Did someone say ‘extreme’?: Blue Ridge Games come to Brevard

This doesn’t give you much time to perfect your backside bluntslide or frontside 180 pivot body varial, but get out there and try it anyway. Zero Gravity Skatepark is the local host of the Blue Ridge Games competition series, which starts tomorrow, Sept. 22, with a skateboard contest at the Brevard facility.

The event begins at 1 p.m. and continues until 9 p.m. Beginners, intermediate and advanced divisions will compete. Registration is $15 for park members and $18 for nonmembers. Spectating is free. That’s right, free.

For details including directions, call 862-6700 or visit the park Web site.
