Gary,

I like where they say you "stunned" everyone by making it down the hill.

I'm gonna get you Fluitt.

glad you caught that Joe. I was going to quote your daughter's reaction to your 2nd place finish, but they wouldn't give me the space.

just rode my ramp for the first time- with no rear wheel stop, hand pulls, or clamps to hold the sections together; and it still rocked my world. Awesome.

Photographically speaking, though, that photo of you is a very striking image--well lit, dynamically composed, clear face shot, etc.

I bet Dan G. is happy with it, too.
Never fails that the biggest kook in the race gets the cover shot in the paper.

Save the Date!

Post by willy demis » Mon May 17, 2010 5:30 am

Things are really shaping up with my potential event in late August! I've had numerous emails/phone calls with city officials, skatepark managers, soapbox derby associations, and so forth. We are in progress on a face-to-face meeting to hammer out the details and set a date.

Potential itinerary:
Day 1-
* Park slalom at a concrete park less than 1 mile from the SBD track
* Slalomcross event at the SBD track

Day 2-
* TS/HS/GS events

I'm working on the weekend of Aug 21st or Aug 28th. There is already the Ft. Wayne, IN event on Aug 14th, so I am leaning towards the later of the dates. This is going to be cool! More official info to come...

Have fun in Colorado! I had already booked my airmiles flight (hard to get/change) to Europe before the dates were confirmed and fly 17th June so will miss out. And my flight back is just after Antrim so will miss that too.
But st Louis was a fun race.

Oregon State Games

Post by Pat Chewning » Wed Jun 16, 2010 4:12 pm

Weather looks good for the weekend -- partly sunny and 70F predicted.

Received a HUGE box of helmets and a couple of complete skateboards from RAZOR to sponsor the kids races.

Field of racers is shaping up nicely with Richy, Brad, Stryker, Kramer, Ravitch, Jonny Miller, Skip, Kevin D, Tay Hunt, and the other usual suspects from CA, WA, and OR

In case anyone missed it: SATURDAY's EVENTS START AT 2pm (or so) and continue to 9PM due to a schedule conflict on the soap box derby hill. There is light until 9pm so no worries.

I hope I will see YOU at the 2010 Oregon State Games!

SEISMIC WORLD CUP

Post by Gary Fluitt » Sun Jun 20, 2010 5:07 pm

Seismic World Cup Update:

Because we believe we will have lots of time in the schedule, we are considering DOUBLE and possibly TRIPLE ELIMINATION racing at the SEISMIC WORLD CUP. This will give you the chance to race more racers in you class, and have more runs. Will be testing out the format in advance to have a solid test on how long it takes to run a triple elimination bracket of 8 racers.

Team races - Just for fun we will also be running teams as part of the regular eliminations. You will be named to a team after qualifying, and prior to racing, and the team with the highest number of points at the end of the day will win the Team race category. Not sure what criteria we're going to use for the categories, but it wont be regional, (e.g. COSS, SSS, Cascades, etc.), and likely not MFG (e.g. Pavel, Roe, etc.). Open to ideas on categorization.

Grudge Matches will be encouraged after racing is concluded. These will be $1 a race per racer, all the money goes into a pot that we're going to donate to Judi Oyama & Gary Holl's Board Rescue (boardrescue.org)

Ok. I see what you are talking about now.

I've deleted users regularly since becoming a Mod in '03. It's either spammers or skaters who won't use their real name. Some of you have got the PM. Three days and no change and ZAP! Outta here. So it's easy for me to understand why there are 1498 registered users but the profile number is over 1600+.

This is GREAT news for a noobie racer like myself.

So if I decide to pony up the registration $$$, at least I'll get more than two runs per discipline just to finish DFL. (That is if I don't DQ every run ;) )

Hey Gary, you might want to try ZERO ELIMINATION racing like we just did at the Oregon State Games (for the slalomcross). Here are the results:

Notice that nobody is eliminated. Notice also some exciting race pairings as Kevin Delaney takes on John Ravitch, Jordan Houtari, and Richy Carrasco to move from 3rd to 1st place.

Basically works like this:

2-run qualifying.

1-run pairings (top of pair chooses lane)

Pairings done 1-2 3-4 5-6 etc.

Winner move up one complete pair
Loser moves down one complete pair.

In the finals, you are racing for places 1-2 3-4 ... etc.

All races are more evenly matched than in the elimination bracket style where you have 1st place head-to-head with 32nd place.

Isn't this ladder bracketing? The DHB used to do that at their jam sessions.

Yeah, but it was coming from you so there ya' go!

(When it's right there, lined up in the sights and big as a full moon I gotta take the shot. It's just part of my manly essence.)
