On October 6, 2012 Art Thomason had a backyard barbecue jam to introduce everyone to his new riding spot. It was dubbed The Landing Pad by Marty since Art works for NASA. It was a great time and made me think if Art's Landing Pad would become as epic as "The Enchanted Ramp". There was plenty of room for everyone to throw down links. It was almost like a pre-toast jam since most everyone that attended will be going to Texas Toast/Roundup.
Traveling the greatest distance to attend this party was Alex Jumelin. It was great to be able to hang out with Alex in such a relaxed environment. He was riding his new bike that appeared on the Saint Martin Site for a bike check.
Jesse Edwards was filming this event. He captured many great moments. I am not sure but I am thinking Cesar Calderon has the most completed links on film. He was landing tricks left and right. Death trucks to Stick, Backpackers and even a new maneuver that he may show at Toast/Roundup. I will post the video that Jesse puts together after he gets it posted.
Missing from the group shot is Andrew. He had to leave early to go to work. He threw down a few tricks before leaving. He was helping Art with lights for the Landing Pad so the session can go on even when it gets dark.
Art and Carrie were very gracious host. They cooked some great food for everyone on the grill. Marty brought some great Jalapeno wraps for everyone to enjoy as well. It was a blast being apart of such a very cool laid back party.
Thank you Art for having everyone over to your Landing Pad. It was well worth the drive to wittiness the days events for myself. With a combination of the 3 F's flatland, friends and food it doesn't get much better than this.
