If you haven't taken the time to watch the online trailer for the upcoming Stu Thomsen documentary, "Stompin' Stu," now would be the time to grab your credit card, and click the link below (in that order)....'s ok, we'll wait....
...OK, here is the link: http://www.stompinstu.com
The film is by "Joe Kid On A Stingray" producers John Swarr and Mark Eaton, with Byron Friday getting his move-up points to the "producer's" line this time around (way to go By-rohn!).
Oh...why the credit card? Well, after you watch the trailer, you're GOING to want to place your order (which you can do on the same site), so we figured we'd just be proactive. The pre-orders will be shipping next week, and we want you near the front of the line.
It is also important to note that John and Mark are supporting the VintageBMX.com community by placing a button ad for the film--------->
With lots of driving coming up to year-end State races and Grands of one flavor or the other, this is the perfect "honey, you drive" entertainment.
Plan on hitting the ABA BMX Hall Of Fame Banquet in San Diego on September 17 because, aside from a "cast" of the biggest collection of BMX legends since who-knows-when, there will also be a special screening of the film after the ceremony. The PERFECT opportunity to get your Stompin Stu'
poster autographed by most everyone in the film (including, of course, Stompin' Stu, himself). Some tickets are still available at: http://2009ababmxhof.eventbrite.com/
About a month after ship date, and you've had a chance to watch it a couple dozen times, we'll do a "Watch & Chat" where everyone watches the film while on the VBMX chat. Who know, we may just be able to lure some "surprise guests" in to the room. (Note: we also plan to do Watch & Chat's with "Ground Up" and JKOS--at last, eh S.Towne)
So, enjoy, and a big thanks to John, Mark and Byron for being "friends of Vintage!"
