Brawlin' at the Belmar III

When I was in school I was that kid that would always turn his homework in late but  would get away with it cuz all my teachers liked me. I'm hoping that still applies now. So here's the FBM Brawlin at the Belmar III story...First off Binghamton NY is severely fucked, like really really fucked, one example is of the woman who crawled out of the bushes and said I need to help her by exchanging her Turkish $20 bill for a US $20. Or the fucked up candid photos at the local Burger King of their employees behind the counter goofing around. Aussie Tim told me that he heard there was a big state mental hospital there that lost funding and had to let out all the patients that weren't threats to the public loose on the streets. I don't know if thats true or not but I think its a very likely story. I rolled into town just in time to enjoy a few cold ones with some old friends and coming from the LI-NYC area its always awesome going up to Binghamton and paying $2 for beers as opposed to $7. A couple dozen of cheap drinks later and it was time to find a place to crash. My buddy X came through and hooked up myself, Lil' Paulie, his Aussie buddie Jarrod and 3 other dudes with some floor space. The next morning we rolled up to the Belmar and saw the monstrosity of a jump that Dave King built, Who by the way, still aint shit, we were totally expecting to see the amateurs gettin' broke off and they didn't disappoint. When it came to the Pros they all killed it but BF and Doyle battled it for the top 2 spots with Doyle edging out BF. Other highlights of the weekend included The first Bmx movie since Rad called Accelerate being filmed at the event, SuperBmx was in the house, we just printed up some limited edition shirts custom shirts, all different, a post and a pay pal link will be up soon, we were on the scene sharing a merch table with Shitluck, The Last People, The Heathens, and Super Bad Brad. That was good times, all DIY people being a family and helping each other out. A wild late night adventure with JPR, who by the way I had a picture of out of a BmxPlus magazine on my bedroom wall when I was 13. And last but not least a session at John Lee and Hancock's Endwell trails. This was supposedly the 3rd and final round at the Belmar, but the owner Ed hinted that there wil be some other event there next year even if its not a dirt comp.
