Straight from the grubby little fingers of Kev McKeon…
“I’m planning a series of bi-monthly (that’s the aim) demos at skateparks titled “Gyppo Army days” at indoor skateparks throughout the country.
Briefly they’re a group of sessions with the Gyppo Army team plus whoever I can force into a car/bully into catching a train or coach going to a skatepark to meet up and skate.
The winter is coming and this is a good way to support indoor skateparks by increasing attendances as well as supporting local scenes, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a sponsored skater or a kid just starting out, the main aim is to have everybody skating together in a large crowd and having fun, then giving some stuff out, having a few drinks, going home and meeting back up again somewhere new a couple of weeks later to do the same thing!
I’m up for doing this with most skateparks in the U.K so if you work/manage/run a skatepark and would like to organise something at your park don’t hesitate about getting in touch with me!
Upcoming events include:
Friday 10th October – Unit 1 skatepark Kent. Night session (5-10pm).
Saturday 25th October – X-site skatepark, Skegness
Saturday 8th November – Revolution skatepark, Kent
