Hi,

Anyone interested in participating if Eddy Matzger brings his 3-day SkateFarm Road Show to Chicago on April 30-May 2, 2010? It costs $260 to participate in the event. If you haven't heard of Eddy Matzger, please use a search engine and youtube.

He needs a minimum of 12 participants (11 more) in order for him to bring the show to Chicago. Most likely the venue will be somewhere along the lake front in Chicago. In the past, they have used Bicentennial Plaza and if it rained, the tunnel near Soldier Field.

Details of the Road Show can be found here

The "Eddy Matzger SkateFarm Road Show" is an intensely participatory, interactive skating experience. Taught by Eddy himself in small groups over the course of a weekend, the workshop is geared for all ages and abilities, and covers inline skating and racing from A to Z. The workshop is a whooping weekend affair, including over 20 hours of Eddy's personal instruction. Whether you're a new skater or a seasoned racer, Eddy spends quality time with each participant every day. The workshop emphasizes having fun while committing the fundamentals of technique to muscular memory. Hipwork, teamwork, and the principle of least work are some core ideas around which the workshop is structured.

"They" is "we". I am a survivor of the first Eddy Matzger Workshops here. It is fantastic. If you want to improve your marathon or ultra-marathon time this is how. Eddy is a world-class skater who has won numerous races including the 87-mile Athens-to-Atlanta Road Skate something like 8 times. If you want to skate like you mean it this is where you start.
