    It ain't a party unless the cops show up

    Next year let's see if we can get the SWAT team out

      X2 Please tell me someone got a clear shot of that.

      The tripod cam footage of that particular moment didn't turn out good (I've heard, not seen it myself yet)

          plaque presentation

          I still can't find the right words to describe this past weekend and if I was to start I might not stop. What everyone says is the truth. This became one of the best experiences of my life. It was truly a pleasure to have had the opportunity to meet so many great people. I don't think any electric devices were working properly, there was way to much energy in the air, but this is what my sweety, Becky was able to get. LONG LIVE THE KING!!!!!

            Tommy you are a stand up guy and I thank you for your help with the event. I am really excited about your swivel design, I can say I've not seen anything like it, and if it plays out, it should be the way of the future for ball hook swivels.

            I don't think any electric devices were working properly, there was way to much energy in the air, but this is what my sweety, Becky was able to get. LONG LIVE THE KING!!!!! ]
            Great job Becky !!! And Tommy

            I'm glad you got that on video!

              I'm (we're) all ears, TommyT!

              I don't think any of us on the forum – attendees, as well as those who must settle for living it vicariously through our words and digital images– will mind reading about your take on the event.

              BTW...loved meeting the mighty "speedyTommyT" and Becky! You – as well as ALL of the guys involved in this forum and event – are truly genuine, sincere people. (I know, I know, enough gushing, MsD...)

                        back down under

                        Arrived home Saturday, what a trip, great experience and to think that punching a speed ball all these years in the shed and thinking nothing of it would end up getting me to America. Seen some fantastic places Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls and some big cities and was lucky enough to catch up with my daughter Kate in San Fransisco for a couple of days which was an added bonus. However the sight seeing side of things fades to insignifigance when compared to the SB2010 event. It was truly a unique experience and the welcoming dad and i received was unbelievable. We met some really great people and the friendships formed i know will stand the test of time. There was many highlights and some ground breaking stuff. Spin on drums and bag, AK punch drumming, Skunk at full throttle punching every combo, but to me it was the people and the personalities that made it. There was as much laughing as there was punching. Dee, Tommy and Bec, Greg, Jack, Donnie and family, Louie and Brandon, Tim and Carole, TJ, Scissor, JD, Ken and Mike. What a great bunch. Not to forget the the big brother Biff who took us under his wing. what a guy, he has the personality which enables him to mix easily with people, he is a quiet achiever, he doesn't waste his words but you hang off everything he says. He picked us up from the airport and treated us like his family from then on, it was like we had known him for years. and one day i'm sure i will be able to do the same. Also a big thanks to Tim, Donnie and their families for putting on such a great event. It was really something special and at my first chance will post some videos and photos.
                        Thanks everyone deano

                          Glad to hear you had a safe fly about, Mate. Deano it was a pleasure to meet you and your father also. I've watched my video of Kid about ten times, 77 years and still able to get those elbows up is just amazing to me. And thanks for bringing the equipment and showing off the skills. Keep Bangin!

                            Glad to hear you enjoyed your trip and SB 2010. I would also like to thank you for bringing the Jim Bradley equipment it certainly was a treat to be able to try that stuff out. Great stuff!

                            It definitely was the experience of a lifetime being under the board with so many great people.

                              Hey Deano, Meeting you and your dad was one the THE highlights of this event. At least for me. Your awesome Aussie personality, a smile and wink for everyone, was a joy to meet and hang out with. Your incredibly unique baggin style was a first for me to witness personally. Video does not do justice to what you do. I'm rarely stump and dumbfounded on the speed bag, and I can normally figure what what someone is doing and how they do it, but YOU and your method is an original, at least for all the speed baggers I have ever seen,
                              (which I admit has been quite a few over the years...). I loved watching you and skunk get together and show each other your own "tricks", kinda like the next generation joining forces. Seeing you with the some of the other great bag talents makes me believe some of the greatest baggin' has yet to be seen, and the future looks bright for speed baggers. And I need to get to Australia for some lessons because apparently theirs some secrets you guys know that your not sharing....

                              Aside from baggin' it was really great meeting you and DAD and sharing stories of our lives. You're Both great people - and a tribute to the human race in general as well as the baggin' community in particular.
