In the summer of 2011, Reservoir Geeks heard of the financial hardships that had fallen upon the motel used in Wes Anderson's directorial debut, Bottle Rocket, and decided to do what they could to help. The SAVE THE BOTTLE ROCKET MOTEL event was conceived and successfully executed on July 9th 2011 with more than 200 fans in attendance.

Every summer since fans (or Bottle Rocketeers) have come to spend an evening at the Bottle Rocket Motel (Days Inn - Hillsboro) filled with laughs, libations, and like-minded people celebrating a film that launched a fandom.

On September 12th join us for our 5th year at the Award-Winning LOVELY SOIREE at the BOTTLE ROCKET MOTEL!
