Bernie wins the Prize!! It is Doug Mayer from PA…and we spy your yellow helmet…Rodney (Smith)!

Here is a tip of the hat to another “Unknown Skater” Invert on the extension…no easy feet considering Tom’s ramp was layered in ice. Anyone know who he or anyone on deck is? We see you Murph(Jim) with your pink zorlac board! What do you think the high bid on ebay would be for that Silver “Hawk” the lad in the red helmet is sporting? Lad? He is probably 40+ now…

Jason Oliva The House of Steam

I received this cool pick of OC Marylands Blue Steel ramp. It was taken in June or July of 1987. I get quite a few of these great shots(looking at you Dennis) of Unknown Skaters so I thought I would add a category (Unknown Skaters) and we can immortalize or identify these unsung heros who never buddied up to their photographer.

So any clues, Sherlock?


PS The House of Steam will be 2 years old on July 20th. If you have anything nice to say now is the time to email some comments!!
