Default Squiggy Cancelled

I just happen to run into this Forum and wanted to comment.

The skate has not gone away, were just trying to place it another day and time. Meanwhile, the Bike Club that is running Squiggy at Flatwoods (The WTA) does not want the skaters there, as we have seem to have gotten in the way of all their alloted times and dates (Believe me, the Skaters have NO "Zero" say-so in any of the meetings). The Senior Park Ranger has shown his favor by leaning towards WTA views, and have meanwhile priced us (the skaters) out of the park. Meaning; after paying an online registration fee like everyone has done in the past, the County Ranger has added a mandatory $10 per head, per event the day of. In other words, there will be someone there from the County to collect an additional $10 for every person that shows up for the Time Trials, $10 for the Full Moon Skate, and $10 for the Marathon... and non of that will go towards t-shirts, trophies, prizes, etc., for the Skaters (you're on your own on that). I have proof, I have the e-mails from both the County and WTA. Sorry, but we originated the Skate to have Fun, not to make money, so we have the right to cancell what we created. If someone is willing to support the park and the Bike Club's bottom line, that's fine. We're not going to stop them. Frankly, i'd rather skate and have fun with my all friends.... than worry about how much money we're going to make for an Event.

Hope that clear things up a little. Please stay tunned, more skating news to come for the Tampa Bay Area! We appreciate everyone's support in our Events. Just please, be patient.
