We at the Beach Bladers have a very unusual concept, we have a few members whom actually share "dual citizenship" They are members of 2 different teams, wear other uniforms for various races. Charlie Howell, Mike Chevddeen (retired to do race photography). Our members think it is OK! to "share citizenship" when done in the spirit of the fun of friendship and racing. More team members are listed below in no particular order, Estaban "Steve" Abenoza, (who is 74 years young!) , Maurizio Tsio, John Gwinner, Team captain, Audrey Winthrop (creator of the brake for 4 or 5 wheel frame, hence the name, racebrake, skate on 4 or 5 wheel frames with safety of a brake when needed), our newest members, Brian Mickelson, Tran Lee (now on 5 wheel frames) and Kevin Rose who's enthusiasm & smile is as sunny at bright day on the beach! Email firstname.lastname@example.org questions or for more information about skate races.
As we change (age etc.), now we have a new catagory skaters who have raced their hearts out and no longer inline skate but are still team members in spirit! Jan Assjer Larsen (and his dog Tyler who is our team mascot with his own special custom skin suit but sadlyTyler crossed over the rainbow bridge and is now herding the teams in the sky), Margie Thompson (who is 70 years young Jan, 2014!) & Alan Johnson whom after the race on the base Feb. 2014 will be retiring at the young age of 69. life changes , just keep marching!
Happy team saturday practice in June gloom at EL Dorado Park, the weather may have been overcast, but we were not!
Where you aware that Bont is our sponsor? :) Seems most of the team are skating in them!
Maurizio Tsio skating Napa, 1 hour 40:49, great job!
Great job by both Maurizio Tsio, and John Gwinner in Napa Marathon June 2009! Maurizio did great and skated well, John did well also considering he clicked skates with someone right at the beginning, fell down hard but got up to finish the race! Congrats to all whom skated the race!!!!!!
