RollerCon 2009 day 2


Thumbs up on the cream tower!

Today was swamped with various challenge bouts at both the sports center and Fremont street. 11 in total. I managed to shoot 10, missing the SoCal VS NorCal bout due to be stuck in a line up for food for 20 minutes at the sports center.

Waiting in the food line at the Sports Centre

Yeah, sorry no photos of the SoCal VS NorCal bout. My schedule had the bouts starting at 9pm. I arrived early or so I thought. Then I found that other schedules read 8pm. Turns out the 8pm schedule was the correct one. By the time I figured it out I was waiting in line for some fries with gravy, two cheese burgers and a large lemonade. I could see skating happening. The food line took about 20 minutes to half an hour. There were instances where I thought I'd leave the food to get the shots but in the end my grumbling stomach won out. Food before photos. It's times like this where I wish I had an assistant.
