Skate Report Wed 12 October 2005
12/10/2005 - Terminal Velocity aka Van Night.

On the way into town I was listening to Van Morrison sing, “Can I just have one more moon-skate with you, my skates”. Then on arrival I met up with the vanguard of CitySkate & promptly jumped into the Van. For tonight was Van Night – and what a vantastic night it was.

Sean was the ringmaster. His advanced scouting sorties had indelibly inked on his brain a treasure map of downhill assaults that would be attempted tonight.

A full platoon of 10 soldiers went forth & luckily all 10 came back alive.

Vaucluse was the obvious first destination.
Why?..............because Vaucluse starts with a V, just like Van. And yes, it is true that the real estate prices are so high in Vaucluse because of its proximity to an abundance of great downhill runs. Two different routes were bombed about four times each with wave after wave of skaters unleashing their lethal firepower. Then it was time for Van Brake Hill (aka Heart Break Hill for all you City to Surfers who are obviously going in the WRONG direction). Two runs with a strong tailwind down this twisting, bumpy, concrete beast had everyone baying for another KILL.

The next destination was Bronte. Ah, poor unsuspecting Bronte. Another four downhill bombing missions were launched leaving the place in ruins. Thank Christ no one lost it. I reckon that drop down into Bronte Beach would have produced grazing equivalent to the meltdown of bodies in that scene at the end of the original Indiana Jones movie when the Nazis opened the Ark of the Covenant.

Then we hooted down some road from the top of Bronte towards Clovelly. Then a new raid was launched on Clovelly, perpendicular to the previous run, that had us end-up gazing into the Tasman.

Then it was on to Alison Rd at Randwick. Where Bill deliberately slammed the Van door, trapping & crushing two of Phil A’s four remaining digits on his left hand. After the first aid was administered - a gollop of spit & wrapping with a dirty handkerchief - two high speed bombing raids took place down the road towards Coogee.

Aaawwwww - what a manic night!

Sucked in Mark……you missed out. This would have been sooooooooo right up your alley.

And a big THANK YOU to our sponsor for the use of the Van.

Are you READY??

Get Ready for the
5th Annual
Biggest City Skate EVER !

Wednesday 2 Nov 2005 is the date to put into your diaries to get your dancing skates out and get your friends revved up ready to go. Don't forget to make sure all your gear is working before the night.

Lets see if we can get a bigger turn out than last year (135 or so skaters). Maybe we can get over 200 this year. We should be able to do that if everyone brings along a couple of friends.

To all of you who used to come into the City regularly for a City Skate now is the time to check

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.
