Indiana's 1st Birthday Party!

It's pretty hard to believe but exactly 1 year ago today I made the first post on Indiana Inline. In just 1 year we now have over 70 members on our messageboard and growing scenes in multiple Indiana cities. Everybody take a minute to pat yourselves on the back for sticking with the most unpopular and constantly stereotyped sport of rollerblading. Let's make year #2 love errrbody.

August Indianapolis AIL Contest Cancelled!

Unfortunately there just wasn't enough time to properly plan and promote for this contest so it looks like we'll have to wait until next year to host an AIL comp. The good news is that this will give me more time to help Vince M. promote the Brass Knuckle Beatdown which is coming soon...keep checking back!

Skatepark Roadtrip to Kentucky and Ohio 7/25 or 7/26

Matt Lorch posted this up on the messageboard about an upcoming skatepark roadtrip so hit up the board and get in on this no matter where you're from.

A road trip is being planned to Florence, KY's outdoor concrete park, as well as Delhi Township, OH's outdoor street plaza (western Cincinnati). Florence's skatepark is well-rounded and has a lot of lines. Delhi has some great street obstacles...not to mention an amazing wedge to ledge obstacle. If you are interested in going, would you prefer either Saturday, July 25th or Sunday, July 26th? Time of departure would be approximately 9:00 AM. I vote for Saturday, however this depends on the weather forecast. Check back later in the week for confirmations of the date and the departure time.

Alex Braunagel 2008 Online Profile by Josh Mayo

This was the second section on the Indiana Inline Year In Review: Vol. I DVD and the third section to be uploaded since the release. Sorry for anybody who got dvd copies at the contest...I had to throw the dvd menu together pretty quickly and it won't let you play all unless you are playing it on a computer. Just remember that Owen Nevins is the first play on the disc and that will take you through all of the sections. Enjoy.

The 2009 Major Taylor's Blade Jam

All photos by Chris Lenfert

The Major Taylor’s Inline Contest has always been a great facilitator for connecting skaters from different parts of Indiana and the Midwest. For almost a decade this gathering has been happening annually without a hiccup until a few years ago when people either grew up or moved away from home. The success of the Major Taylor’s Blade Jam is exactly what Indiana needed as a catalyst for growth. What we do with that growth will consequently affect the livelihood of our lifestyle for when we’re too old and battered to be on the front lines. Although we’ve definitely had way more bladers show up at Major Taylor’s comps in the past, this one was most definitely my favorite and I can’t wait to see what this summer has in store for Indiana Inline.

McVan's Video Games Best Trick Winner

Jeremy Adamowicz

I would like to give a HUGE thanks to all the sponsors, everyone who helped with the event, and everyone who simply made it out to the comp. All proceeds from this contest went directly to the skate park which is in a huge budget crunch so every little bit helped immensely. Following up the Blade Jam an Indianapolis AIL competition is in the works and scheduled for August 16th, The 2009 Brass Knuckle Beatdown will be happening soon after, and Tiny Beautiful Things will be released this Christmas so keep checking to stay up on the latest news. Make sure to support the following companies since they support us: Razors, One, McVan’s Video Games, Roll Blue, E-Rolling, Rollerblade, and Aggressivemall. The edit should be up any day this week...Brandi donated some footage for the edit but I don't have a mini-dv camera anymore so there's been a slight delay on getting the edit done. Check back soon!

This weeks Indianapolis Monday Night Skate at the Carmel Monon Center Skatepark 6PM (7/6)

It's been quite a while since we've done a Monday Night Skate anywhere other than Major Taylor's and most definately a while since the Carmel kids were overwhelmed with rollerbladers. 6PM and then of course there will be a northside street filming session after a while so make sure to come out. See you there.
