Skate Like A Girl is setting up to become the Vera Project equivalent for skaters in Seattle. They have been given an office at the Seattle Center, just a kingpin’s throw from the new park, and they are already starting to program some cool events.
The first one will be during the Bite of Seattle, which is interesting because the Bite’s management were the first to come out against the SC campus location for the park.
I guess this just shows that when people come together, good things can and will happen. This is really great news, because for a while there was talk of shutting down the entire park during events like the Bite and Bumbershoot. It’s still not known what will be happening during the latter.
So when you’re down at the Bite this year, bring your board, and contribute to this event. Make it positive. That way we can set the right foot forward and ensure that the skatepark will always be open for skaters during the 30+ days a year that there are events programmed at the Seattle Center.
Bite This! and go SLAG!
