***OFFICIAL 72HR ANNOUNCEMENT***
Hey everyone, things are looking great for the comp this weekend, if possible I'd like to finish on Saturday. We are expecting 12-24kts from the NE-E and stronger on Sunday, but possible storms and it turns S. I'd like everyone there at 9AM for registration and warm up then start at 10AM.
BP is bringing a kicker and a hand rail plus Bosch with some connects rails.
BBQ sandwiches and baked beans for lunch, because there isn't much out there.
Please register for this event just need the critical information (Name, Number, email) if you have filled out the full registration from a past event. If you haven't purchased school or individual membership, fill out the registration form then go to paypal site (pinned post).
We are going to have lots of schwag from Dakine, and hyperflex to give out. Also we finally got the custom Slingshot boards in, so I'm thinking photo shoot and kite demos on Sunday.
Message us if you need a place to stay and let us know if you can make it on Friday night.
Directions to North Skyway park.
