Park Slalom Banner

On June 1st, a park slalom event was held at the Aumsville skatepark as part of the Oregon State Games. The turn out was good and folks seemed to be enjoying themselves. Who would have thought a few plastic cones duct taped to the walls of a skatepark could be so much fun. Thanks to Pat and the other volunteers for putting on a great event.

  • That looks like a blast. Is it on for next year, or are there any similar events this summer? I’m definitely in.

    Doesn’t surprise me that that kid Brogan had the fastest time. I saw him at Battle Ground the next day and his speed and carve lines in the clover were most impressive.

  • Great coverage of the event! thanks for the pics.

    That was a real fun event and well run. electric timing was a big plus. The park slalom is great cause you average skater can just jump in and compete.

    Brogan was smoking that course. Adam was trying to catch the whole time. Great competition.

  • June 23rd at West Linn- Hosted by Tom Inouye and Mike Estes with Electronic Timing. We’ve already tested the system and its awesome.

    Registration is from 8-9 race starts at 9:15 Entry is $8 bucks. 2 Runs Best Time Counts…..I’m posting the flyer right now on See ya all there…….

  • This event will be held next year as part of the Oregon State Games.

    I had fun organizing the event (I compete in normal slalom) and I hope I can gain enough skill to do the park slalom next year. Maybe I’ll add a 50 year-old division so I have a chance….

  • This year, the Oregon State Games will not have park slalom (unless someone else organizes it). Instead, we will be having a slide competition and GS race at Mt Tabor Park in Portland.
