2011 Go Skate Day

Yesterday, being the Summer Solstice and, hence, the longest day of the year, was the perfect day for local skateboarders to grab their decks and shred up Creekside Skate Park in Coldstream. There were hot dogs and water being served with all proceeds going to charity, prizes for the winners of the various competition groups and all kinds of swag being given out. West 49 and Fulcrum Skateboards from Vernon put on the show and provided all the prizes. I spent the evening there, photographed the competition, ate a few dogs and had a good time.

This is Scotty Gwyer. Manager of West 49 in Vernon and the coordinator of this fine event.
