I’m going to drive over the border one more time before ABS Open Nationals and compete in the Goldfinger comp. The TdB at Vertical last year was a lot of fun and I am sure that this year will be too! I’ll be test-driving a new pair of comp shoes.  After having to wear too-big warm-up shoes at my last two comps, I’m hoping these will work out for me.
