Thanks to a Brisbane City Council grant supported by Doboy Ward Councillor Ryan Murphy, TRACTION ran the "School's Out" community events at the recently upgraded Murarrie Skate Park on 21-22 September.
The "School's Out" sessions are inclusive, family friendly events intended for forge vibrant local communities. Riders of all ages and experience levels participated in the event, which featured pro-rider demonstrations, 'come and try' and free-ride opportunities, free maintenance and safety checks, sausage sizzle and drinks.
Friday afternoon was a session dedicated to the local scooter community featuring the team from the SYNDICATE Store. Special thanks to Regan, founder of SYNDICATE for leading the session and helping spread the word about the events. SYNDICATE is a Brisbane business with global reach in the scooter industry. It was awesome to have Regan engaging with the community at grassroots level.
Shout out to the broader team of riders from the SYNDICATE crew, who not only demonstrated some awesome moves, but also shared their knowledge with younger riders and leading by example.
The atmosphere on the day was fantastic, with the older and more experienced riders welcoming the young kids and beginners, making them feel safe and helping them find their way on the skate park. All looks good for the future of the local scooter community.
Riders were thrilled with plenty of giveaways from SYNDICATE Store and 3 participants were the lucky winners of 3 new scooters.
Heartfelt thanks to Councillor Ryan Murphy who supported the events first proposed by TRACTION in June and recommended them for community grants through the Brisbane Lord Mayor Suburban Initiatives Fund.
