Latvian Skateboard Summer Camp 2010

Post by Jani Soderhall » Mon Jul 05, 2010 3:21 pm

Gustavs told me he has put together a slalom camp for kids 10-14 and he expects about 20 kids to sign up. The camp will be sponsored by the city council and the Latvian skateboard Federation, and provide about food and transport.


ConeRacing is also providing some equipment to use and give away.

Thank you Jani for help already - it will happen but the only change will be the date:
Tomorrow, I will write an offical application to the city council that I want to change the dates of the camp (to mid August).

I was in a hospital for a week (had my hand operation), so now it would be just one week left
to inform/find kids who are interested in trying something quite new and unseen for them (slalom), getting all the permissions (from fire department that the place for the camp is safe enough for kids, from health inspection that the food that will be given is good etc.etc.).

In mid August my hand will be ok without any bandage so it will be much easier to do everything (has anyone ever tried to shave with left hand? :D) and I will have plenty of time to get permissions (besides, which parent would let his kid to go to a camp, where the superiors left hand is bandaged and full of small metal peaces? :D)

The camp will take place - that will be one of my pleasing duty as a slalom skater ;)
