Mason's First skate Contest!

Yesterday, Mason competed in his first skate contest, held at Lake Cunningham Regional Skate Park. The contest was initially a "Skate Patrick's Day Contest" but due to weather, had to be rescheduled to May. 


At 11, Mason was skating in the 12 and under group. There were 5 or 6 kids in his age group, total. When it was his turn, his first run was flawless. Here are some photos my friend Scott Foss snapped.



 Here is a photo of Frank, Mason and I just before Mason started his second run


When they announced the winners, I kept hearing the other kid's names called, and then there it was. "In first place, Mason Smallwood!" Mason's buddies all were screaming for him, and Brody picked him up and carried him to where they were handing out the prizes. Mason won a deck and a bag of "swag." 





I am thinking of starting a blog dedicated to Mason's skating, if I can find the time.
