2015 It’s My Skate Night Recap

It’s My Skate Night has had a great year! We shared a lot of memorable moments with our supporters throughout 2015 and we thank you for riding along! Here’s a brief recap of a few of IMSN’s top moments of  2015.

IMSN and the Baltimore Uprising

One of the most serious events that made national news coverage in 2015 was the Baltimore Uprising following Freddie Gray’s death. This happened in our home town, blocks away from our home rink. During the aftermath,  it was a proud moment to see the  Baltimore skate community come together at ground zero to lift the spirits of our city in a great impromptu community building event.

#IMSN – Baltimore Peaceful Protesters

As you may know, after the height of the the civil unrest in #Baltimore, the Bmore skate fam got together to demonstrate peacefully in our skates at ground zero. This is a mash-up video tribute of my personal experience of that. The positive energy was flowing. It was truly a great sight. Love.#IMSN #itsmyskatenight #HealBaltimore #OneBaltimore #AmericanOxygen #RihannaDontSueMe

Even though we didn’t set out to get publicity we’ve been featured in the Baltimore Sun Paper and on Vice Sports (Click to read full article).

Jubilee Arts Community Building Event

IMSN helped Jubilee Arts  celebrate the local professional and teen artist as they unveil the Sandtown mural project. Complete with trolley tours, music, performances, and food this event was one for the books.

Artscape Weekend (during heat wave)!

2015 marked the 2nd year we performed at Artscape – the nation’s largest free arts festival. The temperatures reached well into the 90s and yet the skaters kept rolling to the live music provided by DJ JB. Kudos to all that came out and skated in oppressively humid tropical rain forest like conditions!

Hampden Skate Park Vs. It’s My Skate Night

Inspired by Chicks in Bowls and stupidity, the It’s My Skate Night crew tackled the skate park in Hampden Baltimore with near disastrous results. We vow not to do it again unless the Chicks in Bowls accompany us to show us the ropes (yes, we’re calling you gals out ;-).

New Home for the IMSN Baby

After a two years of taking (marginally) good care of our “mascot” we found a new home for the IMSN baby doll. She’s in better hands now. Please send photos. We’d love to see her in her new home.  CLICK HERE to listen to our Podcast to get the full back-story.
