How long have you been playing and what got you hooked?
I started playing in 84..Met a guy from NY and played him all the time at Skate City where I used to race..He was the best player I had ever seen. One night some guys came in and we played them doubles and they killed us. We were like WOW! They took us to the
Lamplighter in Littleton and that was the first Tornado I ever played on.The Lamplighter was the home of 10 or so world champions. A whole new world opened up for me there.
