Wheelbite has setup a fund to finish the ramp that Chris Thatcher was building (Facebook link). They're trying to raise $600.00, cruise on over and have a look.
Here's your non-skate video of the week. Watch your back.
Kudos to the skaters of Bemidji and St. Cloud; SC is breaking ground on a skate plaze today, almost while I type this. Bemidji broke ground on Monday. St. Cloud is just a half an hour further away from Minneapolis than Oakdale, this could be cool.
Not sure if cha'll have been keeping up with ESPN's Real Street deal for the X-Games. Its been cool but not worth linking to until now; Zered really should win as far as I can tell, and the switch heel manual at
Law and Order the Courthouse is killer.
Oh yeah, git buck!

Thrasher has been showing some love for Minne this week; first linking up to the Winter section of Feelin' Minnesota and now today, giving Meyer's Ghost Ride vid some shine. Assist on the second link from Jaimes, tweeting from the Northwestern Precinct, St Paul.
Sneaker heads be aware, Bratrud is raffling off some of his kicks to support something very near and dear to him, boobs.
A-List! Did I already post that?
That's probably it for the week. Happy Weekend.

It was a heavy weekend; review the post below. There's more Thatcher related info here at my TSM post. From what I can figure out there may be a MN funeral. I'll do my best to figure things out as information emerges and keep all posted.
In other news, the Ghost Ride Da Whip contest was pretty much awesome. Gregg Clover proved to be the MVP of the day, racking up some bizzaro first try tricks, among which I'm pretty sure was a frontside 180 fakie five-0 on the hood of the car. That one was worth way more than the $5 he got, but he made up for that low-ball sale with plenty of other tricks. As it should always be expected, Edward Kochendorfer came through with the kickflip crooks, though he made, again, very little money for his "efforts." The quotes only denote that he has that trick on lock. Tabari, per usual, got buck and made his fair share of the change, but, in the end, the day was stolen by a pair of little Lair dudes.
Jonathan Reese showed up late and pulled the much anticipated backtail on the car and made a warranted $20. Once the car was reset for launch mode, he rode across the top of the whip and got a kickflip off, earning another $20. The heelflip onto the Lincoln got him similar accolades. The other little man to come up was Lucas Filhouer (sic?). Another latecomer, Lucas made few waves until the car was turned, when he promptly made the first trick on the new setup, a kickflip on to ride off.
Lucas had made other tricks throughout, and his stash of $5 bills was nothing less than impressive, but for what its worth, and sadly, his biggest splash came at the end of the contest, while any new-tricks-to-be-done had dried up. Just as everyone that was throwing the contest was over it, and looking to end the whole Ghost Riding craze, Lucas managed to hang up on the driver's side window, and throw himself to the ground, mostly head first.
As it was more and more apparent that little dude was not getting up, and after it was announced that Lucas had won $45 for his valiant dive, the crowd crowded the course to see if he was OK. Minutes later, the little man got up, and less than 24 hours later he was in Familia buying a new pair of shoes with all that hard-earned cash.

Edit: Cavs owner, Dan Gilbert's letter looks like a 3rd Lair flyer circa the recent past (that is the worst font!) and suddenly the people in charge of "The Decision" are saying Lebron is not the villan. Blowing it!
Otherwise, there's nothing else today but this semi-pointless-yet-cool video of Julien and MC pushing down the street via Thrasher.

And then there's this:
"He has aspirations of one day opening a nightclub, and currently owns and operates Familia Skateshop. He is an avid traveler,and has traveled several times to Lebanon, where he has ancestral ties. He is bilingual, and can speak Spanish."-Nesser's Wikipedia Page
How'd they find out plans for the 80's nightclub? Meyer?

Edit: Also a large and late and almost missed Happy Birthday to the Jackal. How did "Bloody 4th" go?
