Exclamation Dick O'Dea To Attend SKATERFEST III

Yes I DID IT!!! The one and ONLY, DICK O'DEA will be in attendance at Skaterfest III!!!! For those of you who do not know, let's just say...when it came to outboards Dick was DA MAN! I grew up with and am still close to his daughter Jennifer. He is as humble an individual as you would ever meet, but he is a WEALTH of knowledge and information beyond your wildest dreams. If you like outboards, or even repsect the power to weight ratio and dynamics they bring to the table thi is the man to meet! I am sure that T2x will be psyched to see his old buddy once more!

Shane....

Now YOU DA MAN!!!!!! Dick is a gentleman, a demon racer in his day, and a fantastic treasure of history. He had a shop in Paterson NJ on famous "gasoline alley", that was a mecca for the most advanced two stroke marine products ever conceived. Today he is an expert on Model Trains as well.

Did I mention his family owned a newspaper and a radio station?

For once....I'm psyched!!!!!

T2x,

When I was a kid my father used to takwe me to "The Alley". Up until a few years ago Dick still maintained a little work shop there. I believe "The Alley" is no more. I am really looking forward to Skaterfest III. Rich, would mind giving Dick a call? I think it would really excite him. Let me know and I will PM his number to you. The family radio station was WODA correct?
