Game of S.K.A.T.E. recap and review

This past Saturday, May 1st, the Natick Eastern Boarder put on a Game of S.K.A.T.E. Like the fliers said registration started at 12 and the games got under way at 1. Entry and food was free. A small section of the parking lot was blocked off for the event and it had everything a chill, laidback skateboarding event needed—tons of skaters, music, a grill for burgers and dogs, a few boxes and some spectators/gapers.
Steve was holding down the shop with Josh as kids flowed back and forth from the game to the shop, and he must have swapped at least 20 pairs of trucks onto new boards that day. Mac was working the grill grilling up burgers and dogs for the skater’s consumption. I saw a few cameras out getting documentation of the whole event, you probably already saw Josh Zucker’s mini edit from the day here on the blog. Tim “Clayface” was right in the middle of things competing in the event all while repping Clayface and EB Natick. Mike MC'ed and played referee for the event, giving a solid play-by-play of the games, keeping track of the game brackets, and was keeping tricks in check calling redo’s when things looked sketchy.
Games went like this: One-on-one match-ups that dwindled down to a final 3 skaters battling it out for top spot. Games were played with the Berrics rules.
Final results:
1. Matt Jay
2. Pat Hickey
3. Matt Schnorr
Overall the Game of S.K.A.T.E. on May 1st was a sick event with some great skating and some great times. Definitely looking forward to do more of these fun, laidback events. Next time you’re in the shop say thanks to all of the hard working guys at EB Natick.
