I wanted to let everyone know about an upcoming charity dirt MTB & BMX contest I am hosting in Lake Havasu, AZ on Oct. 27. The event is to help raise money to build a memorial skate park honoring Patrick Tinnell, a Lake Havasu local who used to ride and was killed while on duty in the armed forces in the Middle East. If you want to get more details about the skate park and event, here's the link for the website http://lhcdirtchallenge.com
. All of the money we raise will go towards building this new park that will benefit the kids. This is the first year we're holding this event, and we're expecting the 3,000-seat arena to be packed with spectators.
We've already confirmed that Pat "Big Daddy" Laughlin, Colton Satterfield, Josh Hult, Ben Snowden, Matthew Olsen, Jake Kinney and TJ Ellis and many more will be competing, plus Fat Tony will be announcing! Sign ups are open online at http://lhcdirtchallenge.com
where you can save money by registering in advance. Pro sign ups are $40 online, $50 at the event, and Amateurs are $10 online, $15 at the event. Check out the course layout to see the Pro and Amateur lines! There is a $5,000 Pro purse, and Amateurs will receive prizes from DK Bicycles, TSG, Sidewall and more!
If you know anyone who might be interested in sponsoring the event or donating product for prizes, please tell them to contact Mark at 928-486-6494. We can get anyone who needs it a 501-C tax deduction form for any donations that are made towards helping build this park to honor Patrick and help out the local Havasu kids. Looking forward to a successful day!
