Also, we will be selling some awesome photos from Hutch, a tattoo!, a bike tune up from ISC, and many other things. Come check it out!

phew. We hope.

Wow, what a relief. Gage and I attended the meeting today and the overall feeling both of us had was very positive. The parks department was very concerned about losing the skateboard park and was assured by the reps from Marion that it will be safe.

Gage and I spoke with the Dean Peterson and Deborah Lawrence after the meeting and they were very happy to meet us and look forward to opportunities to collaborate with events. Their number one concern is the community and they are using the recent rise in cycling popularity to our advantage.
During our conversation there was even mention of the long forgotten park addition that was in the original plan. There main goal is to revamp all of the infrastructure, build some bike courses, and actually generate revenue through cycling events and summer programs. Lets keep our fingers crossed and keep pushing for new stuff!

meeting update

: I guess the indyparks thing is on the agenda. This is not a rally of sorts. It would just really be cool if we had some representation from the skateboard community there. We might not even get to talk. But at least we will be there.

The meeting was just confirmed today. Lets pack this house!!!

The meeting is on Thursday 4/7 from 345 to 5 pm in the city council building. It will be in room 260.


I know it is last minute. We should try and get as many people here as possible. Even if it doesn't happen, I think it would be a good idea to show up.

There will be a meeting held on friday 4/8/11 by the Parks Board at the City County Building (room 260 4 or5pm). I do not have the exact time, and cant find any info about it on the web. There is supposed to be some type of announcement in terms of who will be aquiring the property that the skatepark resides on. I dont think they will be counting on the public attending. I think it would serve our cause best to have as many parents, business owners, and people who care about the future of the skatepark to be in attendance. Please repost this and tell everyone you know. It's time to stand up and get involved. Any further info I can get before hand will be posted ASAP.
