Roundwall Rumble Skateboard Contest
Local kids get a chance to shine at todays Roundwall Rumble Skateboard Contest, an open-call competition. You can expect to see a lot of airs, carving, grinding and plants, says Michael Niemann, one of the events organizers. Were expecting about 100 kids. Its all very fast and action-packed. Spectators can expect lots of thrills and spills. The head judge is local pro Jason Espeseth; along with his cohorts, hell be handing out $500 in prize money to the top winners. Niemann says hes hoping for a contingent of female skaters. We cant say for sure, but wed like to have a girls division. If we dont get enough for a separate division, Im sure that theyll mix it up with the boys. 6 to 10 p.m. The Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark, 103 Sabine.
