Default Good luck to all skating Squiggy!

I wanted to wish everyone who is skating the marathon or half-marathon tomorrow in Tampa at Squiggy the best of luck!! Hopefully the wind will die down and we'll be hearing about lots of personal bests.

And to skateloggers who have flown in for the event, hope your trip down was smooth. Hubby Kevin and his teammates missed their connecting flight last night and only arrived in Tampa around noontime today instead of last night. His other teammates, including Nikko (who some of you know), ended up in Tampa over 6 hours late last night.

And to organizers and fellow skateloggers Jessica and Birgit - best of luck to both of you as well!! Although I couldn't be there personally to support the event this year, I think I speak for many who applaud your willingness to step up to the plate and help another skating event to grow rather than go by the wayside!! Hopefully I can get there next year Have a couple margaritas tomorrow night ladies and celebrate - kudos to you both!!!

Julie

Default Kudos for everyone who made this Squiggy so Great

Thanks Jessica, Birgit and all the volunteers, sponsors and participants for making this such a special and great event! Skate events of such high quality don't just "roll of a truck" for us to enjoy. Countless hours of planning and taking care of the numerous details leading up to, during, and following the event must be attended too and they were. Thanks too to
Mark, who was their "right-hand-man" doing "whatever" when they thought of something that was needed. He not only delivered, but rolled to a great marathon time as well. Strong show everyone.

My Squiggy "highlight" was (No, not my skating) but the chance to know so many SLF members better. Thanks to you all for making the event so special for the "ole man".

LezSk8!

Default Squiggy - a home run!!

Congratulations to Birgit, Jessica, and all the volunteers for making it happen in a BIG way! SO many new & improved things: Chip timing for the time trials, half, and full marathon - that's a biggie! Addition of a half-marathon! Age group awards! Standing start to both races (vs the grossly unfair rolling start of previous years!); top quality T-shirts! Great announcer (the indoor skating coach - sorry forgot his name but he did a superlative job); flawless execution! Free massages; good refreshments; great lineup of drawing prizes; AND RECORD TURNOUT!! I'm probably forgetting something but anyway, way to go Birgit & Jessica and everyone who pitched into help. Birgit's trademark sense of humor kept us well entertained as well.

But yes I and squiggyclassicinline.com was served with a civil lawsuit from the former organizer Dec. 28 2007 about copyright infringement, it was filled "pro se" and filled in Federal Court. I have a lawyer and the lawsuit is in "discovery process" and then it will go to court with a jury. When that is, I have no idea.

One thing I will say though is that I have all the legal documents and those are public records, so if anybody wants to read the premises of the case, I'll send you the files. In those files is also my plead/viewpoint/arguments.

What I will not say is any details and what I think of this and that - yes I have a very clear viewpoint on this - but I will not make it a discussion on a board that is about skating. The lawsuit is filed and my lawyer and the person that filed it against me are taking care of it.

So please board, I know this is just too exciting to discuss here in the midst of winter, where lots of us can't skate. But I beg to you that stop the speculations online and just contact me in person if you have any questions.
As long as this is in "discovery" with the lawyers any discussion/speculation etc is actually not helping me nor the race.

I had hoped that it would not go public, but after this series of emails that has been sent - I guess it has So please let's stop this discussion, let's concentrate on what we are here for, namely to skate and discuss skating.

I will promise that I will let you guys know the outcome of the case, but let the lawyers and courts do their job.

But thanks for all the support and I promise that I, Jessica and Jim will do our outmost to make it a very very good event.

Ok so more than a year ago I promised to tell the story when it was out of the court system and today I can say happy and all that

I WON
I WON
I WON

I will put up a press release as soon as my lawyers are done with it - so for know all I'll say is that the case was for a 7 person jury in the Federal Court in Tampa and let me say it one more time

I WON
I WON
I WON

More very soon!!!

And thanks to you all for the amazing support both I and Jessica and Squiggy Classic Inline have been shown through this past year.

Thanks I owe you all a huge big hug!!! Come collect next time you see me!!!


ohh and btw we have Squiggy Classic Inline 2009 in just a very few days - come and skate and have fun!!
