SALENA DE LA CRUZ

For the first time ever...SkatePark Investors is coordinating two funfilled days of rocking, rolling and bustin' out.
We will be hosting a skatebording competition on Saturday, July 13th at noon, and in-line skating on Sunday, July 14th
We need your help. We are looking for prize donations for the winners, for the crowd, and donations for the insurance
We need volunteer judges and crowd control.
We'd love to have some pros come out and tear it up. Also would love to have some bands come out and ROCK for us. Let
me remind you we are non-profit, but maybe we can work something out.
Thanks to all who have helped in the past, and who will help in the future because of you skating continues to create
new talent and keep the old begging for more!!!

ROCK!!!! SIC Apparel has already confirmed donations. If you want to join in the exteme fun and competition contact myself

7/16/07 CAN'T WAIT, CAN'T WAIT! SKATE COMPETITION
Although, there will be no skate competition this year, I
just can't seem to let my baby go. Maybe, it's that this town could really be doing more for these kids and really should

energy I will be working my butt off to bring back the skate competitions with a vengence next year! So I need your help!

We're ready to bust out and rock it out! Are you? Help out
the cause that we've been trying to keep going since 1997 when it began!!
There will be NO skate competition this year-2007. I am sorry. I have
had so much going on in my life and not enough outside help. Hopefully, I can have another one next year,but we'll see. Until
next time keep bustin' out! However, if you want to see a bigger and better skate park or skate competition we need more involvement
from skaters and the community. Let me know if you'd like to help out so we can make next year's the best and biggest ever!!!
DESPITE THE FACT THAT THE COMPETITION WAS CANCELLED I STILL WENT TO THE
PARK AND CELEBRATED WITH THE SKATERS. WE DID HAVE SOME LOW KEY CONTESTS SO AS TO BE ABLE TO GIVE AWAY THE PRIZES THAT OUR
GREAT SPONSORS DONATED. See below for details:
Bud Hess ran over the competition in skateboarding, while Cody Harlan took away honorable mention. Hess received
a deck from Zumiez. A complete skateboard donated by Powell skateboards was raffled off and Kyle Mehling walked away
with it, happy as a clam. Seth and Timateo De La Cruz commanded every category of in-line because honestly no one else
was there. De La Cruz busted a misty flip for a certificate from In-Line Warehouse for new blades.
Everyone that competed received various DVDs from SkateParks USA and USD. They also received stickers, slippers
from Juggernaut and so much more. Thanks for all of the products.
We may not have had an official competition this year, with people in the crowd giving applause for favorites,
but next year will rock the park!
We have new plans already underway and many local businesses will be asked to join our cause. We have some
new recruits that will be joining our team and hopefully help to make the 10 year anniversary of skate comps in Molalla the
biggest and best yet. If anyone wants aboard, we could use your help, let me know.
I look forward to bustin' out with everyone in the years to come!

|Skaters have decided it's time for them to get involved-about time, let's bust out!
|Relaxation and Rejuventation
|To some skating is a sport to others it's a time for them to relax. If commands both theories.
|Vanquishing the vert!
|Dakotah rides the vert wall like a pro. Many could not when the park opened in 2000.
|He got game!
|Kyle Meling shows he knows how to drop it like it's hot! He's really making it!
