Evan Smith - wallie over to front crooks to fakie. Damn, the skating is amazing today and we just got started.
Youness Amrani is from Belgium. We first met him at AmsterDamn Am two years ago where he was killing it. Now he's in our hometown doing the same. He made this 5-0 360 flip clean in his first run. Then in his second run he made this one again although it's sketchy.
Vern Laird and his straight edge tattoos are in line for the open bar.
If you were in this crowd at the 99 Bottles show, thanks for coming to our crusty skateboard hut.
The decks during the bowl jam at the 99 Bottles Show were like a whole separate party.
Lako in the private party at Frosty's Dungeon.

Former SPoT Employee Club (FSEC) member, Brandon Bristol.
Del and A-Plus did a few songs during the 99 Bottles show.
Good thing I saw Del on Thursday when he was at the Skatepark because on Saturday, I was too hammered by the time he came on.
Both of these filmers are drinking, but only one puts his camera down when it's time to party. P-Stone is always with camera and brew.

That's it, I'm wasted. Let's call a cab and bounce like boobies. See you all in the morning.
Speaking of morning, I got here at 8am and found DJ Wade and Norman Woods still up from the night before. Norman was in the first heat Saturday and of course missed his run even though he was right here at the Park.
