This is the big Skatepark Meeting for Memorial Skatepark. We will be notifying all of the neighbors around the site, so it is very important that we have as many skaters there as possible to head off any opposition. Plus you'll get to see the proposed plans and site. We need to get hundreds of skaters from all over San Diego there. Be there!
In other F AM news, Mike Rusczyk has a mini interview coming up in the next Slap, issue # December. Mike Rusczyk is also in line for knee surgery, “he has some torn up shit in there”. Plus, Mike just accepted sponsorship for Speed Metal bearings, look for the 2 page ad in mags now.
The F in Europe article will be in Transwolrd issue # January. Look for the escapades of Daniel Shimizu, Mike Rusczyk and Justin Roy as they unleash their homicidal activities on the streets of Europe. I heard the stories and they sound like fun.
Justin Strubing and Daniel Shimizu are cruising out to Spain for the Barcelona contest. If your on that side of the globe, go check em and let em know you care. After the contest they’ll be on a filming mission for the new and highly anticipated Emerica video.

Subject: YOU GUYS RULE!
I just wanted to write and say that Foundation fucking rocks! You guys have the best team of heshers out there! I am a fan of technical skating, but recently I bought Foundation's new vid "Art Bars - Subtitles and Seagulls," and it fucking rocks! My favorite part was Kris Markovich's part as well as Daniel Shimizu's part. Daniel's style is fucking amazing. It's like his ass touches the ground after a big rail...and then, a smooth rebound back up. It has been my favorite video out of a collection of many. That Jon West film at the end was sweet, too. I just wanted to acknowledge that all Tum Yeto companies rock...If I got a reply from the owner or whatever, or anyone on Foundation, it would make my dull, boring life a lot better. I think I'm gonna stop talking now, because I know you guys are busy skating and stuff. By the way, I can't skate for about 2 more weeks, because of some bogus knee problems...Anyway, keep up the good work. Thanks for your time...If you even read my sappy letter...
Sincerely yours, A skateboarder named Brandon Getty.
