Last night was the private opening party for all the old school skaters to get together hang out, eat and drink, check out the boards, tell stories and catch up with one another. It was an awesome night and so great running into skaters I have not seen since we competed together back in the late 70's - early 80's.

I was able to take pictures in here thanks to Dale - all the other rooms were guarded by security guys and no photos were allowed - except the one I shot off fast of Kevin and I in front of his board before they caught me!
It was the best night ever!
