We had a terrific skateboard contest and some really nice boards for each winner of their age group. We had a “Best of Trick” contest and the winner was awarded a set of pads. Every skater at the park on that day was given a “Bern” helmet to promote safe skating. There were 42 skateboard related deaths in 2010 and we want to make sure each and every skater skating Andy Hovis Community Skatepark will be skating safely. Please remember Safety first!
