This coming Saturday, September 27th 2008 you can skate in one of Europe’s oldest snakeruns in Liege/LÃ¼ttich, Belgium. Here’s all of the info from the guys organizing this cool event:
The Bocal Mostard crew organizes a big party on the 27 September to celebrate the 30th birthday of the snakerun of LiÃ¨ge (Luik/LÃ¼ttich in Belgium).
It’s the oldest skatepark in Belgium and one of the last in this style in Europe. It’s still skateable because of new concrete in 2000! That’s a real estate for the communities of BMX and skateboard.
This event is a good occasion to interpellate the local politicians about the future of the place – 15 000 mâ€ nearly in the abandon…
Four years ago, the BMXers and the skateboarders have got together in order to create different activities in the skatepark. Our crew wanted to preserve the spot but also to do it evolving…
We realized 3 concrete workshops, we built little DIY extensions around the snakerun. We organized also some jam sessions, benefit event, etc.
Today, we are going to propose to the City a project about an urbanism of all this sport area. We need some new adapted elements for skate, BMX, MBT, roller in inline and all the other sports… but also a green environment for us and all the neighborhoods.
We really need your support!
