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

C.A.S.E Annual General Meeting
7 PM, Monday May 16
Colonel Walker Room Inglewood Community Association Hall
1740 24 Avenue SE
This is a reminder of the CASE Annual General Meeting on Monday night. Our AGM is an opportunity for CASE to share with Calgary’s skate community what we have accomplished, what we are working on, and what we have planned. It will be a chance for us to answer your questions, and hear your ideas and suggestions about what we can do for skateboarding in Calgary. If you want to get involved in any of CASE’s efforts, you can check into that opportunity as well
We are making progress on getting an indoor skatepark and more outdoor skateparks built in Calgary, as well as making our city a more skate friendly place. The progress is not as quick as we’d all like, but the progress is definite. We’re making a difference for Calgary skateboarders and we hope you can make in on May 16th so you can be up-to-date on developments as a member of the skate community!
A “closed” meeting will be held tonight at City Hall to discuss the three possible location for the “Wheel Park” in Trail, BC. Additionally there is talk of changing the name of the organization to reflect the varied activity users.
Over 100 skaters and supporters rode down Baker Street yesterday escorted by local police and fire dept. At the gathering speakers reinforced that as a group the Nelson skatepark is more likely to succeed.
