The Rumble In Ramona went down October 17-18, 2008. Where the fuck is Ramona you ask? I'm claiming it's the Turlock of San Diego—about an hour east in the cuts. Basically the idea was to build a vert ramp, have a big session, drink lots of beer, and have a good time with the end result being Darren and his homies would get a free vert ramp. Well shit worked out and trophies were awarded. Whether or not it made history, we'll let you decide...
