Another Support Fort Wayne BMX Fundraising Round this past weekend. This particular fundraiser was about keeping things BMX. No sponsors, no giveaways, no superstars, and nothing but good ol' BMX Action!
We set up shop at 4910 Trails on Saturday at Brad and Laurie Geislemans place to start up the weekend proper like. The day looked rough as we got about an inch of rain the previous evening. But with some help from locals and Mr. Jeremy Ball from Coldwater (who brought his torch down) and a little help from the sun, things were starting to dry out and the gang started to rip! We had people from all over the area come out and join in the fun.
The 4910 Trails are an amazing place for kids of all ages to come out and enjoy the sport we love. We had 2 trips to the ER, one young man broke his collar bone in 2 places, and one old man (Brandon Sassen)tore something in his shoulder. Both parties will be good to go real soon and back at some BMX! Once the trails were rode in clean, we had a show from the likes of Scott Yoquelet, Danny Rumple, Cameron Pressler, Jordan Stark, Jacob Marks, Jake Hattaway, Mikey Noles, Reggie Styles, Brandon from Indy, Brandon Sassen, John Barron (killed it all day on the bench), The Anderson, IN crew with the pack leader Jared Hudson, and a couple crazy chicken chasers from Striebyville came down to flip everything in sight and ride the entire day with out any concern for caution! Good stuff went down all day long, I personally can't ride do to a poor design of the human knee, but I had a blast watching everyone have fun and just hang out with their hommies!
Sunday we had a small mini ramp Jam at Josh Pellots / Reggie Styles house which has the most fun Mini Ramp with 20+ years of Fort Wayne Action Sports behind it. WOLFIE came out and flip fakie to death disaster the 1st drop in. Everyone killed it at the ramp, we BBQ'ed some goodies up and wrapped up the weekend under the lights of the Mini! Good ending to a great weekend of BMX!
The weekend went down without a glitch and we ended up raising nearly $500 for the cause! SUPPORT FORT WAYNE BMX and Support the riders who make up this scene! We still have a long way to go to reach our goal. But, there is no stopping this train! See you at the next event!
