Hey all... I'm from SE Michigan (downriver) about 30 minutes south of Detroit.
Just thought I'd drop a line in this thread... I usually ride at Mt. Holly as it is better than Brighton in my opinion, and its easier to get to than Alpine Valley.

Anyway... I just bought a new board, last year's Lib Tech Banana Magic. Just got it delivered yesterday and I'm pretty stoked. Here are a few pics:
