Thanks for all of you guys who could make it out to the Pumpkin Carve last weekend.
We had a great turn out, great contests and gave away some pretty sweet prizes!

Many thanks to Paul (directly above..mustache and all) who owns Salty’s in Five Points for playing a huge role in getting the Pumpkin Carve together, helping provide some prizes and throwing us an after party! A very successful event and you can definitely expect another one in the spring.

Here’s a montage video from the beginners and advanced slide competitions:

Sustainability and PC Update!

This past Wednesday Carolina Skate had a table at the Sustainability fair promoting alternative forms of transportation. We’re featured in the Daily Gamecock along with the rest of the groups at the fair encouraging all sorts of things like political involvement and biodiesel development. Read the article here.

Lastly, great turn out Tuesday night for the skate.
We had something like 40 people there bombing garages and skating around the city.
We hope to see more of that!
