It was pretty rough today. This is OSO isn't it? I can't make it out tomorrow. What's this about cats? 7 V's showed up and only 2 Cats!

I beg to differ about the Vs and the cats, maybe you did not get close enough to see but there was a skater from long island NY, and a skater from Georgia, and an eliminator waiting on trailers for the decision to run. Perhaps the Vs were all bobbing around like corks and could not focus on tims parking lot HAR HAR. Just to be fair, 2 checkmates and a velovity were also sitting on trailers.

28 Skater speeds
Charlie w/2.5's - 120.8
Jim w/300x's - 117.9 (I believe he ran faster on the other side of the gun)

Martin 31 Awesome Cat - He was top dog again
132.5 -

Also extremely impressive was the 26 Velocity
110.8
