Lets Help Out New Rinks

Good morning everyone. It is a very clear sunny day here in Atlanta Georgia. So clear in fact that I can make out the Mercedes Benz Stadium from the office through the skinny trees that line the Southeastern Skate Supply property. I believe this is one of the last places that you can see the Atlanta skyline without being in a expensive condo or a large million dollar house. Hopefully developers stay away from Veterans Memorial Highway.

However, that was short lived. As rental skate trucks lined the outskirts of the park and more people came to skate, residents neighboring the park became upset.

With the power to influence so many people, the news stations narrative began to change the citizens of San Francisco view of the Golden Gate skaters.
Understanding the implication of this a passionate group of skaters feared a full ban in Golden Gate Park, so they met with Assistant Recreation and Parks Super…
