The Street course is pretty much ruined right
now. There has been no repairs done in the 2 years
we've had it. (I'm surprised it has lasted that
far) Primarily BMX'ers are usually in force in
the street area, that's fine.. they can have it.
The Bowl belongs to the skateboarders. BMX pegs
and sprockets cause damage to the pool coping
and ruin the cement.
The bottom line is that we need the bowl to stay.
It is a part of Ballard and would be a shame and
a blow to the skateboarder community if it were
to be bulldozed for no reason other then spite
