Friday Afternoon Club: Ramp Jam at SK Park Saturday

Skateboard Group Holds Ramp Jam Fundraiser Saturday

By Chris Henry
The South Kitsap Skatepark Association will hold a Ramp Jam fundraiser from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday at South Kitsap Regional Park at the corner of Jackson and Lund avenues in South Kitsap.
The event is aimed at raising money for a world class skateboard facility at the 200-acre park, which is owned by Kitsap County. There will be skateboard contests, prizes, music and food for sale.
Contests are open in beginner, intermediate and advanced categories. The entry fee is $10 per person. Admission to the ramp jam is free.
Kitsap County has committed $300,000 toward the first phase of the one-acre facility, to be designed by Newline Skateparks of British Columbia, as part of its plan for the park. The county last year developed a master plan for the park that will address a range of recreational pursuits.
The all-volunteer skatepark group, formed in 2008, has been working to bring a top notch facility to South Kitsap since the county obtained the park in 2007.
The group has committed to raise $100,000 in cash and in-kind donations toward the $400,000 it will take to build the first phase of the skatepark.
