I set the 7th of May as a date and chose my new home park in Ravensburg, Germany as a location. After a few e-mails the most important sponsors decided to support the event.

We put a few steaks and sausages on the barbecue and the session began. The skating level increased a lot without any force within short time. Beat Schillmeier, Lucas Landthaler, Manuel Weber, Franz Josef, Claudio Bohli, Sebastian Dreysse, Jan Nachbur and Felix Brockmann were some of the names of the participants.

Especially remarkable was the new blood from Germany and Austria. The old masters and not yet well known skaters in the age from 10 years skated great that day. As far as I observed, everybody was enjoying and smiling whereas leaving the park. Shirts, frames and wheels were the reward in the bowl session. The longest grind and the highest air were perfect. Three free subscriptions of Be-Mag were given to one youngest and two elder riders. Enjoy it!

I liked the sessin a lot! The appreciation from the people after every event is the best feedback for me. I am always glad to see experienced guys skating together with the new generation.

Harald Bultok took care of the music. Humbug organized electricity. Because of Immanuel Rapp, Wladislaw Sokolowskij, Richie Saile and Wolfgang Appelt we can enjoy a lot of pictures. Thanks go out to Grindhouse, Powerslide, Be-Mag, Tizian Bögl, Harrald Bultoc, Robin Krumholz and every skater in attendance that day!
