HEY – ANTISOCIALITES. SEE YOU FRIDAY – FOR SOME SWEEEEEET SHOES ….DRINKS…..LATE NIGHT MINI RAMP SK8BOARD SESH …….AND RAD THE MOVIE!
If you’ve been down to The Plaza recently you know that it’s a pig sty. A quick look around will treat your eyes to a sweeping panorama of urban detritus… sticker backs, candy packages, dirty rigs, paper cups, syringe packaging, plastic bags, burnt garbage, sketchy-looking and faintly aromatic discoloured portions of ground… it’s enough to make you think the place was just four or five blocks from Main and Hastings. This isn’t a good thing because: a) falling on the ground at a skatepark shouldn’t be a health-endangering experience, and b) the idea that The Plaza would turn into an unofficial garbage dump was and continues to be one of the main concerns of the park’s most vocal and motivated opponents. However you want to look at it, keeping The Plaza clean makes a lot of sense. As such, the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition is doing a clean-up there on Monday, so anyone and everyone who skates The Plaza should come down and help out. We’ll be there at 7PM on Monday, September 10th and will be armed with rubber gloves, garbage bags, a pressure washer, and a few of those robo-claw trash-picker-upper things that you often see wielded by people who are doing their community service on the side of the highway.
It’s the 2007 version of the Jak’s skate comp. Come one, come all and enjoy a sunny Saturday at China Creek.
