So primarily my blog consist's of stories about the boys. More specifically stories about the boys skateboarding. This time is no different.
So here I go. Again.
My little Morgan aka Mo, Mo-man, Mo-Mo, Mo-betta or whatever we feel like calling him on any given day.
He has done really well in many skate contests here locally in our area. He loves this sport like nothing else I have ever witnessed him to enjoy and he truly wants to get better at it.
He challenges himself daily and was just recently sponsored by our local skate shop. So his mother that of course would be me decided to start looking for more contest-like skate activites beyond our little neck of the woods for him to get involved in.
I feel these type of experiences, the contest's that is, challenge him and help him to meet many a friend who share his same strong desire to skate and improve.
So when I happened upon this info here I was beyond excited.
We quickly started to plan our trip to Atlanta to participate in the whole she-bang.
Fast forward several months and we found ourselves here this past weekend.
The King of the Groms Contest.
We went with several others local buddies.
But we soon met up with many other fellow Groms we had never had the priveledge of meeting before.
Lots of them. Awesome!
But... there was indeed a contest to participate in so we got right on that with the qualifier to get to the finals.
Mo rode well and qualified in a good spot for mini and bowl contests. He also placed well enough in the street division to get invivted to compete in the championship at a later date. More on that in a minute.
He then worked hard and skated his little heart out as I like to say.
Aunt Jenni was there to cheer him on big time. The Worlds Best Aunt. Hands down! They broke the mold on her. She sat for endless hours cheering and encouraging. You are the best! You know that right?! Yep she know that.
Also a few good friends stopped by to watch. You don't get friend's any better than that either. No way. No how. Thanks guys!
Then he skated well and when it was all said and done...
He placed second in the mini ramp.
Third in the bowl.
And this run here was enough to land him a golden ticket.
Golden ticket again meaning he did not final in street in Atlanta but that he can compete in the championship next month for the street.
But above all this is what was so much fun. The new found buddies.
Oh and the skating of course.
Also these guys. The 3rd Lair guys. The are the ones who put it on and make it so great for the kids. Thanks guys!
Of course the goodies and prizes are not bad either. In fact they are awesome.
But all in all this boy likes to skate. And skate he must. So The King of the Groms Contest is one place we will be doing it.
We are grateful for that.
Grateful for this sport.
Just plain grateful really.
More stores to come.
I know your excited. I know I am.
Over and out.
The very grateful SLM.
Skate on peeps!
