You should thank Marcus for that one.

And I would like to thank Mr. Surly for the offer to convert them to PDF and host them. But since we used Excelmate for the race, it seemed appropriate to post them on Marcus's site.

A HUGE Thank you!

Post by Claude Regnier » Thu Sep 25, 2008 8:30 pm

On behalf of Mary-Beth, Dan, Gabe and myself I want to say Thanks to everyone involved in helping with the race.

To those that did not attend do yourself a favor and try to make a future one. I can't name everyone but you know who you are. Even after our parked rental car got hit and we were stuck there things were so good we couldn't get down or anything.

The town folks, the police, the church the organizers and everything going on just somehow kept us all in a positive mood.

I went to Toronto with Sydia & crew and MB went to Ottawa with the boys and Bernie. The business meetings went great and the move is imminent and will likely be in a few weeks.

We just received and e-mail from Brian telling us our gear (we left in Antrim, no room) has been vacumm packed (pillows & sleeping bags likely some clothes) and packaged along with the other stuff and is ready to be shipped. What a huge Thanks we owe you all.

Mig & crew did a great job on the race. Although I was in quite a bit of pain throughout the weekend (no it wasn't my knees) it was great and the competition is fierce.

As for the kids race. This was so nioce. Helping out these newbys get better run after run with a little bit of technical coaching and the odd gear adjustment kept the face of pain burried deep beneath the smile.

Take Care everyone.

Thank you to ANTRIM and everyone that helped out....

Thank you to Joe, Brian, Mig, George, Glenn, Juliette at the Maplehurst Inn & the entire town of Antrim for a killer race and one hell of a good time. EVERYONE involved worked their butts off.

The weather was beautiful, the hill was awesome, the courses challenging.
Being in the parade made me feel 10 years old again & bombing main street to the bottom with the blessing of the police after the parade was PRICELESS! The BBQ & fireworks ROCKED!

Watching & being involved with the beginners race was something I won’t forget. I can’t help but remember …. That’s exactly where I was 19 months ago. I’m amazed every time I think about it!
I’m grateful everyday to everyone who helped me out when I was just beginning.
The expression on little Matt’s face when he won the Full Bag deck was epic!

It was great seeing old faces & meeting new ones.
Bobby filled the weekend with stoke, Raylene & Emilie ripped it up!
I can’t wait to see their progression on the slalom course.

I finally got to meet a girl I have been chatting with for a year on Myspace.
Mary Gatlin lives in Brooklyn & came all the way to Antrim to meet me & all the other skaters. She is originally from Texas & used to be a skater. Come to find out, she knows Lou & all the Texas Outlaws from way back in the old days….. It truly is a small world!
I sent her home with a Pavel GOG deck I bought from Joe. She is going to set it up, start skating again & I have a feeling we will see her racing next year!!!

Here are a few of my memories:

Antrim Lost & Found

Post by Brian Beihl » Mon Sep 29, 2008 2:20 pm

Sounds from the posts that many of you found stoke in Antrim, a number of you found new friends, and a couple of you even found love. As for what you lost . . .

o I have one brown Vans leather shoe. So if you were wondering why you were hobbling out of town . . . .

o One pair of black Quest fingerless gloves

o Joe is looking for his BMX armor, which we didn't find, but were wondering who picked it up.

Let me know and send an address!

What size and which foot? If it's a R shoe and size 10.5-11, and nobody claims it, I'll buy it from you!

IF I remamber correctly, it's an 8.5...

Ok - thanks Mig...but put me down for a pair of the new Fullbag racing shoes with the replaceable soles!

You could have a wear indicator like tires do..."if you see the nutsack, it's time to replace the sole". ;-)

FULL Bag

If your nut sack is hanging that low it's time to get a date, or a hooker. The hooker would probably be easier since if it's that low you have not had a date in a long time......

One More Lost Item

Post by Brian Beihl » Wed Oct 01, 2008 1:13 pm

Hi,

A Kansas City Royals hat was left at the Seven Maples. Belong to anybody?

Mig is correct, the Vans shoe is a right 8.5.

We just received our four boxes of gear we had to leave as the result of the hit rental vehicle.

Thank you all once again for all the extra stuff you did for all of us. Our event is truly blessed in more ways then one!

Now that's what I call organized. Dates almost a year in advance, that should help find a cheap fare to Manchester.

Thanks Brian and Antrim as a whole. BTW, will we be in the parade again? I have to bring more stickers!!!

As long as you wear clothes and don't smoke anything illegal, you'll be in the parade.

He was the leader of these guys:

And apparently he wasn't too pleased with the skaters getting too close to the float.

Oops.

Antrim Daffodil Days

Post by Brian Beihl » Tue Mar 31, 2009 3:25 pm

Friends of Antrim:

Antrim Daffodil Day. Nope. Not a skateboarding event. But if you macho skaters out there want to come see the 5,000+ daffodil bulbs and attend some gardening clinics, we'd love to have you visit Antrim on Saturday, May 2. See the the event web page at:http://www.slalomskateboard.com/daffodils/ We've got a fishing derby and bike rodeo for the kids, a free movie, and a breakfast at the Presbyterian Church.

Headlining the clinics is Roger Swain, former host of the PBS show Victory Garden, and possibly Governor Lynch, but he hasn't committed yet. We're even going to be mentioned in USA Today in an article on daffodil festivals.

I personally planted many of these bulbs and have the poison ivy to prove it. So you'd better come and enjoy the X@#$ flowers!!

Brian - I know you are serious, but the tone of your post makes it one of the funnier things I've read on ISSA forums recently!

I'd go just for the breakfast at the church!

Just got back from racing in Texas - talked up your event (the race - not the daffodils) to racers who haven't been there yet. The season is in full gear now, and we are coming to your town SOON!

Hey Bri,
I think we could get an outlaw race together by May 2nd if you think you could get USA Today to cover it as well! We gotta continue to spread the stoke every way we can.
Brace yourself Antrim--- sooner or later..we're comin.

Antrim Daffodil Day

Post by Brian Beihl » Wed Apr 01, 2009 2:38 am

As you might guess, the Antrim Chamber of Commerce is going for a SLIGHTLY different demographic with this particular event. Seriously though, our project is to plant 20,000 bulbs in and around town over the next five years. Our plan is to have it attract visitors from throughout the region and get into some travel guides and regional magazines. We got lucky with the USA Today article, but that's what it's about.
