Attached are some photos I took with a disposable camera from a Toy demo in the early late 90s, I'm thinking around 98 or so. Brian Anderson, Elissa, Kerry Getz and Maldonado were still on the team. The demo took place in the parking lot of the Skate Shack in Lisle, Illinois. I believe that Josh Harmony rode for this shop at one point long before he was even a glimmer in the Sect's eye. Anyways I'd like to pass on these photos and thank Ed and the rest of the team at the time for putting on demos under such shitty circumstances (homemade ramps, sketchy parking lot pavement) before skateparks were prevalent. It's 11 or so years later, I'm 28 years old now, still skating, and still a loyal pawn.

Ed does a feeble on a ramp to spine...
BA talks with some kids.
Kid: "Dude, if you guys ever need sex, my moms a hooker..."
BA: "Is she one of those two moms behind me?"
Kid: "Yeah, the one with the 'mom shorts' on."
Caption 1: Ed, when he was much skinnier.
Caption 2: Ed attempts to get in the van before he is mobbed by adoring fans. It's tough to be a rock-star.
Elissa in the van shooting kids in the face with her squirt-gun.
The demo action. Kerry front boards, ed walks around bigfoot style, the rest of the team is in the shade drinking water.
