Skaterman (not)
Skate Report - Wednesday, November 21. And then there were 7. Where the hell did the other 90 people go? After a week of basking in the glory of the biggest Sydney City Skate EVER, 90 people found an excuse to stay home. Next week I expect to receive a note form the mothers of all those who didn’t turn up last night. If no authentic notes are forthcoming, or if the excuse is feable ( e.g. “Skaterman is a mummy’s boy & I don’t like him being out after dark – signed Skaterman’s mum”) then you will be forced to skate within earshot of Johnny for 2 consecutive skates. Now that the disciplinary matters have been settled, I can get on with the business at hand.

4 days of storms, power outages, property damage, high winds & continuing rain combined to put doubt in the minds of many would be skaters. Only a handful of hearty souls were prepared to brave the elements, that thankfully cleared up & dried the pavements just before skate time. Those of us who turned up had a blast. “We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition: And gentlemen in England now a-bed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.” – Henry V, ActIV, Scene iii.

Johnny led, followed by Graham, Helen, Florian, Bradley, Isabelle & myself.

Highlights: Graham’s fall at the start; my fall down some stairs (thank God for helmets!); Johnny’s jump off the shelter covering the George St escalator out of the Devonhire St tunnel; Johnny’s fall in Clarence St in front of moving traffic; Helen’s miscue of a speed bump at the Regent Hotel; Johnny backwards & Bradley forwards, riding the Opera House stairs; the foul-mouthed abuse from a security guard at the Opera House; Helen’s eloquent riposte of the security guard; & Johnny’s excitement in telling us how he had just had a chat with Keanu Reeves.

Tips for next week:
1. Florian, Isabelle, Bradley & Helen – learn to fall over;
2. The 90 people that were missing – turn up, or “That he which hath no stomach to this fight, Let him depart; his passport shall be made And crowns for convoy put into his purse: We would not die in that man's company That fears his fellowship to die with us.”

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.
