Thursday at Maloof Money Cup: Check-In and Course Construction

Posted on Friday, June 4, 2010 by Rob

It was a long hectic day of behind the scenes work for the contest involving finalizing how we're making the format as simple and easy to understand as possible, meeting with Fuel TV guys, making sure our planning over the last few months actually makes sense now that we've seen the real course, and other general admin bid'niss type stuff. On top of all that, a few skaters checked in today where I make sure sponsors and other info are correct and shoot a headshot photo for the site. Tomorrow during practice all day, it will be a ton more. It's nearly midnight and the workday is still not over. It's all worth it to witness some damn good skating this weekend. Not to mention sneaking in a session on the course before leaving.

Looks like Mark Waters is already partying at noon. He's shooting photos and writing about things online all weekend. Sounds like a real comfortable partying position to me.
The course is still under construction on Thursday afternoon.

It's super dusty from concrete cutting and sanding. People are giving the completed parts of the course a full bath.

Porpe and I got to take a break and skate the course for a bit. Things get going at 1pm on Saturday. It's all practice up until then.
