|The 1oth annual Oregon Trifecta was eventually held at Pier Park|
The10th Annual WCS Oregon Tirfecta started with several setbacks. It was first reduced from a Trifecta to a Bifecta, then to a One-Fecta. It was supposed to take place during three days, on August 10th to 12th at Lincoln City, West Linn ad Pier Park, but due to circumstances above and beyond the control of the World Cup Skateboarding (it seems the park was vandalized by a burning couch that damaged

The Oregon Trifecta event has managed to overcome huge obstacles over those 10 years. Especially, since you never know if you are going to a Trifecta, Bifecta or just plain –Fecta. This week-end, it was a Pierfect.
World Cup Skateboarding’s Don Bostick wrote in his Facebook comments:
"The Oregon Trifecta Celebration, went off today at Pier Park! Dave Duncan was on fire! I have to say, that you if you have only heard day at a TV event, you're missing the real Double D in all his Glory. He truly showed the crowd today why he has earned the name, the "Voice of Skateboarding!" The 10th year for the Trifecta, many skaters only today, had the realization that they had spent the past decade being a part of skateboarding history in the Northwest! Rion Linderman proudly responded when asked how many Trifectas have you skated in, " All of them!" For the followers of Trifecta, we remember how a little skinny kid of 8 years old lost a front tooth in his first Trifecta 10 years ago at Lincoln City. He was in with the big boys and lost in the open jam to a full on body slam to face. Well, that little kid won the comp today and now stand 6 feet tall with a Trifecta Championship under his belt, his name: Sky Siljeg!2nd place skater, Josh Rodriguez need medical attention, but shrugged it off and continued to skate with a band aid holding his chin together.
Skaters came as far away as Hawaii and Florida. There's no big prize purse, web cast, skate media but just a huge crew of raw northwest skateboard loving folks! No hype, no bull! In short is was a really fun day! The damn 15 and under skaters put on such a show the proved tough for the pros to duplicate! Then there were the girls! Lizzie, Lizzie, LIzzie! Over the door?? Dave Duncan called a contest make!
Over the past 10 year, so many masters have made their presence at Trifecta. This year featured a small group of NW skaters over 40. Old Alva Team Rider, Chris Cook made the drive up from Pacifica, while Mike Rogers from Florida continued to represent for Sk8 for Cancer, He was so stoked to place 3rd and make $10 over what he paid for $40. Tom Kilroy drove out from Boise, ID and showed the locals how the Old Man Army throws down, while the ageless wonder, Mark Partain skated like a teen ager on his first ever road trip taking the win!
Thanks to Choppy and crew! Many props to Pam Miller and Catherine Inouye for collecting the entry fees and arranging the prize purse as well as taking care of registration while Sector Nine provided tons of product as well as paying for the permit, insurance for the day and cost of the judges, etc. Jamey Prescott, the longest running supporter of Trifecta, with Skull Candy goodies in tow, continues to bring the love!
Shout outs to Charlie Wilkins, now living in Portland, Steve O Brockway and MIke Taylor (Powell Peralta) for judging. I played compute geek for a day and did all the scoring.
I can't wait to see what Tri 11 has in store?
