Me and my friend still have ours on and plan on taking it off as the roo volunteers go to put the 2009 one on. Hopefully it doesnt get destroyed before then as that would be truly epic. has anyone completed the full year cycle before?

Unfortunately I don't still have my wristband on, I had to take it off for work. However, they put a sticker on my windshield so that I could park my car in Staff Lot B. It says "Bonnaroo" and has the logo on it. You better believe that sucker's not coming off my car!
Plus it is designed to shred when you try to pull it off, so I don't want to destroy it! It's the best way to preserve it, imho!

Sadly I must admit. I took mine off today. For a week or two my wife had been dropping hints that she is over my bracelet. All attempts were thwarted easily, but then... in the heat of the late night 4th of July "fireworks" explosions I raked the back of my lovely wifes neck with the plastic part of the wristband. At this point it was GAME OVER for me leaving it on for a year. Oh well... it's still wearable...after nearly Dremeling my wrist I broke the black sleeve and the two ends were already sewn together so I just slid that baby off. I'll wear it when I go downtown.
To all those roosters still wearing your wristband, I salute you. You are brave and strong...and deserve to have a beer bought for you.
I haven't taken mine off, but I want to get rid of the plastic thing so I can tie it. I've seen some people wearing tied ribbon bracelets lately...maybe it's the new thing? Not that any of them could beat a Bonnaroo bracelet. I am going to try pliers like the guy on page 1 did. I'll let you know how it goes
I did it! I used some sort of wire cutter I found in the toolbox. There are two plastic cylinders inside of each other, so if you cut gently, you can make the outer one into two pieces. I recommend cutting across the body of the cylinder (perpendicular to the direction the ribbon ends of the bracelet are in). The bottom piece will come off the ends of the bracelet. The outer piece that's left is more maneuverable and you can then use a scissor or same wire cutter to make a cut in the opposite direction (cut will be parallel to ribbon ends of bracelet). Once you have done this, you can remove the outer cylinder completely and the rest pretty much just comes apart.
I ended up taking mine off, but I took it off with pliers by just ripping that black part apart. I managed to keep the band itself completely intact and intend to have someone make a new bracelet or something out of it some day.
Holy crap. They don't stink? I guess you might not care. More power to you guys.
^^LMAO...um you could just wash it with soap and water. I've turned mine into a bracelet that can be taken on and off so that I can wear it to all the shows I go to. Hopefully some one will notice from Roo whilst I'm out and then Bam more Roo friends.

My dad ( a less than progressive 60-something from Alabama ) asked me what "that fruity thing on my wrist was" ... I told him it was for cancer - It was just a lot easier than the truth - I would imagine that the "its for cancer" line would work with 99% of bosses...
