2010 Skate Comp & Concert
If you didn’t come to the event yesterday you really missed out. We want to thank all the bands, Matt James & The Progress Notes for coming out the second year in a row, Marc Noland (he told me the new name of his band yesterday but I’ve already forgot), Living On Stolen TIme, and Revulvas.
Thank you to Shawn Sorrie and Alpha Omega for giving us a discount on the ramps and mc’ing the competition. Thank you to FOX Parkersburg for helping us get the word out and giving out some free prizes during the event. Thank you to the skate shops in California who donated prizes, thank you to Unknown Skate Boards for donating the deck, thank you to the local stores who donated prizes, and thank you to everyone at the foundation. Katie Petrish said we were able to raise about $550, though next time we will have to find someone more intimidating to work the gates than our soccer moms who said many people would just walk right around them or claim to be “with the band” and not pay.

I saw a lot of others taking photos as well, so if you are one of them feel free to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them here for everyone to check out. I know Casey Hardman and Eric Cunningham were both filming so there will probably be some edits from them coming soon also.
