The event achieved its goal of making the skate park opening an expose’ of skateboardings growing popularity in the West Kootenay’s . Nelson, Castlegar, Slocan, Winlaw, Kaslo and Trail skaters came and skated side by side in wonderful show of comradeship. Many people made this event happen and in a follow up post we will list them.
