The most memorable was Tom Penny at the Munster bowls in 1996 when they boycott the contest.?  He was pretty high and looking at a porno by a car and he had a paper bag full of wheels.

I was at Munster that year, i think that was the time that i saw Penny at the club everyone used to go to - the Odeon and he was completely off his face. I remember Berra being a total baby at the bowls too.

i met olly todd and benny fairfax at a skate competition and we all tried to do flamingos together(yes a very wioerd situation)
at the same competiton i met stu graham and he was super chill and was still skating even though he had got 17 stictches in his head the day before,(which you could see)

I was at nass aswell haha. I thought olly todd was a dick, total bellend.

Met alot of pros but the raddest shit being from scotland was when the es team came. Hook up Justin Eldrige, kellen James and Josh matthews with ganja. Shit was tight, got a smoke with them too.
Ipath team were rad too, fred gall drinkin buckfast was rad as fuck.

I saw Berra at the bowls but I was way more into watching Steve Olson (Foundation/Shorty's Olson) ollie these bike racks.?  That was a fun year.

Yeah, I went 3 times and that was probably my favourite, I don't really remember Olson but I remember seeing a lot of sick skating in the car park of wherever the bowls were.

I skated a mini with Rune Glifberg in the mid 90's and watched in awe as he did tailgrab airs to fakie the size of my height.
Skated with the DVS Team (York, Wilson, Sheffey, Brenes, Milton and Castillo) at a demo in 98, hooked up Sheffey with some ganja and learned how to do a soda can pipe from the master!  :D

Other than that I've seen some demos (Girl, Lakai) but didn't really talk to anyone.

I saw what appeared to be Jerry Hsu at a bus stop on Main St. in Van last weekend, but he was with an attractive girl and I'm too old to really fan out anyway. Like, what do I say?
"Hey you're good at skating. Despite my yuppie-ish appearance, I also ride the skateboards."

A while back during go skate day some friends and i were at the DC skate plaza and went to a hooters after. Happened to glance in the corner and se Wenning, Kalis, and Getz at a table. We rounded up a waitress and bought them a round of beer and got a pic with them and some hooters girls, it was pretty dope.

I skated with Jeff Lenoce at the North Holywood plaza.(Yes actually sessioned with him... for like ten minutes) He was a cool dude. I saw Mike Carroll, and Feds with a bunch of girls partying in Hollywood, and saw Guy Mariano in his car.

Late 90's/early 00's I had a skate house with some homies in OKC. Birdhouse came through, consisted of Reynolds, Kirchart, Appleyard, and Lenoce. That one dude that owned Bootleg was the TM. We got a keg of beer and partied at my house. Pretty good times, Heath bet a guy he couldn't eat 13 McD's cheeseburgers, the guy tried and vomited. A lot.

I dunno what year it was but Malcom Watson was living in Spokane Washington and I played him S.K.A.T.E a few times and I won one game and he gave me his Arcade(I think) board. It was the one that looks like the Full Metal Jacket cover and said "Full Malcom Watson" on it. He was one of the nicest guys I've ever met.

Met Leo the other day, I was a little nervous and didn't(couldn't) have much to say to him. I was between all these kids who wanted their stuff signed and he was in the van with the rest of the RVCA team. He signed a board I had of his, got a photo and joked about James Hardy's cover. I actually got a couple of photos cause the first one turned out crappy and I went back up to him and he was like sure. Best dude.

a couple months ago jason dill was trying to defend himself to me about the kalis interview on quartersnacks, he was saying how kalis had ak-47  earrings and used to always say how he thought he should get royalties when he saw someone on TV or movies wearing his DCs.
