If there was ever a Sizzler ambassador in Houston this man was it! He had tons of skaters at this house and played chauffeur and guide for them all as well as dealing with last minuet curves that are the hallmark of all events. he did it all with grace under pressure.
Ruth drove the official tow car for this years Sizzler she drove 110 miles and at time was towing so many skaters the the car looked like a rock covered with ants. Not to mention she is my wife and puts up with all my stressing and crap that comes with running a race like this, love you honey.
Tristan Soulsby-Monroy, Louie Ricard & Danica Yerke as well as all the others Cone heads who helped out.
You guys make things run smoother. Tritan did all the cone heading on Saturday and almost all of it on Sunday. Louie who was injured on Saturday took over on Sunday and Danica was the head cone head in the bottom of the course, thanks so much for all your help!
For being the woman's ambassador this year.
There was only 2 of you but Teresa made special gift baskets for the womans class as well as offering to help out.
For all his great camera work you can see viddy from this years sizzler http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=2001753100694
Stephen was the quietest guy at this years Sizzler. For those of you who don’t know he was this years timer, we had some problems with the exskate program and the timer, but it think that most people did not notice any big delays because it was Stephen who was able to think on his feet and kept things going.
Too our sponsors out shwag pile this year was phenomenal! as well as Wild Bill from Prodesign pads Cheetah oil and Robert Guevara & Vitamin Water for being on the hill both days.
Despite personal hardship still came out on Saturday to support his teammates and the race. we are all here for you my friend.
The Texas Outlaws.
This years race went well because we all chipped in and helped . . . thank you!
I Know that Eddy tells everyone that it was he and I that started the Texas Outlaws; he is just being nice. The Texas Outlaws were All Eddy’s Idea. I was the 1st person to be recruited and to be honest, being a skater I’m not big on teams and wore the shirt just to make my buddy happy. I (& I think it’s safe to say Eddy) never had any idea it would turn out as big or successful as it has. But make no mistake there would be NO Texas Outlaws and NO Sizzler without Eddy Martinez. He is the heart of the Texas Outlaws and my friend.
Ok enough of this love fest thanks too all that I forgot to mention. And get ready for Next year!!!!!
