The Bristol Board Meeting – October 17, 2015
While many of us are familiar with the coming Toronto Board Meeting (this weekend!), the lovely people at Lush Longboards (with the tireless help of some very special friends) bring you the eighth annual charity skate in support of CLIC Sargent (children’s cancer charity) and the British Heart Foundation.
Rider of all ages – from eleven to in their fifties – will take the old railway path about fifteen miles from Bath to Bristol, and spread skateboarding love the entire way. Office attire is the order of the day: suits and ties please.. though any interesting costumes are obviously well appreciated!
Mid-way there will be a pop-up slide jam on a hill known as ‘Backache’ which handily feeds right off the route, and a flatland dance session as usual at the halfway cafe – time for some showboating.
Everyone always looks absolutely knackered when they eventually ache in with chafed legs and bruised soles. However this won’t be the time for rest as their final destination is St George’s skate-park. No skateboarder – however tired – will be able to resist the old-school bowl or fun footpaths surrounding it.
Finally there will be a raffle, expect some sweet sweet prizes. Previous years have seen amazing cakes and even some highly prized homemade gin given away (as well as your usual skate swag). Check out the photos below to be further inspired to get stoked and raise some cash for charity.
