Last Friday, Sk8skool and Ringling College of Art & Design’s Project Management class combined forces to bring us the SRQ SK8 JAM. $5 got you an evening of live music, artist booths, food & drink, and skateboarding. 100% of the proceeds went to Sk8skool to help with operational costs at P(a)yne Skate Park and to the eventual elimination of user-fees at the skate park altogether. I had a prior obligation which, unfortunately, allowed me to only be at this event for a short time. As far as I could tell, there were at least 200 people there, probably more! I did manage to shoot a few photos. – Nicks.
