Got out to the park for awhile today and shot some pics with Steve. It was nice to be out and enjoy a nice day before it gets super cold. I has been some time since I have had time to spend a solid couple hours at the park.
Some plans are formulating in regards to a new spot. When the idea for a skatepark in Quarryville was first being tossed around, there was talk of a dirt area being done in conjunction with the park. Over the past week I have been in contact with the big boss of SECA to see if plans were still in the works for that, and if not, to see if we could get something going. Steve and I talked to him today and he was very supportive with the idea as long as we could come up with a team to head up the project. While there are certainly some drawbacks to a spot that is open and available to the general public (especially when held in contrast to a spot secluded in the woods), there are some positives as well, things that an isolated woodsy spot can not (generally) provide (water access, no ticks, availability of machinery, three blocks from the house, no worries of being plowed, etc). We will see how things move forward. Probably going to head up to 717 tomorrow to get some digging on.
