However you wanna call it, I don't care.
It'll remain the same, but perhaps with a different cover...
Distinguish between Races, Events and all the other stuff around it, put it together again, mix it up, try to get sth new by calling it differently or combining or whatever. Look back and notice that it isn't sth new. Kill it, give it a revival and realize that it's still the same but it ain't...dream of it, wake up again..hum, I guess here we've been stuck, ain't we?

jeff's absolutely right...
know why?
it depends on the folks doing it,if the stoke comes across,we are doing a little video project here to show you folks why it's dead.

be a bit more patient and you'll see what's dead in slalomskateboarding.

It`s not dead, as long as the flame is burning. i don`t get into those ranking and status discussions and rule discussions, cause i give a shit !!!! skateboarding is something completely different for me .... and slalom skateboarding too. i know that we need some enthusiasts who take care and we need a few guidelines too but ..... puuuuuuhhh not its not so easy to handle.

a bowl or cone session with a few possessed is simpy great. too many rules and norms can take the fun out of it. most of us are old enough, too have learned from the past. all the germans for example know what happens, when authorities take care of us.

i`m not a contest shark, cause i dont have enough time and money and for me it`s even hard enough too find a good balance between the activities with my buddies and my family.

the only thing i know is, that i attend a race near my area, when there is time. i have GREAT WESTERN RACE 1 in april in my plans as well as HANNOVER !!!! statuses or points i dont know - fun factor - i think maximum. i hope we are not short before a having a desscode !!!!!!!!

NO ITS NOT DEAD !!!! .... there are enough infected people, that keep the flame burning - for sure !!!!!!!!

Don, David is writing from Paris, ... Allan, Lau, Celine, JS, VinZzz, Nat, H, Panda, Soizic, etc. etc. all riderz in their 20's, could have reacted the same, right here in Paris.
Isn't that the actual place where you see "dwellers" come out ? funny coincidence, isn't it ?

Rookies come out like mushrooms after the rain wherever the old dwarfs pea :D

So...Slalom is like a dead, incredibly gay, infectious, retard with a small flame coming from (insert favorite orafice).
Held and controlled by "dwellers" in underground Paris??

Well, I thought it was a myth... before I saw 340 rats creeping from the underground fountains with daggers between their teeth, thinking they were mad dogs from some other and warmer continent.

Wrong target unfortunately David, this is for Corky... Don thinks he is on NCDSA with the other males in mid-age crisis beating their chests: "Wowow, i'm so hard boiled, i'm so hard boiled".

i'd say Don and i have lots in common and we understand each other pretty well, we do not like to hide our feelings and opinion, as once expulsed and shared these don't hurt anymore (these don't hurt oneself anymore, actually...).

That goes for Don and i, but maybe we should care more of those who do not feel it quite correct to flame one another around so easy all the time, and therefore may experience more durable... moral discomfort.
