UPDATE 4/9
So our "outlaw" already got busted. The Dept. Conservation and Recreation found out and has asked me to get a permit. Brings the cost of the event up a lot. Fortunately I'm not taking this lying down and we are really close to be done with our permit application. With Insurance from ASSA and a rented porta potty I think we can get the permit. The Bonus to all this, I will be applying for ISSA points, this is going to be bigger than I had planned.

So for those who signed up last week, the entry fee is going to have to go up. I'm thinking around 30 to cover all the added expenses of the permit. I'm sorry about this.

Pay to play...30 is OK!

With a permit - can we get the dogs kicked out for the day??

Nice job KF. :-)

We were going to have to pay for the insurance up front to find out exactly how much the state would want and after talking to the guys it looks like they would want to shut down the whole parking lot for us plus a lane off route 28 and they might have a requirement to have an Ambulance there. All of this means $$- and I don't have enough time to sort through everything and I'm really bummed but I feel like I've let the skate community down. Sorry guys.


I'm going to try to come up with another spot or another date. More info to come.

Karl,

You haven't let us down!

It sounds like they are overeacting/not understanding the scope of the event. It would be interesting to see what they require for the soapbox events and how they handle their practice sessions.

Have you been talking to the local park supervisor or Boston HQ?

Hey, if all else fails, a late-June event could be tossed together + held at The Dam. The only downside (other than travel costs) would be the mosquitoes would be lurking... [Maybe a Deet sponsor would help?] ;-)
You want to talk to Ranger Phil there, and give them at least 2 weeks notice in advance.

Anyone up for training at the Fells Sunday morning the 15th if the Needham race goes off as planned on the 14th? I have cones but no timing. I figure as long as I drive all the way down there I might as well stay Sat. night and hit it.

We're planning on it. Hopefully nothing will get in the way.

It sucks about the event this year but it is all we can do.

We can totally plan a fells sess around that weekend, just have to keep it quiet because they might be expecting us.

Post by Eric Brammer » Sat May 31, 2008 6:12 am

Karl, I'll do my best to be there, and I'll see if I can't drag Schwipp along, too. Twins, not so likely, as my wife intends to do 'southern family tour' down Joajah-way to see Great-grandparents and other family. Now I gotta go find which box has my Roe in it! ;-)

Lodging INFO

If anyone wants to get a good cheap room there is a Holiday Inn in Dedham Massachusetts just down the road from Needham.

Decent rates.

Couches still a possibility, just let me know.

We are still considering it but money is tight and there is something closer that has come up.

Bringing the family?

Post by Eric Brammer » Tue Jun 03, 2008 6:22 am

Rick, Trader Joe's is the only way I'll get my wife to come down. I'll mention it to her right after I use up the 'Volcanic' coffee, and the various Trader Joe snacks that're in the cupboard. :-)

As for racing the Twins... Sitting down, pushing across the floor, these two are Quick! They'll sit back-to-back on my ECES longboard, scoot one way with one pushing (with feet, backpedalling), then footbrake, then the other will push the other direction! I've heard Justin say loudly, when getting close to the couch or corral-fence, "Crash!", and then giggle about it. So, scootin' across the livingroom floor, these kids might well smoke ya! BTW, big thanks to Nick for lending my wife his DH board at Dr. Dan's last year! That was my kid's first ride, and, yup, they're all about it now.

For now, I'll plan just myself attending. Schwip may yet come on down, but was non-commital when I last talked to him (at his graduation, so, the lad had other stuff on his mind..). BTW, he made Honors, and was 'SMS Snowboarder of the Year', and will at UVM next year. I gave him a Comet longboard for city commuting, so, Rick, it's up to you to show him the best stuff Burlington has to offer for cruising!

Finding some places slowly - done a lot of Google Earth followed by site visits. Have a decent HY/TS bike path with low traffic and and no footbraking - another one right next to it that is a bit steeper but requires hellish footbraking - and a GS run at a business park (entrance road) that has about 6.5 pavement, but I found out is due to be repaved within the next year.

Thanks, Needham High Longboard/Slalom Club for puting on the race. I had a great time talking and riding with all you guys. The HS course set by Karl was fun and flowing. The ramp start was exciting with the quick bottom transition; it made things interesting. The ramp scared me the first two times I dropped it but I loved it by the end of the day. Karl, CMC and Brian all looked good. There were a few new faces there were picking up the pace every run. WRummel has stepped up his game, way to charge it bro. Hope to skate with all of you guys soon.

It took me a while but here is a Photo Album I'm sorry, at present I have no image editing software as I am waiting for photoshop to arrive in the mail so these are raw
turns are fun....

Karl, Brian, Adam and all the NHS riders - thanks again for a great race down there. I see I got a photo in the "Wicked Local" article...cool.

Great to hang out with you guys afterwards and especially to skate the big hill we went to. nice to meet your parentz too...your Dad is a really cool guy, and he is a big asset when it comes to running race timing software.

I wish I had a crew to train with up here - instead of just a bunch of longboard stoners. It gets boring training alone all the time. You're lucky to have The Weez to ride with!

Glenn - thanx for the course sets and toe stops.

WR - getting faster all the time...can't wait to hear the Woodward report.

TP - nice photos.

Later,
