Well, looks like we are doing pretty well.
I could give you my opinion on why we have a climb/decline in statistics and back it up with dates/events but that is not necessary. I think we are accomplishing what we set out to do.
The site is getting looked at. More and more people from around the world are coming to it. Registration is approaching 400 and it is a dispersed population. Lot's of people from Europe are looking at slalomskateboarder.com and although the "flak" level has been reduced, the content is still excellent.
You hold the bar high depending on what you hold the bar to.
Some of you have taken a vacation or have quit, que sara, maybe see you at a later date.
New members, new enthusiast abound. I personally have had the opportunity to practice with a young Hawaiian woman at the local spot. She is the FIRST woman slalomer that I have come accross in Phoenix in all of my years here. She is enthusiastic and has a beautiful smile walking back up the hill. Determination abounds in this girl and I hope to be able to be a part of her improvement and enthusiasm in racing. Not to mention the others that Tom Blankley is bringing into the sport in Phoenix, they too are coming right along and also have that determination and drive. I hope that all of you have this experience having new people to run cones with, it's fantastic.
On any account, keep up the good work and thank you for contributing to slalomskateboarder.com
