Well it's the last day of August which cheerfully means that's pretty much it for summer 2011.
How was it for you?
I'm not going get involved in full 2011 look back here, that's best left for another post or update on rem central.
Instead despite the summer coming to an end it doesn't mean all the events are done and dusted for this year. Quite the opposite, there are still a couple weekends of camping and competing at centres left before 2011 is over.
This weekend coming we have the next round of Cream Teas and Jam at Surf the turf up there in that there lake district. Saturday they have got a bit go-kart racing in the morning and then some banked slalom action us wheeleyboardists in afternoon. Then on sunday expect all the normal BFC jibbery fun and prizes.
The following weekend it's time to head even further north to Scotland for the Brakeboard weekender. The plan so for is Perth track friday night, then on Saturday pay visit to the 2005 ATBA downhill track at Dunkeld and sunday all FB say's something big. My money's on going and picking off a proper mountain somewhere. We might even be looking at the highest mountainboard decent in the UK!
And finally to round the 2011 event season off we have the mega event at Bugsboarding on the second weekend of October. A weekend where you get two events and AGM in one. On the 8th (saturday)you have the last round of this years of cream teas and Jam. All served up on Bug's many, many sick jibs and freestlyie hit's. When it dark the big screen gets lit on what must the third ATBjunkies film festival.
This year ATBjunkie have come up with the cunning plan for all those who fancy seeing now fast you can put a film together. 24 hours of madness, the plan is you get the brief friday night and it has to be all done and dusted ready for viewing saturday night during the film festival. So you are going to have to quick and original. Which is going to be tough. After all it's going pretty tempting to stay at bugs and film but lets face it there is going to be a few other crews thinking the same thing.
And on sunday it's down to business and the ATBAUK AGM. Which if you have got something to say, wont to play part in helping the sport grow or just feel it will be interesting to see what other people thoughts about how the sport is run. Then it is well worth going along you never know there might be free tea and biscuits.
Don't forget just because the events have finished boarders wont be getting together. I'm sure the once a month freeride meets will be happening threw out the winter again this year.
While I''m writing about riding free or other wise, then we are planning some freeride master classes. So if you wont to brush up your freeriding technique or just want some hints and tips on how to improve your riding. Then come along it's just for freerider's. So watch this space as they say.
