Spausa and Concrete Disciples (with the sponsoring of isTia) are presenting the fourth stop of the OG Skate Jam 2012 in the prestigious Combi Pool at Vans skatepark on Saturday September 15th. The OG Skate Jam was created several of months ago with the idea that Old Guys too can participate in contests. The first stop was at Pedlow and the second stop was at Skatelab.

During the third stop, much more skaters showed up. The third stop was held at The Cove Skatepark of Santa Monica on August 30th, 2012 and saw Eddie Hadvina winning the 50+, Bernie O’Down winning the

40-49, Kevin Burke winning the 30-39 and Melissa Splillman winning tge girl’s division.

The fourth stop of the OG Skate Jam was supposed to be held at Etnies skate park of Lake Forest. Everything had been prepared, the flyers, the tee shirts, the invitation, the medals, all of this with the Etnies Skatepark name on it, Lake Forest had agreed to co-sponsor our event - as all the cities have.

But at the last minute, actually 1 day before the event, Etnies asked for a $500 fee to use the park and extra insurance costing $450. We have no choice but to change locations. It took a couple of week to secure the new Vans location, but Steve Van Doren eventually confirmed that the use of the Combi was a go for the OG’s.

If you plan to participate, remember that Vans requires a list of competitors to get access to the bowl, so you need to preregister with Heidi Lemmon - To make it easy if you have ever competed in any of the OG events you will have your name on the list already. If this is your first, please register with Concrete Disciples ( or Heidi Lemmon

Spectators will not be allowed around the bowl, the upper mezzanine is the viewing area for spectators. Only competitors, pre-registered media, judges, and a few volunteers are allowed to access the Combi bowl area. The skatepark will be open as usual in the rest of the park. Hopefully we'll get the roll up door open on the square side for a few people to be able to watch.

Ladies Division looks to be on again. Over 30 and still shredding, the Old Gal Jam Series is on!
