Post Madness in the Mitten II 04/17/2010
It's that time again boys and girls! Last year we had a blast with the first annual Madness in the Mitten. 31 registered racers about 10 casual riders showed up for the leg and lung burning 4.1 mile push race, followed by an awesome outlaw slide jam and killer garage session. Now it's time to do it all over again again! And this time, we'll be adding Slalom to the list of activities.

Where: Lansing, MI http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=%20...%2048912&z=16 (Ranney Skate Park)
When: April 17th and 18th, 2010
What: MADNESS IN THE MITTEN II

$10 entry - cash awarded to top 3 push racers.

Itinerary: – (subject to change)

Saturday April 17th
10:00 Meet at Ranney/Registration
11:00 Push Race begins
12:30 Meet at Ranney, Prizes awarded
1:00 Lunch
1:30 Caravan to Slide Hill
2:00 - 5:00 Outlaw Slide Jam real laid back not a contest or anything.
6:00 Barbecue at Jays, maybe a few cones for fun
8:00 - 11' ish Garage Skate/Garage Bomb Cicuit #2
Since we are all gathered up, if there is enough interest the garage skate will become a mini-series of races for those who want to. (similar to Garage Bomb Circuit #1).

Kick back at Jay's house, everyone welcome to stay. limited room, so bring tents just in case.

Sunday April 18th
11:00 Hybrid Slalom,$5, location TBD. Jam Style 3 or 4 runs.
1:00 Tight Slalom,$5,location TBD. Likely single lane, maybe dual.

Right now the slalom is an OUTLAW SESSION. We are currently seeking permission for the primary hill from all of the neighbors and the city, but If the city requires money and deposits, it will remain an outlaw, but hopefully with the permission of those living on the street. I will update soon. We have plenty of streets in a few different towns that we routinely set up timers and stuff on with no problems, so there will definitely be cones and times put down somewhere. Worst case scenario, we will travel 20 minutes to a country road in Mason. I will post hill updates as they come. The event is not sanctioned, and the MAIN FOCUS is for everyone to have a good time. We expect some good local competition to be there and we hope it can serve as a season warm-up for Midwest slalomers, and maybe convert a few skaters from saturday into slalomers. The fastest Hybrid slalomer who has never attended an ISSA event will win a deck.

Sign-up - I have written ncdsa.com and hope to host the registration there. Entry fees will not be due until the day of the event, but please sign-up so we know approximately how many people to plan for, and so travelers can see how many fellow riders are expected. I will post updates as the sign up sheet becomes available.

You know I'm there. Last year was off the chain and really set the stage for the Michigan scene. I can't wait.
