When: June 1st
Where: Woodcrest Drive, North Andover Massachusetts
Tyler Bainbridge’s second annual Longboard for Life event is back for 2013! Tyler and the organizers are hosting the slide jam to raise money for the American Cancer Society. There will be a 10-15 dollar entry fee for all those hoping to compete. Last year the event raised $1500 dollars, and with double the attendees expected this year, the event should raise far more.
The event will be completely sanctioned, meaning no cars and no cops to ruin our fun. With a very high level of competition last year, the jam will be split up into a “pro” division for those seasoned riders, and a grom/amateur division for the less experienced. With over 100 competitors expected this year, the different divisions will allow for the newer guys to get all the time they want on the hill while still allowing for some intense, high speed riding to keep the energy high.
The Longboard for Life slide jam is sure to be a rad time. Come out, skate, and support a great cause. You can find out more and RSVP through the Facebook Event.
