Old Man Jam Skate Comp April 9 2016

Anyone who thinks skateboarding is only for children and teenagers will be proven very very wrong when "Skateboarding's ultimate Old Man  Jam" comes to Ride N' Play on April 9th!

Because of demand since the event was announced, the jam will also be having a women's division. If there are enough registrations, there will be a women's division.  If there are not enough women's registrations for a separate division, they will join the men's jam but have separate ranking.
