Late Skate Report for 19 Dec 2001 Merry Christmas to all skaters.

This is a short report just for the Photos as I ran out of time to add the report earlier.

Tonight being a very busy time with work commitments (parties) for many we had to do without the leadership of David and the tailender sweep of Phil so Bill once again led us on a merry chase.

After a slow start waiting for Isabelle to get her new skates adjusted we all started off.

As it was close to Xmas he decided on a touristy route so off to Martin Place we went. We skated around the big Xmas tree and then off to the entertainment strip where the pedestrian traffic was a bit much so we took off to Pitt St (and those in the know went to Castlereagh St - to ride with the traffic rather than against it).

Things get a bit hazy here as it is so long since this skate but we ended up back at Harris St for a Casino run and Ben, Damien & I stopped for a drop in on the Old Casino car park ramp.

When we got to Pyrmont Bridge (yes late after our detour) we were told that Pontoon was closed for a private function so we didn't even go down but stopped for a few stair rides at the top of the bridge entrance (I have attached a short video of Damien riding the stairs in the images. It is a bit dark and about 500K in size so be aware when downloading. It will probably work best if you save it to file and play from there). We left here and went to the Hilton for a nice smooth run and the newly discovered ramp run then back to the car.

It was here we finally caught up with some of the others only to find out that Pontoon did let us in for a drink so we missed out on a Chrissy drink with all the others.

As it is now after Xmas I am writing this I hope you all had a nice and safe Xmas and didn't indulge too much.

See you all next year.

Keep skating,
Phil A

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.
