How About A REAL Masters’ Championship?

Here’s a great thread that I’m sure a lot of you will enjoy- How about a REAL masters’ championship?

Greetings, my fellow aging skaters! Here I go again… How about having a REAL World champs for us old timers? I mean, not just a lone boring marathon, designed and organized specifically to make some italian fanatics win at all costs… No, what I propose (once again) is to have the full monty, a collection of several distance/type races, from time trials to the bloody marathon (if you insist on having that), including relays….

Marcello got virtually thrown out of a meetting for trying to support Nigeria, as no one else in Authority was, But it was over a politically appointed official over the last 10 years, Also on the gravy train for the World games, get real & get Fisher in there, not pretenders, who keep there breath sweet with chewing Gum in case the masters come by with the usual wink & a Nod.

Look at our track record & check the files, not the skating ones, of Sabatino Aracu, The Late Molina from Argentina, Ferreria from Colombia, its quite obvious why we go backwards instead of forwards. THese are, or were the big power brokers of our wonderfull sport, you do not have to be mandrake the magican to work out the common denominater & where to check their files.

Whoa, there, mate! Now THAT’S what I call support! I even wet myself. As for CIC & Co, as you well know, things are better served if you do ’em yourself… and I know I can organize a better event than any of those italian donkeys. At least, chicks & lager are 100% guaranteed! And viagra will be NOT considered doping here

If I’m flying 1/2 way round the world then Hell Yes I’d like 1 week of racing…otherwise it will be 2 days of racing and 5 days of Yahooing.
