May 16 Benefit for FDR Skatepark

Flyer for 16MAY10 Benefit Delaware Josh is involved with the fundraiser planned above to be held at FDR Skatepark. Link to the post he sent me (with a direct link to the flyer) here. “Delaware josh, a very essen­tial dude as far as build­ing & rip­ping the park is orga­niz­ing some skate related action for any & all to par­tic­i­pate in such as a pos­si­ble smoke bomb time trial around the park, spine con­test & a janky micro quar­ter con­test as well. also vert dogs, dont for­get — we fixed up the vert ramp last year & its good to go, and for the mini-​​ramp champs, we’ve got you cov­ered as well. we’ve also lined up some grub, merch/​swap & most impor­tantly some amaz­ing spon­sors who have put up a ton of awe­some stuff for us to sell & raf­fle off & every red cent we raise on this day will go directly into the park. being a hand built park that gets used and abused as much as it does, it con­stantly needs repair, paint & of course, expan­sion is always a goal. just like the best cus­tom sickle, its never done & always needs atten­tion. so stuff some cash in your pocket for some killer stuff & to help us raise some loot for the park — strap your board to your bars or sis­sy­bar & plan on spend­ing all day with the scum under 95 in south philly. it will be a day you will never for­get.” Get down there and con­tribute! The park is look­ing great this year. DE Josh orga­nized a cleanup this past Saturday that was a huge suc­cess. He said they painted pretty much every­thing and filled in cracks and uneven con­crete all over the ground and walls. They still have to do a lit­tle cop­ing repair, but the park is look­ing great from what I hear. Josh has been plan­ning some new con­struc­tion and expan­sion for this sum­mer based on what pro­ceeds they can raise at this fundraiser. I have been work­ing to get a ship­ping con­tainer or other suit­able stor­age shed down there so every­one can store their tools, equip­ment, and left­over mate­r­ial safely as this will facil­i­tate ren­o­va­tions and expan­sion work like woah. Big ’tings pop­pin’ this year in the Philly skate scene across all fronts so get involved! Contact Josh Marcinizyn at 302.528.0981 or delawarejosh@​gmail.​com to help out with this par­tic­u­lar fundraiser or to con­tribute what­ever you can to keep FDR awe­some. A few hours of your time, some donated mate­r­ial or equip­ment, a six-​​pack or a cou­ple bucks goes a long way down there…

  1. HAHA, I can’t even lie, I got a kick out of that one Ki. Manny pads aside, I hope ya show up. Let’s do the damn thing!

  2. That shit seems gnarly. I may come down, and film some of the mad­ness. I dunno about skat­ing. Events like this turn FDR into a shark tank, and I don’t wanna be the chum.
