For the most part, kickoff shows don't usually attract high-caliber rides, which in turn results in poor spectator turn out. Well, this common symptom didn't affect Robbie Bryant's (KEG Media) event one bit—even with the impending storm on the horizon. Luckily enough, the rain was light, the weather turned out great, and the registration line stretched down the long entryway to Columbus Acres park, in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Even though it was the first Slamily Reunion, the show went down in the books as a success. Next year's installment is sure to see lots of familiar faces along with many new branches on the Slamily tree.
