hey me and a bunch of other skater, bikers are making a movement to get a skatepark built. I need a name for the movement. I was thinking the "wheels movement" or the "Rollin on wheels movement". Also any suggestions for fundraising?

hold a big street riding "get-together" for a fundraiser and put all proceeds towards a park and present it to your local gov. officials. if you get kicked out of spots, be kind and polite and dont make a fuss, but getting kicked out will show a need for the park.

as far as the name goes, how about something like "park in __city name___"

the owner is selling the land. they started to tear it down one day but instead of getting rid of everything, they just unscrewed all the screws and turned them point side up so nobody could ride it. me and my buddies got a group of 15ish people together and put it back together in an hour and rode it that day for 8 hours straight cuz we knew it would be the last time we would be able to. now its completely gone. just a big slab of concrete with a fence around it. sad day. it was a great park too. it was unlike any park ive ever been to. all outdoors and made of wood and alot of huge box jumps and pyramids. 12 foot halfpipe in the back (sketchy as balls but fun) and 2 8 foot flyboxes laid next to eachother. big gaps. mini pipe hip into a roller to wallride.... ugh i wish i could go back... there were so many things i wanted to ride again but never will. street sucks here too...

hmmm our town has about 10 but we know alot that we call to come ride all the time from about a half hour away so we could scrounge up 20-25 bikers and maybe 20+ more skaters.
