This year Brampton Comp was bigger than ever. Being the fourth time around, I have been able to work out a lot of other issues. And luckily for me, I had the additional help of Corey Grantham to handle promotion and marketing. I’m extremely happy with the way things turned out this year, and I couldn’t have done it without his help. My RollToronto guys also put in a bunch of effort, and came up with the idea of adding a grindbox to the event. Steve Kiley put in a lot of work to design and construct a perfect, solid, grindbox.

On May 16th here in Toronto, we were fortunate enough to have one of the warmest days of the season. Brampton Comp 4 went down without a hitch, and I’m sure almost everyone had a good time. This year we registered with WRS, giving the top 10 in pro a place in the official standings. I was amazed at the level of skating this year, and can’t wait for next year’s event. Here are the official results:

Amateur Event
1st Pierre Olivier
2nd Alex Armbruster3rd Adam Petrov
4th Tyler Hantor
5th Jeremy Quirion

Pro Event
1st Mike Lukewich
2nd Guy Crawford
3rd Jerry Butler

5th Kevin Lapierre
