I'll be staying at the Quality Inn near the main airport, near the car rentals. I need a co-pilot/navigator since I'm a Lo-Tech, so if you need rides, get a hold of me. Thanks -PTH

Salem Oregon Brad Kasha Memorial BBQ Slalom
On 4/25/2019 Paul Howard wrote in from (50.206.nnn.nnn)

"GO" is the answer.

The weather forecast looks great, Salem Parks-n-Rec says there's no conflict on their schedule so as of today, it's a "GO".

If something happens to put the ka-bosh on it, I'll post here and on the 'ol Facebook (for those who are NCDSA-impaired).

I've got a broken rib so I'll be moving a bit slow, but Vic will pick up the slack, hopefully.

See you there!

23 years and counting..
On 4/3/2019 Adam wrote in from United States  (73.70.nnn.nnn)

Upon updating our little birthday girl on the home page this year, it occurred to me that, perhaps, Ncdsa's longevity was extraordinary.

Turns out I was right! With our origin dating back to 1996 and operating *continuously* since then, we rank right up there with the web's true dinosaurs..

Thanksgiving
On 11/22/2018 loneskater wrote in from (174.238.nnn.nnn)

Happy Thanksgiving all. And to think in 2001 some of us were on a hill in LaCosta. It truly was a great time. So where ever you are to all those into slalom before and since, have a great day.

Thank you to Adam for keeping this place open. I wish I would see more of te old heads here, but I guess we are all getting older. I do most of my riding in bowls and parks nowadays, but I still have a Comet Cross and and Ick Stick at the ready.

Subs for lunch, don't bring meat since there won't be a BBQ to cook them on.

Salem Slalom BBQ or Subs is a GO!
On 6/15/2018 Vic Smead's little helper wrote in from (50.206.nnn.nnn)

Per phone call today the hill is available so, barring mechanical vehicle problems, the Slalom-food-n-blab-fest appears to be a GO!

Remember: HELMETS, WATER, BROOMS, CONES

Thanks - The Management.

Salem Oregon Slalom Update....
On 6/13/2018 Vic Smead's little helper wrote in from (50.206.nnn.nnn)

As per phone call today 6-13-2018, the Bush Park SBD hill is still open for our non-scheduled drop-in use of that specific municipal recreation facility. Stay tuned, one more call planned for 6-15-2018.

Depending on ambient temperature and available pre-event preparation time, the food may be BBQ or Subway subs. Stay tuned.

Thanks - The Management.

Salem Slalom BBQ Water Blue-Green Algae Alert!
On 6/9/2018 Vic Smead wrote in from (50.206.nnn.nnn)

Hey folks, Salem has been having a bit of a blue-green algae (and it's toxins) problem lately, nothing serious unless you're young, old and or already sick with something. That said, I'll have my usual extra water but you might want to bring plenty of your own water also so you don't have to rely on the drinking fountain at the top of the hill. Don't be scared - be prepared!
Thanks - The Management.

Downhillbillies
On 5/12/2018 A Good Reliable Source of Info wrote in from (50.206.nnn.nnn)

I think those guys all ate each other. Not like zombies per se, but like regular run-of-the-mill cannibals. More or less. Something like that happened anyway, as I recall. As the years have gone by, it's gotten sorta fuzzy.

Hope that helps.

Salem Slalom BBQ
On 4/14/2018 Vic Smead's little helper wrote in from (50.206.nnn.nnn)

As of a phone call 4-14-2018, the SBD hill is still unreserved and open for us to BBQ on, and skate if anyone stops blabbing and eating long enough to get on their boards and ride down the hill.
Thanks - Assistant to the management.

Thanksgiving
On 11/23/2017 loneskater wrote in from (174.238.nnn.nnn)

Hard to believe in 2001 La Costa was taking place, thanks to Mr. Hester and the numerous helpers and volunteers. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I am thankful to be able to skate and know there are still many of the first and second generation of skaters from clay wheels still skating today and passing it on. It is my tradition to try and get on here every Thanksgiving and say hay to all of you thanks for the races. Miko, Gorman, Cliff, Noah, Byrd, Dave, Ick Sticks, Arab, Mr. Turner (RIP), Howard Gordon (RIP), BLR, FCR, O Shei's, and many others, I know many of you are still on the four wheel thing that brings a smile to us.

Put down some cones, turn!

Slippy Slalom
On 10/24/2017 PSR wrote in from United States  (65.96.nnn.nnn)

I was 'snowboard Race training' at this one N. Mass location (nice, new tar, only ghosts, and acorns in the way) with a pair of Carver Students this Sunday. AWEsome Weather, stuff we would never see 'in the day' this time of year (sweat dripping off my brow, yeah, NOT late Autumn-like for these parts of the woods!). Well, I have at this spot, several grades to pick from, 6.5% down to 2%. We set-up on the 6% side first, which was to much, with pine needles/acorns reducing grip. But, my old Bozi G.S.was still finding grip, somehow (and in it's swb/4 wheel set-up), but couldn't get the 'chicane' 6'-spaced set at the bottom. But, using a Hybrid Turner, I could make the course and be comfy at the end. Funny how a few (actually, 2.125") inches of wheelbase will change your agility, foot position, and top-end speed! All variables, built on variables, made from how well YOU move. It isn't a science, as in,'I have The Formula', but there are parameters one has to, um, 'calculate' , upon best guesses, to find the limits and 'best fit'.
