Chicago Declared Skate City, USA!
This year, on international Go Skateboarding Day, June 21, 2006, thousands of empowered skateboarders will declare Chicago as Skate City, USA by kicking off summer in the streets of downtown Chicago with an event known as Emerica’s Wild in the Streets. Wild in the Streets gathers skateboarders of every age, color and creed to converge on city streets around the globe in celebration of pure skateboarding!
Chi-Town was chosen as this year’s Wild in the Streets main event location to support the Midwest skate community and the newly-formed Chicago Skateboarding Organization and to raise awareness and support the city of Chicago’s plans to build the first urban downtown skate plaza in the U.S., Professional skateboarders from the Emerica team and others will join their fellow skateboarders on the streets of Chicago in celebration of pure skateboarding on the first day of summer.
But Wild in the Streets will not be contained to merely Chicago on Go Skateboarding Day. Wild in the Streets is a phenomenal, decentralized grassroots movement on a global level, with over 8,000 skateboarders in over 20 countries participating worldwide last year. This year’s anticipation for the event is even greater and more simultaneous Wild in the Streets events are already being planned! Overall, the number of skateboarders going Wild in the Streets around the world on Go Skateboarding Day will be a shredding experience.
If you’re in the Midwest, Come on over to Chicago on June 21, 2006—you don’t want to miss it! If you can’t make it to Chicago and are interested in organizing your own Wild in the Streets event or finding an event planned near you, or for more information on Chicago’s main event and Emerica’s Wild in the Streets in general, be sure to check out http://www.emericawildinthestreets.com

The Muska Parts With Shorty’s
After an amazing ten years, I would like to announce that I’ve officially decided to part ways with Shorty’s Skateboards. I’d really like to thank all the people at Shorty’s for everything they have done for me over the years, I just feel it’s time to move on so I can focus on my new projects.
As for my new projects, recently I’ve reecently teamed up with Supra Footwear and have finished designing my new shoe that will hit the streets this October. I’ve also been designing my signature pieces for KR3W Clothing that I’m really hyped on. I’m also working on a another project that will be announced some time in the near future. So stay posted, big thanks to everyone for their support, and be sure to check kr3wapparel.com for upcoming news and info.—Chad Muska
