If you are in the Indiana area, you probably heard that the New Republic skatepark in Fort Wayne had been shut down this past spring when the lease was cut short. Rich Hoppe hit us up with some news that they’re starting a fund raiser page on Go Fund Me to raise $10,000 to get a new facility up and running at a location they have found. They only have a month to raise the money needed to get the lease secured or the park won’t happen! If you are in the area or if you just want to support the park, hit this LINK for more details!
Here’s an updated flyer and reminder that the Battle for Northern Indiana is coming up! Make your way to the New Republic park on February 9th and The Kitchen on the 16th to get yourself in on some good times!
Here’s one our friend Rich Hoppe just sent over from the spot check ESPN BMX dropped from the New Republic skatepark in Fort Wayne, Indiana that he’s involved with! This gives you a little background on the park along with a ton of great riding from the locals, Rich and even some Karl Poynter footage! Well worth a look!
