Etnies Footwear is launching a Skatepark
BBQ Tour of the Southern California area starting May 4, 2002 at Camarillo
Skatepark in Camarillo and ending September 7, 2002 at Skateboard Heaven
in downtown San Diego with twenty-eight dates in between (see the Schedule
above). Etnies will be grilling up free food like hot dogs, burgers and
veggie burgers. Well also be giving out cold beverages (sodas &
water), free T-shirts, hats, stickers and holding drawings for free Etnies
DonҒt be surprised if you show up for a free lunch and end up skateboarding
with members of the Etnies skate team
The purpose of this BBQ Tour is to give something back to the skaters and
raise awareness of legislation SB 994*-which will update CaliforniaŒs
skateboarding-related liability laws that will secure the future of public
*Legislation SB 1296, which passed in 1997, made the construction of all
public city-owned skateparks you see around you possible by officially listing
skateboarding as a hazardous recreational activity and freeing cities of
liability. Legislation SB 1296 expires (because of a sunset clause so legislators
could test the law) on December 31, 2002. This means that public city-owned
skateparks could start closing. New Legislation SB 994-introduced by Senator
Bill Morrow to permanently update Californias skateboarding-related
liability laws- is now on the calendar and needs all the help it can get
to be passed before SB 1296 expires at the end of this year. We skaters
are now called upon-as never before-to coordinate our lobbying efforts in
demonstrating to California legislators the importance of keeping public
city-owned skateparks open.
So, when the Etnies Skatepark BBQ Tour rolls through your area, be sure
to stop by, chomp on some grub, session with us and get involved!
