Before I go back into lurker mode, you're all very welcome for the reports. I'm just glad that I was in the right place at the right time. And it helps me to not feel so bad for having planned my vacation during Skate San Francisco two weeks ago and missing seeing Mr. Nicks there, because I got to see him in Oakland this weekend.
I do the best I can to watch as much as I can of Skate St. Moritz every year (when I'm not in class or volunteering) and some of the other competitions in the Bay Area as well, so if there are any other skaters coming to compete that you'd like reports on, drop me a pm just in case I didn't catch the post asking for reports and I'll see if I can make it.
Time to re-enter lurker mode...
