Today was a great day. The standard of skating as always was ridiculous and a special mention has to go to the 12 and unders little rippers putting on a show people twice their age would be proud of. Thanks for all of you for coming down and making these days what they are and all our sponsors for supporting us.

With 35 hours to go thought I better put up a few more details.
We open at 10 with the 12 and under comp starting at 12 it’ll be run as a half hour jam with only the young guns on the park.
Next will be the 16 and under at about 13.30 this comp and the ones that follow will run with heats and a final. 4 or 5 people will be on at once for 3 minutes with the top 4/5 skaters going through to do battle for supremacy.
The over 16 will be at 15.00 and the pro/sponsored will go off at 16.30 and it always does.
Between the over 16 and the main event this years mini comp will be a highest ollie over the huge mound of no fear energy drinks we’ve got with the winner getting whatever they manage to clear.
Registration for the comps will be in the office on the day and we do limit each event to 30 skaters and it’s first come first served so don’t turn up too late.
Food it being served up by our usual excellent friends from the bhaji shop thali cafe and this year as part of no fear energy drinks skatepark take down tour capital FM will be providing the sound track.
We can’t do these things without help, this year Death skateboards, Heroin skateboards, Landscape Skateboards, Lives & Levels, Stereo Sound Agency, Skateboard Cafe, Props Skatestore, Slugger Skate Store Sheffield, Legacy Skatestore, Avit, Skateboard & BMX Shop, The Skateboard School and No Fear Extreme Energy are backing us up.
As always it’s £5 to get in to skate/spectate/enter.
Feel like you’re drifting, going nowhere, a small fish in a big pond in need of cash and a mission to prove your worth and bring you fame? Worry no more, the House Comp is just around the corner with enough cash and product prizes to make you feel valued, and with the ideal arena for you to show what you’re made of. So put down that console, dust off your deck and come visit us on 13th September for a House Comp that’s all you hoped for and more besides. This year we’ve got another fine array of sponsors including skate companies and local shops who’ll be supporting us by offering up some fine prizes. But there’ll be cash prizes too, and this year the Pro prize fund is being provided by our title sponsor No Fear, who’ll be joining us on the day as the finale to their Skate Park Take Over Tour. So expect an added bonus from them with product giveaways and DJs from Capital XTRA. Very generously, No Fear are stumping up our £1,000 prize for the Pro Comp. More details to follow, but if you’ve been to one of our comps, you know how we do things…

Sunday is the day the Tour de France second stage arrives in Sheffield, which means travelling to The House might be a bit more complicated than usual, thanks to road closures and restrictions to public transport at certain times of the day. We’re open as normal and getting to us from the South side of Sheffield or the M1, everything should be running as usual (trams and buses). From the north side you may have to go out to the M1 and come back in through junction 33 or up through the Manor estate area. Sections of Herries Road and Halifax Road will be closed off so check transport arrangements here http://www.welcometosheffield.co.uk/grand-depart-sheffield/route-information before you set off, and good luck!
