Skate For Splash is an amazingly fun event that took place July 28/12. B&R Promotions and Kiwanis club Belleville teamed up with BSE Skateshop to make this happen. Initial expectations were high for entries but unfortunately a large number of competitors from the Kingston area were unable to make it. Despite this, we still had 35 competitors in three age categories plus quite a number of spectators in attendance. We are in the beginning stages of planning for next years event that may see BMX bikes involved as well.
