Gareth Stehr is getting married today in Las Vegas, congratulations! He also just bought his first car, a black 27-foot long 1972 Cadillac Hearse bought on Ebay. So the Crew: Gareth, Ball, Baca, Nuge, & Shad, headed off to Colorado to pick the thing up and drive it back to California. They ran into some pretty shitty weather, snow, sleet, rain; you name it, they went through it. On top of that, Gareth and Shad got stuck in Phoenix due to some coolant & radiator problems, but all is good now and Gareth is licensed, registered and on the road to matrimony.
Patrick Melcher was in practice Friday at Tampa Pro and slipped out of a tail slide. Catching himself on the slam, he put his hand down, popped his elbow out, and then spent the next 6 hours of the day in the hospital...He's good though, and in surprisingly good spirits given the situation. His focus while he recuperates is to finish some editorial projects he's been working on, so see Melch in your favorite skateboard magazines soon.
