Default 2010 Montreal SkateLog Team

Any word yet on the skate log team for the 24 hour Montreal event?

I'm trying to plan the trip and would like to hook up with a team.

Thanks
Larry

Default Team SkateLog 2010?

Larry,

Yes you are recruited. We met at Team Rainbo indoor practice and you are on the team. We are up to six. We are looking for four more. Anyone out there in the SkateLog forum universe can join. Just add your name. Know up front that we are a fitness team, there to skate our best and finish, but not a competitive elite team.

1. t.grosspietsch (Captain) (2007, 2008, 2009 team)
2. pkgraff (2009 team)
3. bjoyce (2009 team)
4. chi_crd (2009 team)
5. GustavoAMH (2008 team)
6. larrydk

As soon as there are enough members on the 2010 SkateLog 24 Hour Montreal team I will sign you guys up, so be sure to let me know when you think you have the minimum number of skaters you think you'll need. I'll cover the registration fee and the cost of team shirts.

Go Team SkateLog!!!

Default Montreal Video

SkateLog team - We are looking forward to seeing you again this year and I hope that we can be in the same paddock like last year.

I posted a video of Skater's Quest's experience at last year's event. I hope it helps to find the last 3 or 4 skaters for your team. The video is here-

Default Team SkateLog Status

Intrepid,

Video is cool, thank you, I'll share it. Sharing a paddock again would be great too. Gotta love Skater's Quest and the barista & espresso machine.

We are getting closer. Larrydk's wife Trish is joining us, that makes eight. Brian from Texas may join us. If he does that is nine. Anyone else? We take team members from anywhere. One year we had a skater from Israel. If you are looking to skate the 24 Hours and can't find a team we are your team.

1. t.grosspietsch (Captain) (2007, 2008, 2009 team)
2. pkgraff (2009 team)
3. bjoyce (2009 team)
4. chi_crd (2009 team)
5. GustavoAMH (2008 team)
6. larrydk
7. Carvell (2007, 2008 team)
8. Trish
9. Brian from Texas? (maybe)
10.

FYI

I did some flight searching and found round trip flights from Philadelphia to Montreal for $320.

So If you can get to Philly cheap, this is an option.

I'll keep my ears open, but 9 skaters should work fine anyway.

As for me, I don't even know for sure all the people on my team. I do know that the team does have the wright stuff and there should be some wondrous women also on the team this year.

Any of you Chicago people driving? Anyone willing/able to haul me along? Pretty sure I can get there at least. Anyone got a hotel floor for me at the race?

I'd love to go... got the time off. Just hard up for cash, gotta do it cheap.
