Don't be confused.  This is a new article on an event I was at 23 years ago. It was the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 BIG Score Competition.  The grand prize was $10,000.00. I added the .00 to make it look bigger.  ;D

I can answer more questions about the event if anyone has any. It's one of my favorite events I was in and I love talking and reminiscing about it.

Some updates on what this T&F guy has been up to.

I got sucked back into NES Excitebike. I was doing full runs and Track 4 and 5 kept killing my runs.  I got tired of getting my ass kicked by them so I started practicing on them specifically to be more consistent on my full runs. That soon turned into a PB(WR improvement) on 4 and then a bigger PB(4th WR improvement). 47.26! 3.54 Seconds faster than #2.

Most of my grind was on Track 5. My PB was around 49 and usually got 55-60. I was a novice here.  I was aiming for consistent sub 50 for full runs. I got down to fairly easy 45s. That was about 2 seconds off the top spot, so I started to work on that. The cut from 44 down to 42 or even 43 was much more significant that I thought. I grinded for 1 month and finally got a mid 42. Just a tic away from #1. So, the grind continued, but the goal wasn't #1. It was now SUB 40. There is an unsubmitted run on another players YT. He got 39.95, but for whatever reason, he never submitted it. I think he only does full runs but knew this was significant and saved the clip.  After another month of 2-3 hours a day, I finally get sub 40! 39.45! Here's the thing....I hit mud just before the finish and ruined a shot at sub 39.  FailFish  NotLikeThis I couldn't stand the thought of someone copying my run MINUS the mud and beating me. Another month on Track 5 and I finally get a clean run. 38.86 is where the record stands. I'm done with this track. Your turn!  <thefinger>

I took my newly found knowledge and skills to track 2C Selection A and Selection B and lowered those a few times. I actually have a faster time than anybody else on Selection B (opponents on the track) than they have on Selection A (No opponents).

I've rambled long enough. Short compared to my grind. LOL!

I've been playing a bit of T&F and Hyper Sports. I got some recent competitors on the online leaderboards with the Rearranged kit. They chimed in on some of my YT vids. One of the guys said Sal is very competitive. Boy, THAT was and understatement. Sal is a machine! He's a beast! He's like the Michael Myers of games. He just won't stop. I play about a game or 2 a day just to hope for a good score and he plays 20+!! He sees my PB for one loop of Rearranged and he beats it right away. He then ups it soon after. I'm not much for the 1 loop thing. I like multiple loops.  So I already had the top spot for multi loop and upped it. I thought it was safe. He beats it. So I'm busy trying to take it back and he puts up 483k on Hyper Sports! That's big! It took me a few tries, but I got 489k.

He also found my 1 loop HS WR at CAGDC. 157k. He gets 173k. Different settings, but settings don't change much. You can do simple math to determine what the score woulda/coulda been on the other settings. His score is better.

I now got 185k. Let's see how long this lasts. Same with my 489k.

There's more good stuff. I got new Weightlifting PBs and Swimming PBs. I'll post those later.

For now I need to focus on taking back the Rearranged top score.

Top spot was 1.081m. Took a handful of 1.5 hours games and I finally got 1.087m.

Then I got this. 1.143.  :)

If I can pass that darn 9.60 Long Horse I might grab another 200k.

Glad to see you finally get some challengers. I'm positive they probably know how to Flyhec  8)

Speed training update:  I'm still putting in at least 15 minutes a day on Track and Field and/or Hyper Sports.  I'm still getting faster. I'll keep going till I hit a plateau. BTW, my wobble amd 2 finger tap techniques are now faster than when I got my WRs on both Hyper Sports and Track & Field. 

I also met Cheez, the guy that put rolling into Tetris and took it to new levels.

Which live stream was that on? I know of at least 3 live streams just for the Tetris portion of the event.

Alos, I forgot to mention that I acquired another Track & Field PCB that is different from the other 9 I have. I finally got one that can throw the Hammer along the upper foul line. My other pcbs have 3 spots to throw. Bottom line, just above bottom line and just below bottom line. This PCB has those 23 spots as well as upper line.

That's what makes 99.99 and even roll overs beyond 100m. 99.49 is all my others could do, as far as I know.

How recognized were you at the convention? I imagine a lot of people knew who you were

Can't really say, but I did do a few pics with people that knew who I was. I just randomly got stopped for them. I also signed a few CTWC posters for other players and spectators. I also was granted access to the players restroom which I didn't need.

Daddy Artiaga knew who I was and we were chatting about NES Track and Field techniques that we used in the 80s. Sounds like he knew what he was doing and did fairly well. Felt 😎 know that 2 of the best had their pops knowing who I was.
