Spring has sprung and with it the first big event on the Portland skate calendar is just around the corner. Hosted by Robin “Robskey” McGuirk of Eastside Longboards, the P-Town Throwdown is held on Memorial Day Weekend each year. This week’s Image of the Week; Winning Joy, is from the 2012 event.
The event is a “push race”, a longboard skateboard endurance race running 8.5 miles from Mt. Tabor Park to Sellwood Park. McGuirk has won every event run on this course dating back eight years and will be trying to make it nine this year. Following the event there is a raffle for the participants held at Sellwood Park. Winning Joy was captured during this raffle at last year’s event. The young man in the photo had just won one of the top prizes, the board he’s holding over his head. Everyone enjoyed how excited he was with the possible exception of the young man over his left shoulder!
As always this year’s P-Town Throwdown is a benefit for the Oregon Food Bank. Come on out on Sunday, May 26th to join in the fun and help set a new record for food donations!
