2009 Corning Park Event

11 October 2009

Thank you everyone who came out yesterday to show your support and share some good times with us, and a special thanks to Matt James & The Progress Notes.

We had a lot of donated gift certificates to hand out through the day which resulted in a lot of games of skate, a high jump contest, a best launch box trick contest, and a best trick in the whole course contest. We also had 3 trophies to give out and had everyone vote at the end of the day for who …

Festival International Sports Extreme

10 July 2009

Though it has nothing to do directly with the Parkersburg Skate Plaza, I just caught this new teaser/promotion of this years F.I.S.E. (Festival International Sports Extreme) event held in Montpellier, France where they apparently don’t have the same problems between the sports as we do here in the U.S. which is really great to see. It is an extremely well put together video with some amazing tricks as well, so check it out.
