Contest Report: 11th Annual Kentucky Battle

It all started back on April 20, 2000. In a blur, I had way too much fun, but I watched the edit Tri made. I think he won, but it was originally between Louisville and Lexington. I think we all realized that wouldn't work. So, now fast-forward many sessions, parties, and prizes later. Here we are in our 11th year and can now say we are a legit contest. People from all over have been to Lexington or Louisville simply for some bad-ass street skating in some of the spots that we here call home. I can't tell you how to throw a skate contest, because I honestly change the format every year. I test one way and regardless of success or failure, we determine a winner, and everyone either parties or goes home. That is how it has always been, until this year...

Competition Report: A Day In The Mitten 2011

Last years write up of the comp was done by Brian Weis while sitting in an E.R. waiting room after destroying his leg tying a huge transfer off a Kinker. So I thought it only fit that I'm writing this years comp report as I sit in the E.R. waiting room with a broken hand.
