BOYS! GIRLS! ANYONE IN BETWEEN! Apparently, a proposal has been before Ryde Council for like 30 years to build a skatepark. Last night, the proposal was ACCEPTED! Breaking ground in February! So. Much. Stoke. As I live just outside of Ryde, I didn't hear about this until just last week. So epic props to the folks--skaters and residents alike--who made this happen. It's going to be a multi use type thing with a parkour area and bbq and all kinds of shit. Follow https://www.facebook.com/Skatepark-for-Ryde-289943201026915/ "Skatepark for Ryde" on Facebook to keep up to date with all the jazz and whatever. Interestingly enough, not one person spoke out against the park at the meeting last night. The NIMBYs have reached a new level of wtf tho, comparing people who use skateparks to isis. Another interesting note, frootbooters don't like being called that. Apparently it's homophobic...kay......... As a member of the biggest minority users of skateparks, I was told by a much lesser minority that they're "above it" when called that. I hadn't realised we'd time travelled to 1994, guess I'd better get back to playing with Dr Barbie then and stop bothering the boy folk.
