Dear Perfection on Wheels and Staff: I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your terrific shows here in Lake County. I also wanted to let you know that you directly contributed to saving a boy's life. During the show you did at Pomo School, we gave away four bike helmets. One of the helmet recipients was a fifth grader who had never worn a helmet. Because of the show and the "cool" helmet, he started wearing it every time he rode his bike. About two weeks after the show. He was involved in a car vs. bike accident. He sustained facial fractures, but because he was wearing his helmet, his head injuries were minor. The doctors as U.C Davis told him that the helmet probably saved his life. Thank you so much for a job well done! You're made a big difference in the boy's life.

I just wanted to let you know that your crew did a great job. They arrived early,and were very prepared and professional. Faculty and students of All Saints Regional School thoroughly enjoyed the two performances. A few of the older students even interviewed the crew for our school paper. Jason Rodriguez sent a clear message to our students about bike safety, saying no to drugs and the importance of staying in school. We enjoyed the special stunts and the show was exciting from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend this show for other schools!

Just wanted you to know that Perfection on Wheels performed today at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School, Aliquippa, PA, for Catholic Schools Week. The show was excellent. The performers were not only exceptionally talented, they also were great role models for our students. They spoke of safety, of staying drug free, and of staying in school. The children from kindergarten to eighth grade were amazed from start to finish. The show lasted around one hour, and they were so patient staying after to answer questions. We work very hard to raise money for our assemblies. This program was worth every penny spent. The children will be left with many great memories of Catholic Schools Week! Please thank Jason and James for us and wish them well as they continue to please many more young people, and know that I will strongly recommend them to other schools.

Once again, I just wanted to say thank you for coming to perform for my school on such short notice. It really was just what we were looking for-- 45 minutes of an exciting performance that could be tied into practice and excellence. And thanks for being so accommodating and doing the show on the school track for us. Everything was set up far enough in advance before the students arrived; it really turned out to be the ideal arrangement for such a large group of viewers. I'm sure East lake will be back in touch with you next year, and if any prospective clients have any questions, feel free to let them know they can talk to me about how smoothly the show went and how the students responded. Take care, and best of luck with your show in the future. Thanks again!

I didn't get a chance to talk to Devin and Dan before they left on Wed. (It was an early-out day at our school and I am responsible for about 100 kids, so it gets a little crazy.) I just wanted to let them know that the show was a big success, the kids loved it and the adults were impressed too! Please pass on my thanks to them and I'll pass on your name to any other schools in our area who are interested in a show.

Thank you so much for the great job at our school last week. The students and teachers were talking about it for several days afterwards. The students clearly understood your message: wear a helmet, if you're happy with your life and yourself you can stay drug-free, if you work hard you can be successful (and even make a living off of your hobby!). Thank you also for the generous performance with ramps. The stunts were AMAZING. You guys ROCK.

My name is Denise Thompson and I have a four year old son and eight year old daughter. I just wanted to let you all know first hand of the positive impact you are making in children's lives. My daughter attends second grade at P.W. Engvall Elementary in Lemoore, Ca. I took my son along to an assembly last year when you were there performing and he caught the BMX bug. He was only three at the time and by his fourth birthday took off the training wheels and went wild. He rides his bike rain, shine, and even 3:30 in the morning, well that was this past November and him and his father stayed up late building a ramp. His father promised it would be ready when he woke up, well at the young age of four everything is literal. We awoke to the sound of our storm door closing and knew right away we had better get out there. We convinced him to go back to bed, but that only lasted until 5:45 a.m. My son is extremely energetic and BMX freestyle has been the best thing to ever happen. When he is riding he is very focused, disciplined and most of all has a determination that is beyond anything I have ever seen. He falls over and over again and will not quit until he has mastered the trick he is trying. Al l the neighbors, older kids as well as the adults, get such a huge blast out of watching him do tricks. One neighbor got such a kick out of his excitement he got Gregory the DVD "RAD" to watch. It is still previewed at least four times a week. Then about a month ago Dennis informed me of a site bmxstunts.com and he is now using his fine motor skills every morning as he spends at least an hour previewing all the stunts, he cannot read so he looks for the first letter and counts up from the bottom to find his favorites, then heads out the door with his helmet and is ready to attempt the ones is feels confident. He has been trying to coax the neighbor boys into laying under his ramp so he can jump them, luckily I was able to convince him to master jumping his skateboard first and then we would move on to one of his sisters baby dolls ha!ha! This was inspired by jump a friend and the superman. Last night we had to buy pegs for the front of his bike because he now wants to do the nose picker. It is really exciting to see that 11months have went by and he is still as excited as the first day after watching you all perform. I would advise any parent out there to look into BMX Freestyle just as they do karate, soccer and so many other activities for discipline and fun. Yes, people do think I am crazy allowing him to try the things he does on his bike, but all I can say is he gets the same scrapes, bumps and bruises from playing at the park or Burger King play areas. He knows helmets are important and is the first one to point out to the bigger kids when they don't have one on or their chin strap is not hooked that they in his words are "stupid heads and will get hurt". Anyway, I can not thank you all enough for the profession you have chosen and the time you spend educating the kids on the sport. Freestyle has so much to offer beyond the bike and I am thrilled my son is taking such a love for it. BMX Freestyle is truly a defining tool molding his morals, outlook and over all determination in success on the tricks he tries which will prove very valuable in his life achievements. Thank you again and keep performing as well as working on the swing,
Denise Thompson and Gregory

As usual, the BMX stunt show was phenomenal! Eric & William fired up our audience! They were amazing! Our assistant principal got some great pictures and gave them to the team on a disk. They had a great message for the students here at Ramona Elementary School....the most important message of course was to not talk your grammar into lying down and then jump over her with your bicycle:) Everyone had a great time and we will be sure to book you guys early for next year! Thanks so much for setting up a great assembly! Please give my name and phone number to anyone that needs a recommendation!

Our students and staff really enjoyed having "Perfection on Wheels" perform at R. J. Neutra Elementary School. Eric and Sean were very professional in their presentation, and their skills with wheels were extraordinary. They kept the audience clamoring for more. It was refreshing to hear them promote education and values and how making good choices allowed them to pursue their careers. The link below will allow you to view photos taken of Sean and Eric as they performed for the students of R.J. Neutra Elementary School.http://www.central.k12.ca.us/neutra/activities/bmx.html Thanks again for a great show. We look forward to a return visit. Sincerely, Curtis Elia

Your show was the best we have had. I have been booking shows for 4+ years & yours is now at the top of my recommendation list. I was impressed with the show, but more impressed with the safety & anti-drug message. It was subtle, yet effective! Many kids, teachers & parents are still raving about the show.
Thank You So Much!
