Yes indeed folks, it’s back to that time of the year when you can smell the gun smoke in the air.  Time to put on those big boy pants and get to The Battle for Midwest BMX for all the fame and glory! (Actually a trophy and a bunch of great memories)  The Battle Series started five years ago, the idea and concept was to provide something fun for us BMX minded people to do over the winter months.  We support local skateparks around the midwest area and we provide a positive and overall great environment for the entire family to come out and enjoy.  The battle series is designed 100% around having fun and enjoying the sport that brings all of us so much joy.

Sponsors: Summit CIty Bicycles & Fitness / Wonder Wheels BMX

The year 2018 will bring us even more fun and good times as we push each other to the next level by competing against one another in the 5th annual Battle for Midwest BMX!  I am stoked beyond belief that you all made this possible for the past 4 years and am ready to continue this contest well into the future.  I thank each and every one of you who comes out to spend a day with some rowdy ol BMX’ers!

Happy New Year and I cannot wait to see everyone in Fort Wayne, Indiana this Saturday as we kick off 2018 in true BMX style!

Overall Winners from Beginner, Intermediate, & Expert win a free week of camp at Ohio Dreams!

Mission & Purpose:
The MISSION of The Fort Wayne Indoor BMX & Skatepark
IS TO PROVIDE A SAFE, LEGAL, AND POSITIVE RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR MULTI-AGED LOCALS TO GROW THEIR BMX / SKATING SKILLS, WHILE BUILDING SELF-CONFIDENCE AND ENRICHING THEIR LIVES BY BECOMING A PART OF A UNIQUE COMMUNITY.
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!

Rich Hoppe & Dan Butler

We want to start this update off with a Huge Thank You to all of you amazing Fort Wayne Indoor Supporters.  We just wrapped up our 3rd season as the area’s ONLY Indoor BMX & Skate facility!

We started out this season with a COMPLETE rebuild.  We literally tore down every single ramp in the building, downsized the park by 4,000 sq ft (now 7,000 sq ft) and ended up with an amazingly fun and cool place to ride.  Huge thanks to Brian Leonard for spearheading and spending countless hours at the park during the rebuild (props to Aiden & Jaise Jordan also for their non-stop help)

The Rebuild…..

The season started out well as we are super dependent upon the weather.  We opened up the 1st week of November and the cash flow helped get us out of last year’s debt for the 1st few months. We reorganized our pricing structure by adding a $10 Yearly Fee to help offset Insurance, Electric, Gas, etc. By the time February hit, so did 70 degrees and of course folks want to be outside enjoying the outdoors.   The remainder of the winter was extremely slow in comparison to the 1st few months.

Rebuild 2016

We rely on a mix of cash flow through-out the year.  This time of the year we ask for your help to ensure that this unique facility of ours stays open for our community.  Because we are a non-for-profit 501(c)3,   all of your donated money can be written off on your taxes for 2018.  We are 100% Volunteer and 100% committed to keeping the doors open, here in Fort Wayne, IN.  We are always working on new ways and efforts to make the park successful.

Please take a few minutes and donate any amount you can afford; every single dollar goes towards a community of amazing individuals.

Click Here to Donate Now!

Sincerely,

Rich Hoppe / Dan Butler and the Entire Fort Wayne Indoors Group of Radical Volunteers.
