Airspeed Gabriel Park Skatepark concept

I have been trying for a couple of weeks to get Parks to let me have a look at Airspeed’s winning concept for Gabriel Park and there it is on the Airspeed website.

Thanks to Randy Gawlik for the tip.

Pier Park and Glenhaven skatepark Ts

We have reissued the sold out Pier Park and Glenhaven Opening Day t-shirts through Skate Portland on CafePress. They’ll cost you a little more because they cost us more and you’ll have to pay shipping but if you want one in one of our sold out sizes, that’s the only place to get them.

We still have some women’s and kids sizes of the original Pier Park shirts in our web store.

Thanks for your support.

We want to acknowledge the efforts of a few folks for their recent efforts on our behalf and donations to the cause.

Urban Soul took on some of our SPS merchandise and made a few sales before getting out of the skateboard business to concentrate on their art and tattoo trade.

Then Jay Smay and Rebel Skates put on a benefit raffle to benefit SPS at the Clay Wheels show. the night before the Irrigon skatepark grand opening.

Long-time SPS supporter Larry King recently made a substantial donation to help us continue to advocate for skateparks in Portland.

Thanks also to Flipper for running the merchandise table for us at the Glenhaven skatepark opening.

Our deepest gratitude to all of you.
