Is it the skatelite from Corby?

Hmmmmm that skatelite looks familiar. One man's poison and all that.

The current state of things... 2 comps left - Mount Hawke Vert Jam and Blockless Combat. Remember that Blockless Combat in Birmingham will be a 2 DAY EVENT! It will likely be heats on Saturday and finals on Sunday and will be epic!

If you've been hiding under a rock, a reminder that Corby is cancelled due to the vert ramp going missing. I'm sure no one would have taken it down intentionally because that would be stupid.

What!!? Where’s the Corby vert gone!!?😂😂 does anyone know what they’ve done with the templates? Could use them to extend Hawke!!

Even more stupid if they didn't actually have the money to replace it with something else that customers coukd ride. Oh wait...

Yes you read it right! Game on! The comp is running as planned at St Neots. If it rains it looks like it will be light and we'll have a mob with towels at hand. If we have to cut short, we'll use heat scores. Fingers crossed the Met office is right and it's just overcast!

Yes yes yes yes yes. See you tomorrow 🙂

Yeah Lee Blackwell I only skated with Steve at Peterborough on a Thursday evening but always had a word and such a nice bloke and some fluid mini ramp moves!

I think this is rad simply because last year was rained off, for a lot of people that come it’s not just about the skating but remembering someone we loved and lost so just being there on his grounds together means a lot ❤️ Steve Bayless❤️🛹🛹🛹

As usual, the weather is not making it easy for us. Met office say OK, everyone else saying rain. May be an improving picture though and the rain is light so we're gonna give it a little while until we make a decision.
If you're traveling, the backup is a jam in Birmingham as its a central location so it'll still be worth coming! It won't be scored in the series but we might have a couple of prizes we can use.

⚠️⚠️⚠️NOTE: Vans have failed to send prizes (again) so we are a bit short 😢

Can't decide wether to drive up or not! Eeeeek

Ffs

Both sound loads of fun

🙃

Birmingham is central but not the easiest or fastest for everyone to get to at all that’s why I said caterham. It’s max of 2-3hrs for everybody obviously not Cornwall. Creation gets picked Cos all you guys live inside an hour even half hour from it 😂 Skaterham is the easiest if we are thinking of everyone. Plus it be good to put money into them as well as it’s needed. ( and I’m not saying that Cos I skate it Cos just lately I skip skating it as it’s been doing my head in lol it’s also 2hrs min drive lol)

Me and George O'Neill are on are way .

Any update please? St Neots I'm coming, brum no go so need to know ASAP

Met office say weather is shifting for the better. Also it sounds like decision was made on it already as I herd people started to head to Birmingham this morning.

Warning is only until lunchtime x

Is it Brum on Sunday
