The odd number of pairs partners will really make it difficult!

Pair each divot maker with a freestyler, pairs partner or drskater, and have them all play hockey  ;)

If anyone has suggestions for new phrases, shout them out in this topic. 

At this rate, we might run out of post ranks!

I like that - I could even use famous skater's moves, like "Doin' Biellmanns with Denise."

They came preset, so I kept up their sequences.  They're tied to the post count/rank title, sort of creating tiers.

Sour Cow Herd must be a new one!  I think it is fun to look at my "title" every so often and find out what the next level is.  Much more exciting than "Jr Member" or "Sr Member."

Yes, I snatched that term from your post about the student who tried to do a "sour cow."

We need more fun things like that!  It makes the members' list entertaining:

Just added "Ice Warrior" in honor of Chowskates' board record - five USFSA tests in one day!  Wow!

You're welcome - "Wearing Evelyn Kramer's Coat" has been on the registry since startup because I loved that story from the old board.  In fact, I went to the Lake Placid shop looking for something interesting like that to buy, but settled for second-hand crash pads with no name and a Figure Eights DVD, lol.

Did you ever find out if Evelyn Kramer wanted her PSA coat back?

... I guess all the time on the amusement park tea cups and tire swings as a kid is paying off (on spinning) ...

Love it!  I have to find some way to turn this into a Post Count Title.
