Hey, I'm here, but I can't skate on Sundays that early. I would hit Tysons @ noon or P&R @ 12:30, though, if youz all want to skate then. If not, then maybe some Saturday (not next weekend, though).

Actually, I think I would rather ride P&R until I get a board better suited.

Call me cell on Sunday if you want to slalom, as I'll be away from internet access. Leave a message if I don't answer. I'll call you back after 11am.

I’d think Palm would be accurate enough for single-lane training/practice, because a latency problem in the timer would still be consistant during all timed runs.

Yo, Brian, I think it has some potential. Get some appropriate trucks and wheels, set the rear truck back some (maybe under the kicktail, like the way it's on a Sk8kings AXE), and you'll have yourself a slalom board.

Use Tracker RT-X baseplates. Tracker sells them individually, you just have to contact them about ordering some. Or maybe there's still some page on their website that offers all the parts/accessories. You'll have to check it yourself.

If the purpose of the proposed race format is to make races easier on the organizers, how about this instead: Allow people to practice the course without any cones set on it.
