Okay, so I've ended up being off-grid due to laptop failure, but I'm back now! Thank you for your patience, I fully intend to buy a new laptop to replace the last one at some point soon.
Firstly, Well done William Ballard for being registered and paid up before the 1st of October! You get the bearings and tee from SMB bearings.
Secondly, The bouncy castle is booked, but it may be one of three designs. If it's the Disney princess one I make no apologies.
Thirdly, I'd like to welcome a new sponsor: Sexdecks. They'll have a stand and some boards to try out as well as a deck up for grabs as a prize. Check out the writeup in the next few days on the blog.
Fourthly, There's still plenty of places left. You can pay on the day, but signing up and paying up beforehand helps everything go smoother.
Fifthly, The package from Original skateboards got rescheduled to tomorrow. So expect a blog update then.
Lastly/sixthly, A quick rundown of the schedule for the weekend can be found below while I sort the graphic for it. The official slalom plan will be up soon and I'll post that as and when.
