Know Your Odds Skate, Scoot and BMX Competition returns to Burnie

Returning again for 2017, the Know Your Odds Skate, Scoot & BMX competition series is back on the North West Coast.

The Burnie Skate Park event which will be held on Saturday March 18 at 11 am will see competitors of all ages busting their best spins, flips and grinds as they vie for their share of the $1,500 worth of prizes on offer. 

This event is a great opportunity for riders to test their skills and also for the community to come along and be amazed by the sporting abilities of our youth. All competitors MUST wear helmets, and those under 18yrs must have a registration form signed by their parent or guardian.

Burnie City Council Mayor Anita Dow said, “This series provides a fun and positive recreational opportunity for the region’s youth. At the same time we are also able to help increase awareness about problem gambling.”

As an added bonus for this year’s competition, two days before the Skate, Scoot and BMX competition the Melbourne-based group PERFORMPRINT Experimental Printmaking and Live Art will be assisted by a pro skateboarder to print their entry to this years’ Burnie Print Prize. The skate/print action will take place at the Burnie Regional Art Gallery on Thursday 16 March at 2 pm, and is open to the public.

The competition in Burnie is organised by Burnie City Council, Red Herring Surf Burnie and Know Your Odds.
