A few quick notes:

PLEASE PULL IN FROM THE ENTRANCE AT THE TOP OF THE HILL. This is easy to figure out since the road leading to the spot is on a hill also. Pull in at the entrance where you see the red sign that says "The Firnsch School" and park in the big lot behind the building. The entrance at the bottom will be coned off. Reason being is if you pull in at the bottom, you'll have to drive up the road we are skating and there's a bit of a blind spot coming down the road. This will make things safer and easier. Yes, safer is a word. I could use 'more safe' but I operate on the outside of society. I'm a loner Dotty. A Rebel.

BE THERE BY 1PM!!! Its a good idea to be there by 1, just in case we get busted and have to move to a new spot. If you pull in and don't see us, check directly across the main road in the gray building's parking lot. The name of that building is Country Club Plaza. If you don't see anybody at either spot, we got busted and went to another spot, and you showed up too late. Cell is two zero one nine two five four zero four three. Don't call too late cause I be strippin in the evenings.

I also suggest bringing Water/Munchies with you. There is a CVS and a Subway a ways up the road, but the less we have people pulling in and out, the better.

Thanks and see you Saturday!

A note about the weather:

According to weather.com, its supposed to stop raining by 10am, and not start again till the evening. They had the same exact forecast last Saturday and I skated there all afternoon. The spot dries up fast. There's also a two tier empty garage around the corner thats skateable, and a giant one a way's up Rt. 4 that has an elavater, but also a bust factor.

I will be there regardless. I will be at the spot at 1pm.

If we get rained out, Since Bob Frias was the first one to mention weather, if your there you get a pie in the dick. Sorry man. That's just how we roll ;)

If we do get rained out, the garages can also be fun. I hope everybody comes and gives it a chance regardless, but I understand if you live far away and decide to bail.

Come give it a shot. Jersey weather changes constantly.

sent me this email:

KICKASS!!

I was so excited I couldnt sleep.....

Seriously.

Cat gave me a board. I got a helmet somewhere. Save me a bat and that should do it then!

Guess I'll bring a towel for the carnage....

Pool wrestling is so much easier to fall down in.....

Lemme know if you need me to bring anything to help out (fake blood, water baloons, penisbutter sandwiches...)

Lookin forward to it!


AS YOUR ATTORNEY, I SUGGEST YOU ATTEND.

I was there for the re-awakening of Slalom, which I chronicled in Concrete Wave Vol 1 #4 [dig em out boys, it's the DC Crew article].



It will be good to see you brother. And good to be seen by all. It's been faaaar too long.

It may not look it now, but the forecast actually got a little better, with the sun scheduled to make a mild appearance at 10 till about 4. Worse comes to worse we might have to run the Catamaran in a lighting storm at the end. Which makes it that much more hardcore.

Hope to see you guys soon.

Now an even better question, is what the f#@k am I doing up at 6am?

I know I speak for Ron when I say that the 5 hour ride to Joisey was worth it.


Didn't get many runs but it was good to see our young Noah and My how Nick has grown!


Good to put faces to names like Glenn Chapman and Fatboy among others.


I'm ready for another session already.



That place is IDEAL!

Thanks again to everyone who came out and made this happen. There wasn't a single person who didn't help out in some way. This wasn't one person's event, it was everyone's event and it showed. It says alot when all you have to do is pick a date and find a spot, and everyone comes out and just makes a race happen for the pure enjoyment and love of it, no shwag or prize money needed. (although I'm sure the Hot Pockets were a factor ;))

I think Fatboy has the results and will post them whenever he takes a break between unloading all those boards from his car, may be a few days.

Lets do it again soon. Shalom Hill is always open. Next time no pedo fun swimmies for a prize. Maybe we will upgrade the prizes too. How do you guys feel about sleeveless cut off demin jackets with airbrushing on the back? ;)

Thank you Rob. Great time! Nice spot, but I noticed there are security camera everywhere. We need to keep this spot for Sabath only skating.

Nice to see Bob after so many years. Noah broke the NJDB curse, congratulations. Glen Chapman is lways the nicest guy, glad he made that long drive.

Got plenty to say, but Dan Parish gets my MVP award. It had rained earlier in the day and there was a river unning across the course. Dan took a carpet out of his car and used it like a sandbag to stop the running water. We would have had to change venues otherwise.

SO happy to see all my buddies and be outside after a long winter.

Mary is fearless! Just needs some practice and gear.

Gerry - your kids were great!

They had so much fun, it was infectuous. Most of the boards they were riding were mine and I couldn't be happier to see them riding!

At one point I overheard one of the say "Gee Dad, your friends are AWESOME!"

Gerry,

Please let Liam and Rory know they won the kid's division. Prizes will come in the mail.

All my friends,

Thanks for taking Liam and Rory under your collective wing. Liam got home and said to his mom, "I have discovered the awesomness that is skateboaring. I have found my calling."

I wish we could do that to 100 kids at a time, but that whole "stranger danger" thing keeps getting in the way.

WOW! I didn't even know I had a time!



Not bad for 2 runs on a course i never rode I guess.



That's my story and I'm sticking to it.



Cat is very cool, and in the tradition of every drummer I've either jammed with or met, she is just a little batshit crazy like them all.
