CANCELED: 2011 NW Scoot Christmas Classic Competition

CANCELED: NW Scoot Christmas Classic Competition

The NW Scoot Christmas Classic, sponsored by Phoenix Pro Scooters, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 17th, 2011, has been canceled due to the uncertain future of Skate Barn.

The following is a joint press release from NW Scoot and ScooterDad regarding the 2011 NW Scoot Christmas Classic:

We must regrettably announce that we have been forced to cancel the NW Scoot Christmas Classic originally scheduled for Saturday, December 17th, 2011 at Skate Barn in Renton, WA.

Rumors have been swirling about the possibility of Skate Barn closing due to complications surrounding the lease of the building between the new buyer and the landlord. While we were hearing the rumors as well, we also kept hearing from the current owners of Skate Barn that arrangements had been made to ensure that the Christmas Classic would be good to go with the new owner. We chose not to further spread uncertain rumors by making any announcements since we were being told that our event date was secure.

Your First Comp, Part 2 - What to Expect at a Freestyle Scooter Competition

What to Expect at a Freestyle Scooter Competition

This is the second part in a two-part article about your first competition. Part 1 can be found here: Preparing for a Freestyle Scooter Competition

The Competition Day

You know those times that you were told registration would start? Yeah, well, forget it. Okay, that's not true, but the point is this: very few scooter comps start when they say they do. If registration starts at 9:00AM, you should be there at 8:45AM or earlier, but don't be surprised if they don't start registration until 9:30AM. Hopefully you've pre-registered so this won't be as big of a deal for you if they have a streamlined process for pre-registrered riders.
