Whats The Best Nation? DONATION!!!

We can use every penny we can get to keep this place going. We have big plans for the spot, but it will take big money to come through. This place is better than we ever expected and it's all thanks to the people that believe in it. This spot could not be a reality with out the help of donations, skaters who skate it, and the people who get dirty building it! Thanks to everyone who has been a part. A big shout out to Gangsta Jed for getting his hands dirty on just about every work day, and he doesn't even skate, well, not much anyway! That guy is a true diy hero! Keep the donations coming, and as always, PICK UP YER TRASH! Have Fun Too!

Pump Bump in the Works!

Got busy yesterday forming up a new twinkie pump bump in front of the QP. We are having a pour on Saturday and could use extra hands to help out. We will be pouring the bump and finally finishing the up ledge. Sorry for the delay on that one. We want this bump for more speed so we don't have to push so much. It serves limited yet important function so come on out and Get Dirty!!! Saturday, 10-8 at 9:00AM. Bring any tools you may have. Thanks.

What to build???

Ok, we have the money, now the question is what to build next. I think we defiantly need some, or a least one, pump bump(s) to keep the flow of the spot. Also these will help with speed and energy preservation. If you have an idea, instead of just going to try and build it, email me at or get in touch with Bambei on his face book page. We also need some more grindable material in the transition department, so thats something to consider. Hit us up with what's on your mind! Don't forget to bring a trash bag and clean up some of the mess.

Pick Up Yer Trash!!!!!

Altown has been a constant dumping ground for all kinds of trash! It won't kill you to bring a bag of some kind next time you come and fill it up with some bottles, cans, chip bags, and whatever else you find on the ground. We can't very well say we are cleaning the place up if we are constantly trashing it! We are all guilty of leaving stuff behind, so lets try and CLEAN UP OUR SPOT!! This means more than just sweeping! The neighbors have been kind enough to let us use they're trash cans so lets get to work. They don't deserve to look at a landfill and we don't deserve to skate in one! Let's clean up!
