skatepark meetings?
: : This would be to go to the meetings of people who create the skateparks. I would be another voice amongst the skateboarders who skate bowls against all the dumb soccer moms who want these lame ass skateparks for their little kids.
: :
: : : Two things work really well :
: : :
: : : PETITIONS - with LOTS of signatures.
: : :
: : : And bodies - Get asd many people to go to those meetings as you can.
: : :
: : : We had a group that petitioned the city (here in Austin) to build our skate park. In Houston, the same thing happened with a group called P.U.S.H. (Public Use Skateparks in Houston). It works! Politicians listen to big groups.
: : :
: : : Cheers and good luck!
: : : Biff
: : :
: : : : I don't think a single rollerskater is going to have much influence. You may want to rally the other skateboarders who want more vert/bowl stuff than street.
: always remember rome was built bean by bean.
: joe and i have also been attending council meetings regarding the upgrade of the shed indoor sk8park. thats the one we took you to bernhard.
: we have found that if you cant dazzle them with brilliance, you can baffle them with bullshit.
: it seems that we will be getting a top class facility with plenty of vert.
: i hope you can achieve similar results. good luck.
: : : : : Has anyone gone to the meetings on bldg. the parks and been listened to as a rollerskater? I talked to my friend and he said I need to go because all of us older skaters hate these kiddie launch myself onto my ass skateparks with zero flow. They are more dangerous then something with just a curve and flow. And boring if you arent into rails/launches. But all the soccer moms was these boxes and rails cause their little kids like them and say vert/bowls are more dangerous.
