Brook Run October OS Sessions
Tuesday Oct 16, 2007 - session night
It had been 3 weeks since I was back in Atlanta (working at home and trip to Vegas). Seems that things did not slow down in my absence. In fact, this tuesday was busier than any I had been to before! Great session with good folks. I thought it would take me a long while to get use to the bowl again, but surprisingly, I was back to doing everything like I had never left. I was pretty stoked on that...not to mention just being able to skate that great bowl again and skating with friends!

Wednesday Oct 17, 2007 - Old School Session night
I had forgotten how burly Wednesday nights can get. You better come ready to skate! No playing around in this session. The usual crew was out again...Zack, Shawn and Chris Coffman, Load (sporting a new cast for his broken wrist that I saw him receive the last session I was at), Jimmy O'Brien, Roobs, Wes, Alf (who hadn't been in a while), and Sushi. Also making an appearance was Thomas Taylor and Jerimiah (sp?). It was a pretty amped session overall. Folks were trying new tricks and lines all over the place. However, Roobs paid the price this night. First, coming out of a simple backside double-trucker in the shallow, he was somehow leaned too far forward and fell straight down in a pile...no hands out....pancaked onto his hip, shoulder and worse, the side of his head. He shook that off after a bit and then took another run. In that one, he did a backside 50-50 over the deathbox, came back towards the hip, bailed a sweeper and jumped out towards the waterfall. Somehow, he got twisted though and again slammed to the same side and smacked his head AGAIN almost in the same spot. After that, it was break time for that whole crew. Roobs never did come back to the session....and I don't blame him! Ouch! Overall, though, another great night at Brook Run.
