Eight Eight Eight Disco Cart Sk8

Route will include Washington Harbor, Georgetown Waterfront Park, M Street in Georgetown, Dupont Circle, U Street, and 14th Street. Map is posted at http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?...­

It is only 7 miles and there are no steep downhills and only one short steep uphill climbing out of Washington Harbor. Almost all WAR skaters who are used to Friday Skates will have an easy time with this Disco Cart Skate. 

This time we are going to "step on" WAR's weekly Friday Night Monument Skate by beginning our Disco Cart Skate before the other one normally finishes. But skaters can actually do most or all of the earlier skate before catching up to the Disco Cart in Georgetown. Hopefully this interesting plan will attract extra skaters to both events (worth a try anyway). The plan is to meet at 8pm, then cone skate for a while before rolling away PROMPTLY at 8:30. If you are not ready to roll at 8:30, it is your job to track us down in Georgetown so print the map if you are a chronically tardy person. Easy to remember to get out for this skate because it is scheduled at 8pm on 8/8/2014.

    Bring your ID (or your Mom) if you want to join the other skaters for a quick drink at James Hoban's Irish Restaurant & Bar just before we reach DuPont Circle. If you would rather keep skating you can have extra time to explore this fun neighborhood rather than sit down to a drink.

      Should have skipped the bar stop. Two skaters ducked into the Metro Train station at that point. Talked it over a couple miles before we got there but it didn't sink in that we didn't have unanimous approval. Will know better next time. Bar was actually fun but broke up group unity. Got quite a wild dance party going just outside the bar as we were departing. Saving the bar until after the skating is done next time.

      I'm not a fan of Hobans. I prefer someplace more casual with better food. Did you know that Chipotle has $5 margaritas?

    Perfect weather forecast for this event! On the Facebook version of this invitation we have 8 yes and 3 maybe rsvps so far.

    We are planning to meet at 8:00pm for some cone skating near the White House before we start rolling toward Georgetown's Washington Harbor PROMPTLY at 8:30pm. If you are not ready to roll at 8:30pm it is your job to track us down between Washington Harbor, Georgetown Waterfront Park, and M Street.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
