Are these open to anyone as long as we're old and foolish? I hope so as I live in Sheffield and know a couple of like-minded fools that would love to come along, especially to the old Bolehills track >;-)

How do we get our names down and get details then?

Cheers

Phew - thank fook for that as Dordy's a worse rider than me!

Was talking to my brother Hootski70 last night about this and if you make the Bolehills track a morning ride we'll bring a BBQ and some bacon down for butties ;-)

We'll catch up with you for as much as we can on this weekend as it's gonna be a good laugh by the looks of the pictures and stories so looking forward to meeting you all!

Greg, I plan to attend, but it will also coincide timingwise with me moving premises to open a new LiferBMX shop - so it may become tricky... but I'll do everything in my power to be there!

Right in the middle of my particular neck of the woods there, so I might come along and show myself up too.

Infact it would take me around 10 mins over the fields on the bike for the BBQ!   ;D ;D

Went down to the Bole hills last weekend and the guys were doing the pre-season prep on the track , i mentioned that Rad was planning an event there and found out there is a web site called bolehills forever , might be worth giving these guys a headsup as they all love to ride and are desparatly trying to get the track up to championship standard . They also work very hard keeping the track up to scratch  :daumenhoch:

Can you give me some directions to get to the stops on this or post codes for the sat.-nav., as I can't seem to find any where online for this Wakefield skatepark, let alone the others. Thanks

The Wakefield Skatepark is at the Thornes Park Athletics Stadium.

http://www.wakefield.gov.uk/CultureAndLeisure/LeisureFacilities/sportscentres/ThornesParkAthleticsStadium/default.htm

You drive straight past the Main Building and the skate park is at the rear... I was there yesterday.

Don't worry about mad skills. I think alot of people are just going for the experience not a competition. Just relax and enjoy.

What time are you meeting up on saturday at the Bolehills track guys?

Not sure how long my pass will be stamped for playing out and about as I've got a lot of skatepark sessions in recently, but will be meeting up with you lot at some point on saturday to say hi and have a burn round the track :daumenhoch:
