All of the D=Tour Guys and the NYC skaters came out to party and pull some amazing moves..

More like a Grass Roots Summer Fest - the Chris Edward's D=Tour has been crossing the country, bringing together Pro Skaters and Music - Bands - DJ's and local skate talent from all over! grind6.GIF - 46634 Bytes

It's one of the only rolling Tours that welcomes the 3 B's where space permits.
The Chelsea Piers would have normally been the ideal place - had the administrative staff been normal people - but they weren't and truthfully - they sucked.

Their inability to behave like professional adults who return phone calls and work with clearly stated contracts, was the primary reason that the WASN changed it's up coming Event to Riverside!!

It wasn't an easy decision because it caused a last minute ripple effect - leaving the WASN without a title sponsor for their August Event!! as in.. Jump Magazine bailed!
Jump said they were interested in supporting Women's sports .. but as it turns out - they were just into getting exposure on the Pier and - although they "felt bad"..

.. could care less about us!

Hey - It's Ok - Never ditz an opportunity that reveals the truth .. at least you find out who the real players are ..
So the WASN is now booked for Riverside Park - where the staff is human and truly interested in the love of the Extremes.

Mac.gif - 4675 Bytes And Mac Gear - has stepped up and taken title sponsor position from the heart! - They will be awarding the prizes for the winners coming out. Ya gotta give them credit - and everyone should come out and party August 5!!! .. (Right) Kelly Mathews takes the WALL in turn ..

But back to the Pier - despite the Gestapo security bullshit and few other annoying routines - we all had fun anyway and really cut it up!

One right after another (like a slide show) ..
