Erick brought his roller racers to the pulpit to make us grimace and grin. Cheryl took the women's roller racing championship winning all of her races. Bruce took the mens title with a win over Chaz.
There were some great races, surprising/impressive results, a dead-even heat between Cindy H and Marguerite, and a relay race with "pre-porn" drinks that was epic. It was a great day to be Bruce.
The post race rink-dogs/buffet hit the spot. Erick let anybody try riding the rollers on two wheels. Chaz and Paul seemed to love it. James was a natural. It freaked me out. There were crashes and broken spokes to show for our efforts (sorry Erick). Julia, Duke, Leo and Dan were late shows but joined us at the exchange soiree.
The Tar Heels won. Again.
Thanks to all the folks that helped make this a great day: DSwat made all the rink-dogs, Paul, Evan, and David made the audio/visual a reality, Cindy and Ben led the clean-up in the kitchen, Curt took the relay race video (best video ever), BAC for sponsoring the Festival, everybody who brought delicious food and Shaun for his beautiful pottery contributions. I thought the day was awesome. JS
