We may get knocked back, but you can’t keep us down for long! We hope everyone fared ok during the hurricane, and minimal damage occurred if any. A big thanks goes out to the service providers from all over the state and beyond! We are very grateful for your hard work! We’ve got some grant applications out and some fundraisers in the works for the next few months in anticipation of Team Pain Skateparks arrival! Stay tuned everyone!
Here is some press if you weren’t able to attend the public meetings
The meetings went well this past weekend. Tito from Team Pain Skateparks came down and revealed a more streamlined/affordable design for us. We had some good feedback from the community, and there was a genuine interest from Chatham County elected officials. However, we still have a lot of work to do!
Please continue to write your County Commissioners and state your support for this project. We are going to continue to fundraise throughout the rest of the year. We have some grant requests that are under review as well as some fundraisers in the works. We also have a gofundme page.
If you are a business owner or know any business owners that would like to be a sponsor of the park, then let us know. We can get you a sponsorship package ASAP.
Lets make this happen people! The revamped design has a ballpark price tag of $200K. We have about $90K in the bank. We can’t do this without you!
Hey everyone!!! We are going to have a couple of public meetings on Saturday, August 6th with Team Pain Skateparks. The first meeting will be at 1:00 pm at Lake Mayer at the skatepark location. The second meeting will be at The Sentient Bean at 6:00 pm. Make arrangements to be at one or both!
About 10 people showed up in support of the skatepark. Although our funding request was not on the agenda, we were allowed to speak. Several of us spoke on behalf of the skatepark, and we were even acknowledged for our work and dedication thus far. It remains to be seen if we will receive any funding.
You can and still need to contact your county commissioners and vocalize your support! Highlight the items listed below in your letters!
– Ours is a one-time request; we will not come back and ask for
– There is a real need for this facility.
– Skateboarding is safe.
– Volunteers have done a tremendous amount of work to date.
You can contact your elected officials at the link below!
Happy Go Skateboarding Day!!
