If you live in Saskatoon and haven't already heard, Jason and myself along with a group of other volunteers including Brennan and Christian from Momentum Marketplace and Sheldon at Undergrind are working towards getting an indoor skate facility for the skaters of Saskatoon. The facility will be run by volunteers and completely free to skate. Our long term goal is to provide a permanent yearly indoor place to skate in the winters.
We have found a place where we will be able to skate, and now all we need to do is raise money for start up costs such as wood for building, supplies, and the biggest one of all: liability insurance.
So a bunch of our suppliers have hooked us up with prizes to raffle off to raise money. We will be selling tickets until Jan. 1st, and the draw will take place the first week of 2012. $5 will get you 1 ticket, and $10 will get you 3. The more tickets you buy, the more prizes you can win. ThatÃƒÂ¢â‚¬â„¢s right you can win more than one prize if your name is drawn more than once. Most importantly 100% of the money from the tickets goes towards start up costs for the skate facility. So basically a donation to support Saskatoon skateboarding gets you an entry form into a contest for great prizes. Undergrind and Momentum Market each have their own set of separate prizes they're raffling for, so if you buy tickets from more than one shop you can get different brands. Here's a list of prizes we've been generously provided by our distributors:
- 1 Pair of Lakai shoes.
- 2 Fourstar shirts.
- 1 Fourstar beanie.
- 1 Fourstar hat.
- 1 Chocolate board.
- 1 pair of Spitfire wheels.
- 1 Spitfire wallet.
- 1 Spitfire belt.
- 1 pair of Independent Trucks.
- 1 Santa Cruz longboard.
- 1 Diamond Supply Co. snapback hat.
- 1 Diamond Supply Co. hoodie.
- 1 pair of Fallen shoes.
- 1 pair of KR3W pants.
- 2 KR3W shirts.
- 2 pairs of Supra shoes.
Big thanks to Nate and Kevin at Supra Distribution, Pryce at Centre Distribution, and Macky at One Distribution for the prizes!
