Thanks to everyone who came out to the Go Skateboarding Day events we had on Tuesday. The Game of SKATE contest was a huge success, and the Best Trick contests out at the foundation featured some of the best skating the spot has seen. Congrats to all the winners! Fox News Charlotte was out filming the events and came through with a great piece on Go Skateboarding Day, showcasing the events as well as helping us raise awareness for the skate plaza movement here in Charlotte.

This year Black Sheep teamed up with vitaminwater to organize an awesome event for 2011 Go Skateboarding Day. Go Skateboarding Day is one June 21 every year and we’re always trying to create a fun and FREE event for all the skaters and avoid the hassle of cops. This year we will be having a big Game of SKATE contest, along with food, drinks and a live DJ. The Southend Field House has offered up their parking lot for the day, so we don’t have to worry about being hassled by anyone. The Game of SKATE will have 2 divisions, 17 and under and 18 and up. There will be prizes from DC, DGK, Gold Wheels, and Black Sheep Skate Shop. The winner of the under 17 division will also receive an all expense paid trip to Camp Woodward, provided by vitaminwater.
The contest will start around 1pm, but feel free to show up a little earlier to sign up and enjoy some free food and drinks.
**ALL participants must sign a waiver to participate. Anyone under 18 years old must have a parent present when the waiver is signed. Waivers are available at Black Sheep and during registration on the day of the event.**
After the Game of SKATE Contest Tuesday we’ll be celebrating Go Skateboarding Day at Twenty Two by playing skate videos all night. We’ll have a projector set up and a DVD player and VCR, so feel free to bring some of your favorites and maybe we’ll play them! The boards from the Let the Good Times Roll II art show are up too, so if you haven’t seen those this will be a good night to check them out. In addition to skate videos, DJ Dirtsquad will be playing music all night.
