DC Plaza Opening, Blind Euro Tour

GRAND OPENING FOR THE FIRST SKATE PLAZA IN KETTERING, OHIO SET FOR JUNE 11-12, 2005

As the long awaited first Skate Plaza nears its completion in Kettering, Ohio, the plans for the grand opening ceremony are underway. The ceremony is officially scheduled for June 11 -12th, 2005 at Indian Riffle Park in Kettering, Ohio.

The Rob Dyrdek/DC Shoes Skate Plaza Foundation, formed by professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek and sponsor DC Shoes, Inc., along with the City of Kettering will host the Grand Opening Ceremony. The weekend will include pro demos and contests, with more details to follow.

The first Skate Plaza was funded through donations from the Foundation, DC Shoes, Inc., Alien Workshop and matching funds from the City of Kettering.

The Rob Dyrdek/DC Shoes Skate Plaza Foundation seeks to promote the sport of skateboarding by assisting municipalities to fund the design, development, and construction of Skate Plazas—aesthetically pleasing, multi-use, admission-free, public facilities—where the sport of skateboarding in its purest form is encouraged rather than discouraged.
