After months of lockdown, no events, no meet ups, no traveling to places such as Wales, where all the best gems are (#WalesistheonlyhillinEngland), the much anticipated announcement finally came to open the doors – and even though things had to be postponed by a week – the season is reopened.Continue reading “Snappy Sheepy by LJ Leme”

BDSL 2017 Prize Ceremony & Annual General Meeting
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:
And event sponsors throughout the year Vandem Longboard Shop, Cult Wheels, Lush Longboards Ltd, Sabre Trucks Brasil, BTR Leathers, AOB – Area One Boards, Slide Perfect Wheels, Gravity House, Boardlogic, SP8BOARDS, Thrill Magazine, RipTide Sports, Inc.
