BDSL – 2018 Awards Ceremony + AGM

Another year, another amazing show of dedication from racers, skaters and skateboard makers!

BDSL invites you to come join us for our end of year party, awards ceremony and Annual General Meeting (AGM). Please come and enjoy some great local free beer, free food and your friends company.

This year we’ve been amazingly lucky to hook up with one of Bristol’s most iconic hard working brands. Extract Coffee roasters have invited us to celebrate in their roastery, run by a team of absolute grafters, you’ll find more than one skater in their roster and it goes without saying, amazing baristas and coffee on site.

We’re working on a miniramp, but if that fails indoor slalom and other events are possible. Extract is located next to Bristol’s best bouldering wall if you fancy a morning of climbing before an evening of partying, close to the centre and accessible via public cycle ways right from major train stations and bus stations in the city. Also incredibly easy to get to via car. On site free parking is provided.

We hope to see you to celebrate, say thank you to & rabble rouse one last time before the winter hibernation!
See you soon
Dan and the BDSL team

Tregaron Freeride 2018

Once again the Brianne Collective did us all proud at this year’s Tregaron Freeride and we saw some of the best in UK’s downhill skateboarding, luge and even turtle and trike! This year’s event also counted as a National Race in the BDSL calendar. Some great photos of the Tregaron event by Kev Hurdle are featured. Continue reading “Tregaron Freeride 2018”

BDSL AGM – 18th Nov – Bristol

BDSL 2017 Prize Ceremony & Annual General Meeting

Click here for Facebook Event Page

It’s that time of year again! The BDSL Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Prize ceremony. Where all the racers from the year get together to celebrate another banging year, crown our victors and party!

The event will be in Bristol for the second year in a row as the wonderful people at Roll for the Soul have given us exclusive access again! Food should be available as well as a fully stocked bar.

Split into two parts;

AGM – The actual meeting part of the BDSLs year, talking about planned events for 2018, any committee members that want to step down, voting on new members, rule changes, things to work on for 2018 & any other business. This part is rather dry and takes place before the prize ceremony should anyone want to come along. Time to be confirmed.

Prize Ceremony – The fun part of the evening, where we all party. Time to be confirmed.

The event’s a little earlier this year so as not to clash with Skate To Escape’s Double Trouble should mean it’s a little warmer and easier to roll into the bars in Bristol

Also an opportunity to shoot the breeze with this year’s sponsors & event organisers! Big thanks as ever to:

Brianne Collective for putting on brilliant events, BLBB for stepping up and running BLBB Presents: Bolsterstone Outlaw 2017 & Banditos for Bopeep.
