Alright we’re not really making headlines, but we did recently show up in a Yahoo New article about how to raise money for skate parks.

We have also made an appearance on the website of everyone’s favorite, The Tea Party! Apparently this blasphemous waste of money rendered them speechless because they didn’t have anything to say about it, they just posted the News and Sentinel’s cell phone video.

At this point the city has asked that we discontinue this timeline for safety concerns, as this is a live construction site and members of the Parkersburg Skate Plaza Foundation are not insured if something bizarre happens while we are on site. So, unfortunately, from now on if you want to see what is new you will have to visit the site yourself and from behind the fence.

UPDATE: The city just sent over some more pictures of the park for August 18th.

For all of you out of towners pointing out the awesome kink rail in the background, its not all connected, not that it wouldn’t be possible but the E.L.I.T.E. Sports Center (the owners of the rail) are going to be our neighbors for a long time and we want to keep a good relationship with them, so please don’t skate this rail.
