So the 2nd annual skate event in Harvard has been on my mind ever since it went down last year. I’d started some initial planning and organizing with help from my friend Garrett and Loaded/Otang, but it was still in the Google doc, outlined brainstorm format. Well late last night well I was procrastinating writing a French essay, I decided to get the ball officially kicked off and just make the Facebook event. After inviting a handful of people who came last year and fielding some initial stoke-filled comments, I came back this morning to the following numbers:
25 MAYBE ATTENDING
9 Not Attending
Pretty crazy turnout for the 24ish hour mark post-creation eh? I’ve already started pre-registration and that’s already at the 30+ registered rider mark. NUTS.
If you’re interested about finding out more about the event, head to the official event pages here:
If you’re interested in registering, send me an email at email@example.com with which events you plan to compete in (DH, freeride/slide jam, and/or flatland). The sponsors are lining up quick, the amenities are going to be nuts, the numbers of riders will be huge and stoke will be flowing in unprecedent amounts!
Hey man! I’m definitely having an incredible time here. And if you don’t wanna be a newbie, you’ve gotta take that board out of the trunk and ride it every day!! It doesn’t look like I’m going to be heading back to Paris during my stay in France, but there is a very cool group of guys there that would be happy to session I’m sure and there are a good number that speak English pretty well. I’ll email you some contact info.. Now go skate that board!
