs, but seats are not reserved, so be sure to claim the one that you want before it gets taken. But don't plan to spend the entire evening sitting on your ass. We encourage everyone in the audience to stand up and cheer, clap, dance and twerk as the spirit moves you. Also, be sure to wander over to the auction table, stagger over to the bar, and mix and mingle with the Bucks. What's the refund policy? Sorry, no refunds. Please consider your ticket purchase a small donation to a charitable organization. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? Yes. As a non-profit holding a fundraiser, there are certain paperwork requirements that we must meet in case we are ever audited. Not having our paperwork in order can threaten our status as a non-profit – therefore, DON’T BE THAT GUY. However, if you are that guy and you forget your printed ticket, let us know and one of the Bucks will attempt to assist you. Please make sure that the name on your ticket matches the name on your ID. I've never been to a Miss Ruck-N-Maul Pageant. What should I expect? This year, 6 performers will be competing for the title. Each contestant will be performing 3 songs, and we will include a couple of 10 minute intermissions to help keep you refreshed. During each performance, if you see something that you like, are enjoying yourself, or the drag queen sets off an uncomfortable tingle in your home entertainment center, then tip the performer. You can hand the tip directly to the performer, or drop it in one of the collection buckets at the front of the stage. If you run low on bills, don't worry, there is an ATM. So go crazy and show some love to the performers. How is the winner determined? The performer who raises the most money by the end of the show will be crowned Miss Ruck-N-Maul. The fundraising total will include the sum of pre-event fundraising, ticket sales, and tips received during the performance. If I buy a ticket to support a particular performer, can I still give tips to the others, or should I only tip the performer on my ticket? Your mama may have told you to be a "one woman" kind of guy, but we encourage you to make it rain for as many of the girls as you want. There is no limit to how much you can tip, how often you can tip, or how many performers you can tip. I'm not able to attend the show. Can I still support one of the performers? Definitely.

This sounds like so much fun, I almost peed myself. Is there more? Yes, there is more. The Bucks will be hosting a silent auction, featuring donated goods and services from some of the local businesses that support inclusive rugby. Check out the wares at the tables in the back and place your bid. The highest recorded bid at the beginning of the second intermission will win. If you are winner, be sure to claim your prize at the auction table before you leave. My preacher tells me that it is unseemly to throw dollar bills at a drag queen; are there other ways that I can tip? The Atlanta Bucks is an "inclusive" rugby team, which means that we are accepting of most all forms of payment. You can donate with a check made out to "Atlanta Bucks RFC", or if you to prefer to make a charge to your credit card, find one of the uniformed players and they can assist you. Just make sure you do it before the end of the last song, and be sure to specify which performer you want your donation to support. After watching so many beautiful women on stage, is there a place I can go afterwards to see some hot guys? Absolutely! After the show, head over to Atlanta Eagle for Bucks bar night. The team will be serving up drinks and selling Jell-o shots in the back bar. There's no cover charge -- just hot guys, booze and the perfect way to say goodbye to the beautiul mess that was 2016.
