Washington, D.C. riders listen up, Marc Ondrejko is bringing back the Rock Creek Picnics for 2012, and picking up where former organizer, Buono, left off. The idea seems pretty simple, a gathering of like minded skateboarders for afternoon sessions of shredding, spreading stoke, and making new friends. No prizes, formal competition, or anything fancy, just some good old fun get togethers with area skaters.
The event on Facebook says to “leave the alcohol, drugs, and bad attitudes at home,” and to come stoked, sounds like a good time for everyone!If you’re in or around D.C. it sounds like something to hit up for sure! By the looks of it there will be plenty more, especially as the weather gets nicer, so if you can’t make this one keep your eyes peeled for the future.
Meetup is on Sherril Drive in Washington, D.C. (which I’m assuming is also Rock Creek Park but I’m not from the area) at 12:00 noon and should run until at least 4:00PM, or whenever daylight goes away and people can’t skate anymore. For more information hit up the Facebook event which already has a fair amount of people saying their going and a few more listed as maybe.
