If It Rolls, Floats or . . .

And so, with raindrops threatening The Ville, it was decided, after much indecision, that Ollie's would indeed be the place to be for the much anticipated and long overdue mass Cretins session. This was originally proposed by OMP as a birthday party for Skidz and the Fly, but since the Fly couldn't make it due to injury and Skidz's bday was several days prior anyway, it just turned into what the original idea was an excuse for anyway,  the chance to get together and rage with your brothers of the mighty stuntwood.

OMP arrived first with a couple dudes from his neck of the woods who's names escape me, followed by myself, Adam and Philthy, and finally Skidz and Jr. Not the full crew by any means but a decent showing nonetheless, you take what you can get.  Nikoli crapped out due to rampant illness and was surely missed, but managed to deliver this eMac to Skidz to bring to yours truly. The session should have been billed as a bday party for the Fly, Skidz and myself. THANX!

We started out skating the micro mini and as I was about to set up to drop in,  this barely teenage girl on the deck opposite me says: "Hey, I'm just going to cross over ok?"  Sure no problem.  She bonks in and flies over the opposite deck, transferring to the wedge that leads to the street course so she can go work on her kickflip hip transfers. HUH??? Later she's up on the 13' vert ramp doing bs airs and rocknrolls and the like. Sheeesh. Her name is Erin and she RIPS. 

The session raged on as expected, to the bowl and the mega mini of course. Phil was on a mission and was crushing it with his usual gnarly high speed 50/50s, indy nosepicks, lipslides, and even nutted up for a bs boneless.  I got practically zero footage as I forgot to charge the battrees (as my grandfather would say). 

After skating practically an hour past our pink wristband cutoff OMP, Skidz, Jr., and Myself headed to the local Mexi joint for a fartastic feast, and entertained each other with talk of travel to foreign and domestic lands, the state of the Union, housewarming soirees, and the Golden Rule.

    Well done Gimpy. Well done indeed. So very sorry I missed it. I have (2) 3-day weekends coming and plan to make up for sick time!

    Looks like you finished your "internet business" much sooner than I would have expected. I had an awesome time sk8n with you (as always) and I cain't wait till we do it again (as Always!)

    I'll let this linger and post up some Widow Maker Photos. I e-mailed 'em out earlier, just in case you can't wait to see 'em.

    Great time, probably won't skate ollies again til winter. It was surprisingly not very slick. Spring is here, many sessions are gonna happen. We need a Cretin bus and a sober driver so we can have more night sessions at the park. Concrete is more fun with coolers. The Widow Maker lights up good at night also.

    Phil's right!

    I've had some epic sessions in D-ville at night. Skated with SAlba at night there!

    Maybe we could plan a night time session before April 24????
