We have been silently working in the background once again to bring you some absolutely amazing news.  Your Fort Wayne Indoor has hooked up a 1 year-long partnership with Harley Davidson of Fort Wayne (HDFW).  Ryan Mitchell and his team of radical folks have taken the time to re-invest their efforts directly back into our community. We have an entire year of activities planned with HDFW and we are going to bring the noise to Fort Wayne Indiana!  We are beyond pumped to have HDFW on board as a Primary sponsor of all the events we through through-out a calendar year.  We will also be onsite at HDFW for a few of their crazy parking lot parties!

Our 1st order of business is to send two patrons of the FWI straight to Minneapolis, MN to observe the X-Games for 4 days and 3 nights.  Harley Davidson of Fort Wayne is picking up the tab for 1 Skateboarder + Parent/Friend & 1 BMX’er + Parent/Friend.  HDFW will also be providing some extras to go along with your X-Games Experience!  The FWI will be sending Dan Butler & Rich Hoppe along for the ride as well.  Dan and Rich have set up some extras as well once on site at the 2018 X-Games!

The criteria and all the details for the X-Games Experience will be released in a few days, until then follow Harley Davidson on all of your social media sites and tell HDFW that they absolutely kick ass!

Mission & Purpose:
The MISSION of The Fort Wayne Indoor BMX & Skatepark
The purpose of The Fort Wayne Indoor’s Annual Block Party is to raise funds to support the mission of the Fort Wayne Indoor Bike & Skate Park. The Fort Wayne Indoor Bike & Skate Park (FWI) is a 501c(3) not for profit organization that serves the bike and skate community of Northeast Indiana. The FWI provides the youth of Fort Wayne the opportunity to build a supportive and inclusive local skating and biking community. The FWI supports this community by providing a custom built indoor facility complete with ramps, rails, and trick features designed and built by local skaters and trick riders.
The FWI goes beyond offering a legal, safe, and clean environment for self-expression through free style riding and skating by hosting competitions and riding events that mix skating, bike riding, and music. Rich Hoppe and Dan Butler’s lifelong dedication to the sports that they love has earned them friends across the industry. These friends and connections work at some of the largest manufacturers in the industry and they routinely support the FWI with prizes and gear to promote local competitions and events.
The Fort Wayne Indoor faces a challenge each and every year. A challenge that cannot be avoided. That challenge is warm weather. The target demographic for the FWI is youth. Once the weather warms and skateboarders and bicyclists can move their interests outdoors to ride for free, the regular revenue stream for the FWI dwindles.
The Fort Wayne Indoor’s Annual Block Party seeks to provide an alternative revenue stream for FWI through sponsorships and ticket sales to fund the park through the summer months. We also seek to use The Fort Wayne Indoor’s Annual Block Party to raise awareness of the Fort Wayne Indoors mission and purpose among potential corporate sponsors to help fund the park.
The Fort Wayne Indoor is supporting the youth of Fort Wayne’s skate, bike, and all wheeled sports in our community and we need your help
Thank You for your continued support!
Rich Hoppe / Dan Bulter / The Board of Directors / All the Volunteers and Supporters of The Fort Wayne Indoor!
