March 23 Wednesday
The session started out bad (Birdwell took a slam...ramp covered in pollen....etc) and got worse from there. About an hour into skating just as we were warming up, it started raining. It was a quick rain but soaked everything. We waited around for it to dry. Just as we were drying the ramp, it started raining again. By 7:30, we gave up and went home. We will fight another day.

April 13 Wednesday
Birdwell was out of town on a conference trip to Austin, but that did not stop the usual crowd from meeting up for a session. The night was more laid back than usual which was a nice change of pace leading into a weekend full of planned sessions (ie. that means no one tried to kill themselves so they could skate this coming weekend haha).
