Save the Fayetteville Skateboard Tree!
The City of Fayetteville, NC is demanding that Mega Skate Plaza, Fayetteville\'s local skate park, destroy the Skateboard Tree, which would take away a major source of pride and inspiration from the Fayetteville Skateboarding Culture. We are asking skateboarders, art lovers and anyone in the Fayetteville Community to support the Mega Skate Plaza and Fayetteville skateboarders by signing our petition to Save the Skateboard Tree. The Skateboard Tree was created by David Beasley and Dorian Motowylak with contributions from skateboarders statewide. Please take a look at our Flickr set of photos of the Skateboard Tree: http://www.flickr.com/photos/blackmtnsnow/2231567050/in/set-72157603825155887/ 10 Reasons to Save the Skateboard Tree! 1.The Tree is a Work of Art. 2.It is a Monument celebrating the effort & dedication of Fayetteville Skateboarders. 3.The Tree promotes Freedom of Expression. 4.It is a Source of Inspiration for Fayetteville Skateboarders. 5.The Tree represents a goal for Young Skateboarders who cannot wait to break a board for the tree. 6.The Tree is a symbol of the growth of the Fayetteville Skate Culture 7.Fayetteville needs more open displays of art & creativity. 8.The Tree is a Monument to Terry Grimble, Godfather of the Skateboarding Culture in Fayetteville. 9.The Tree brings Blount Street to life. 10.The Board Tree is a symbol of Youth and Vitality for the Downtown area!
