Skate Report Wed 21 Apr 2004

Tonight was Chantelle’s last night with Sydney Bladers for this year and we wanted to show her some of the sights of Sydney and wow didn’t we!

We started with Hyde Park and up Oxford St for a run down Foveaux St. After regrouping at the bottom we headed through Central tunnel, where they still haven’t fixed the escalator, and through to Darling Harbour car park where our runs were interrupted by the men on the golf carts.

By squeezing in another run I and a few others missed the group going up behind Darling Harbour while we went around the front. Meeting at Pyrmont Bridge we all took off to Harris St where we had a quick run down the Casino Hill. At the bottom everyone took off around the new waterfront development but I just had to have another run down the hill.

Bill, Ben & I had about 3 more runs before we joined everyone at the pub (It’s a shame the Cargo Bar no longer give us the warm welcome we had become used to).

On our way back to the car someone asked if we were going to skate Wynyard and that changed the whole night.

We did skate Wynyard and the Ben said we should try this new building up near the Rocks so we skated up there and had about 3 runs down this car park before we got it right so then we had a couple more.

We then felt a need to take Chantelle across the Quay for a bit of culture and skated the Opera House car park where it got very spooky as the lights were turned out about 2 thirds of the way down. We were lucky they left a few lights on because I think it would have been verry werry dark!

When we got out of the lift in the Foyer all the lights were out and as we walked up to the doors we were challenged from a dark doorway. Protesting our innocence as just getting lost we hastily made our way back out the IN.

Boy didn’t that make it a late night (one of my photos says it was taken a 1:08am!)

Thanks to everyone for a great skate. Hope to see you all next week.

Get well soon Lou.

Keep skating

Web site Design and Data based Features by

Sydney Bladers is not run by any one, no one owns it, no one is responsible for it, this web site is designed to help this sorry bunch of bladers who meet up every Wednesday night for a great time, no meeting times are planed by anyone, it is just a freak coincidence that up to 70 people meet up at the same place and time every Wednesday night and head off on the same direction some where around the city for 2 hours.

The web designer of this site (me) is not responsible if you do something stupid because of this web site, if you do I will plead insanity, I have many people on the city skate that will hold proof to this in court if need be. You read this information at your own risk, if you do something stupid then you are an idiot and don't come crying to me about it. If you take this disclaimer too seriously or think its stupid then you have no scene of humor and are probably a very boring person.
