    Default GGLB Presents: Madness In The Mitten Distance Race

    Madness In The Mitten Longboard Distance Race
    Presented by Go Green Longboarding,
    Bustin Boards - Madness in the Mitten - Feenixx customs


    April 18th 2009, Lansing, Michigan.

    Race Starts 11:00 AM, Show up early to register and/or check in.

    Meeting Location: Ranney Park Public Skate Park. Riders are encouraged to show up early to enjoy the free public concrete skate park. From there, Riders will proceed to a paved multi-purpose trail.

    Directions: From I-96, Take 127 North to the Kalamazoo St exit. Proceed to the 2nd intersection and turn right on Michigan Ave. The skate park is on the left-hand side, this is a divided road so a u-turn is necessary. (Look for Dunhams)

    Race Path: 4 Miles of the Lansing river trail, stretching from Clippert/Kalamazoo in East Lansing, through downtown Lansing to Oakland avenue. it is a short skate from the finish of the race to a bus route which goes almost directly back to the meeting location (busses come every 10-15 minutes), or riders can choose to skate back to the skate park. After meeting back at the park, if enough riders are interested, there will be a caravan to a hill for some sliding.

    Entry and Prizes

    Riders are encouraged register early with gogreenlongboarding@yahoo.com. Please provide your first and last name, and you will be provided with a rider number. To enter the distance race and be eligible to win prizes either for placing or through the prize raffle, a $10 entry fee must be paid. In the event a rider simply wants to attend to skate, the rider will be asked to start behind the racers, and will not be eligible to win the race.

    1st Place - 50% of entry fees, and a BUSTIN STRIKE DECK!
    2nd Place - 30% of entry fees, first pick from remaining prizes
    3rd Place – 20% of entry fees, 2nd pick from remaining prizes

    All other racers will be given entries into a raffle for skate goods, clothes, and other items yet to be determined. Feenixx Customs is donating a mini to the prize pool.

    Rules and responsibilities: We are guests on this trial. The first ½ mile of the race, it may be difficult to pass effectively, however riders are not to force each other or other users of the trail, off of the trail for any reason. Helmets and hand protection are strongly encouraged. Riders are responsible for keeping themselves and their boards under control at all times, and by law no alcohol is to be allowed on the trail or in the city skate park.

    Lets make this a great event so we can have it annually.

    Just to make things a little easier here is the google maps address for Modern Skate and Surf:

    modern skate and surf loc: East Lansing, MI 48825 - Google Maps

    it is right next to the skate park, and a decent shop if you are looking for clothing or skate gear (not so much longboarding, but they DO have stuff)

    We abandoned that idea pretty early in the thread because of a few reasons. If you're spending the night we can definitely hit a few though.

    Anyone who is spending the night, we'd be more than happy to show you around town, skate the garages, cruise campus, hit the bars?!?!?!, possibly slalom on sunday. We'll show you a good time for sure.
