It is being reported on MountainFM that Trail will be seeking provincial funding from BC’s Community Recreation Program to cover a majority of the approximate $450,000 price tag of their new skatepark. The kicker is that this was prioritized over a potential pedestrian/bridge crossing replacement which could be extremely pricey and has had little discussions as yet.
Finally some forward thinking for the youth and community of Trail…well done to Trails Mayor Dieter Bogs
Jeremy Elkin presents “Poisonous Products.” A short film shot entirely in New York throughout the past year. Come enjoy a brief night of continuous NY skateboarding and music. Free admission. 2 $ beers. Lots of free stuff.
Being one of the youngest filmers on the Canadian skateboard scene at the age of 22 years old, Jeremy Elkin is already a veteran with 10 years filming experience under his belt. He is a humble Montrealer who has made a name for himself by creating skateboard videos and capturing some of Canada’s best skaters from east to west with his particularly creative style of filming. Jeremy is a skater and a motivator when he’s behind the camera, showing mad patience and confidence in the skater he’s capturing which makes filming with him a productive good time. He’s always good to go and his batteries are always charged!— Barry Walsh
