Over 240 skaters descended on what is arguably the most important amateur skate contest of the year this weekend. RPRT skaters Louie Lopez and Curren Caples were both there to represent. Louie came out with a 4th place finish overall and skated consistently as hell. Curren came out with a solid couple runs in the qualifiers but just missed the mark getting to the semi’s. Good one boys!
