SPOM (Skate Park of Memphis) will be closing in a few months. After that, there will be no more skate park in Memphis.
The guys at SPOM met with the director of parks and recreation. The Parks director is under the impression that there are only perhaps a 100 hundred skaters in Memphis. Not true, y'all.
So there's gonna be a demo next week to show the Park people that we damn well need a skate park.
In order to get funding for a public skate park from City council they have to be able to convince the council that there is a HUGE demand for a skate park. If less than 50 show up they will not be convinced.
Time: THURSDAY April 24th, 3:30-5:30
Where: Memphis Fairgrounds
(Exact place at fairgrounds not mentioned but since it's outdoors I'd think it's easy to find).
