North East Skate Park Series

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

The North East Skate Park Series day in Corowa is upon us, with youth from Corowa and sur­rounds en­cour­aged to come out and com­pete, en­joy and sup­port each other for a fun day.

If you can ride, re­gard­less of how well, you are en­cour­aged to join in on the day and be a part of the an­nual event at the Corowa Skate Park.

Re­cently, Corowa’s youth have been busy over the school hol­i­days pre­par­ing the Corowa Skate Park for the event to be held on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27 from 2pm-6pm.

The event was due to be held on Oc­to­ber 20 but due to in­clement weather was can­celled.

Un­der the guid­ance and di­rec­tion of lo­cal 15-year-old artist Phoenix Hunter-Howie, a colour­ful re­vamp of the street art in­side the skate park shel­ter sheds has been un­der­way.

Many hours of paint­ing have pro­duced some strik­ing and ex­cit­ing art­work that is sure to in­spire com­peti­tors as they take to the ramps in their re­spec­tive events.

A lot of ef­fort went into the paint­ing which took four days, and a lot of fun was had.

Co-or­di­nated by the In­digo Shire Coun­cil, the North East Skate Park Series is an an­nual skate/BMX/scooter com­pe­ti­tion held in 10 lo­cal towns across the Vic­to­rian north-east and Corowa, and has been run­ning for more than half a decade.

It is a free en­try all age event, with en­try cat­e­gories from be­gin­ners to pro avail­able.

Prizes and medals are on of­fer as well as DJ mu­sic and de­mos for added en­ter­tain­ment.

BBQ food and drink is also avail­able for pur­chase. Reg­is­tra­tion for events opens at 1.30pm and waiver forms must be also signed be­fore com­pet­ing.

This is a drug, al­co­hol and smoke free event and is spon­sored by a Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil com­mu­nity grant.
