This event literally brought in a crowd of all ages. Adults, teens, and even a toddler. It was pretty low key and the guys hung around afterwards killing time until the party at Kickstand(stay tuned for photos) by eating KFC and small talk and stories from the team. Paul told us about how he was driving through LA the other day and he looked over at a bus stop and saw an old man dressed in all black with the top half of a mannequin on his lap dressed in black with a black wig and the two (man and mannequin) were carrying out a conversation.

Plenty of the above boards were sold and if I’m not mistaken there are some to be given away today at Cowtown.
Tedd and Wally organized all of this, so thanks to them for making all of this possible. They’re both good guys and Wally runs a great shop. While waiting for Blueprint to arrive, I saw him help a kid (with no idea what brands he wanted) pick out a complete board from start to finish treating him no different than any other customer. If you live in the area, go support this shop!.
Paul and Danny took a picture of a homemade collage of Blueprint photos this kid brought in. Paul and Danny both had a sense of humor, Paul with his few stories and jokes and Danny, when asked about Reda, only said “There’s no such thing as bad publicity” and “I get messages of Facebook all the time saying “Danny Brady Danny Brady Danny Brady!” and “Danny Brady is a wanker”.
Thank to Blueprint for coming out and doing this and Old Skool for hosting it. Check back for a slideshow with more pictures from the signing and updates from the Cowtown Showdown and the Pre-Party which was last night.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the Veteran’s Memorial this weekend, don’t miss it! Keep checking back for updates throughout the weekend!
