There's a new Skatepark in town! It has over 30,000 sq. feet of spaces for skating and doing tricks, jumps, etc.

Go wide, fast, use flash... we'll gather in the parking lot before heading into the park to shoot. 

*New meetup date: Wed., 7/9, 6pm

(Rain date in case it is a washout: Wed., 7/16 6pm)

I messaged the Skatepark through their facebook page, but they never responded. The park seems to be busy every day, so we should have no problem finding some people to photograph.

I would personally ask for releases for anyone I wanted to shoot and possibly use in my portfolio later. And I'm sure that boarders would appreciate a copy of a good shot in an email or to use on social networking, I'm sure. Bring your model releases, business cards or notepad and a pen to exchange contact info. with your subjects. 

Check out their webpage or their Facebook page for more info.:

    Feel free to comment and criticize them.
    I want to thank Frank for everything, good hints and good spirit.
    As I explained to some of you Michigan is big enough to not find good places like this one.
    More for foreign people like me.

    I am going to let-in the waitlister (+1). A gentle reminder for everyone-- please change your RSVP to "No" before the start time if you can't make it. There is nothing worse than a "no show" for a meetup event. Thanks-- see you there!

    I am iffy for 7/9 for minor health reasons. I really want to go, but may have to cancel after a 10 am Dr. appt. I don't want to lose my spot if it's put off until next week though, so apologies to the wait listers for the possibility of a late cancellation. :-(

    • Frank K.

      Thanks for the heads-up. I hope your appt. goes well, Debbie.

    I'd love to join but just remembered an class I'm starting at 7pm. Perhaps I'll go another night this week!

    It might rain. This is a Michigan summer and you just never know. Unless it is an absolute downpour at 5, 5:30, we'll plan on meeting. I'll check the radar and will send out an email message and will post on the wall here before I head out on the bus for this event. Should be fun!

    • Frank K.

      I just received an email about this, so I'll be clear... I know that the meetup is scheduled for Wed., 7/9. I just wanted to give a heads-up in case of a torrential downpour. The forecast says we might have rain tomorrow too.

    The new date doesn't work for me either.

    July 2

    • Frank K.

      Rats, sorry about that. If this goes well, as I expect it will, we can schedule other meetups at the skatepark on the weekend or another weeknight.

    So is there an entrance fee for people to enter the park? It looks like quite a spectacular complex - one that would charge people to enter.

    • Annie

      It looks like it's a nonprofit? I noticed there was a request for donations but no fee that I could see.

      1 · June 30

    • Frank K.

      No charge, open every day, they've been fundraising for years. Check out their website and make a donation if you'd like. But there is no charge to attend.

    Unfortunately the new date does not work for me.

    I'll bring my 13 year old visiting cousin along. He's not a photog but he loves skating so hope he'll enjoy this! See you then!

    I stopped by tonight and it was packed, kids were ripping it up at 8:15pm. They're open until 10 each night... I'm likely going to change the time, possibly the day... stay tuned. I'll finalize the time after I talk to someone in parks + rec. and then I'll send out a global announcement...

    June 22

  • Frank K.

    I still don't have confirmation on the date and time. I'm working on it... they're working on the grand opening. I'll post something once I have a good day/time and then I'll "Announce" this to the group. Soon...

    June 19

  • Debbie M.

    Oh, this sounds like a lot of fun! Looking forward to it :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
