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.

Sincerely,

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

The past holiday weekend at the park was filled a bunch of rad folks who came out on Saturday to support the young and old bucks as we presented our 1st Skateboard contest of this 2017 season, “Skatesgiving” sponsored by national brands, Creature Skateboards & Independent Trucks!

The day began at 2pm with the beginner class taking the course directly at 3:30pm event emcee was Matt Hanes who kept everyone entertained through-out the day.  We hosted 3 classes and everyone who entered skated extremely well.  The vibe was amazing all day long, inside we were cranking out tunes by Metallica, Pantera, and even some Black Sabbath during the contest!

25 folks entered in total and Frank Gray from the Journal Gazette showed up to report the action in Sundays newspaper, Logan Atkinson made the front page of the Metro section. Thanks for the support Frank and the Journal!  Click here to view the write up!

Matt Hanes

This past month Dan Butler organized a benefit to help out Matt Hanes a Fort Wayne Skateboarder for over 30 years. as well as an overall good friend and contributor to the scenes in and around our local region.

Matt recently discovered that he has a stage 4 Kidney disease and also even more recently had hip replacement surgery (One of Two)

Matt has been off work for nearly 8 months and we are proud to have helped him out by raising enough $$’s to cover a full months mortgage on his house.

Here is a letter Matt sent over, true passion and nothing but love from this amazing human!
