+save the turf+

i never got to skate The Turf in it's heyday. back then i was too young to drive and getting a ride 6 hours to skateboard was out of the question. i remember our friend ross was lucky enough to go there. we heard his stories for days. silky smooth concrete and pool coping all sheltered from the weather. it sounded like a dream and i'm sure it was. keep in mind there were NO cement parks around back then. no major taylor, no louisville, no arizona parks, no grindline, nothing. i think this is an amazing story on so many levels. i hope they can pull it together and resurrect the turf. if nothing else it illustrates good we have it now.
