As usual, this year’s Halloween session was an amazing success. I counted over 50 people at the first spot, and we had not only beautiful weather, but a bust free day. Every year, I find myself saying “this was the best Halloween session so far,” and I think that is what makes this event so special. It truly does get better every year. This year was special because we have four different photographers presenting this recap to you. Justin Eischeid, Josh Goodell, Tiffany Wells and I all give your our own perspectives on the session which took place on October 29th, 2011.
“The annual Halloween session is generally the last all-Iowa skate session before winter. It has become a tradition, and was started at least seven years ago by veteran Des Moines bladers including Ryan Clark and Jon Bramhall. Previous locations for the session include Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo/Cedar Falls and the Quad Cities.”
