Support is needed. Free youth center needs support.

We have only 1 week before our building permits expire and we could be forced to demo everything... We must install about 5,000 screws before we can pass our required inspection....We need volunteers and heavy duty screw guns! All the hard work Josh Baroni, Trent Sommers, Craig Bortman did installing 14,500 lbs of 3/4" Plywood with the help of The Rock Church Members, Miguel Velasquez, Eric Vance, Juan Veelasquez, Joe the Forklift Operator, John the Ironworker, Steve Bradford and his friends from Riverview Church. All the hard work from year after year of volunteers will go down the drain and it will be RIP Join Hands Save A Life 1990 to 2014.

Great story!!  What was your first skateboard like?

Great story!! What was your first skateboard like?

WHO KNEW????? In 1962-63, in Vista, California about 7 miles from Carlsbad, I and many other kids, (I was 10) were beating the crap out of our poor devoted roller skates and nailing and bending nails over, onto scraps of plywood. My first feat was to complete the run of a 1/2 acre long driveway with a grown-up's cup of hot coffee without spilling. I was delighted! Don't forget the sport's roots youngin's! A number of years ago, I searched for and found the key. (Antique store) Years later, I found the skates at an antique faire! Wish I still had my own, but they got the hell beat out of them! Now I'm a trucker (18 wheels) and cars are referred to as roller skates! What goes around comes around! Skateboarding is NOT A CRIME! but it can still be fun!
